The collaboration between the Office of the Vice-Chancellor and the Centre for Communication Studies (CCS) of The University of Guyana brings to you this Volume 2: No. 4 edition of Renaissance, a monthly newsletter. Renaissance is the Vice-Chancellor’s medium of sharing with you our University’s developments.

The months of April, May and June were filled with activities. UG observed its Annual Sports Day and World Press Freedom Day. Reflect on the Faculty of Social Sciences’ (FSS) Department of Sociology and Centre for Communication Studies exhibitions along with UG’s activity to honour Professor Ulric Trotz.

In this edition take pleasure in reading the profiles of UG Alumnus and Minister of Finance, Honourable Winston Jordan, FSS’ Assistant Dean, Diana Gobin and UG’s Student Society President, Ron Glasgow. Also learn of the outstanding achievement of Mr Winslow Craig, Master Sculptor and Lecturer.

Our University has received tremendous support from the private sector. Read about our recently signed pact with MovieTowneInc and DaChin Development Inc, to develop a solar farm and new student housing. Additionally Grace Kennedy recently awarded some of our students with prizes and tuition as rewards for using their services. We thank the private sector for their interest in collaborating with UG for a more developed and sustainable university.

UG recently hosted the Carter Center’s Constitutional Reform Symposium along with Bridges Global Medical Missions’ Continuing Medical Education Conference. Moreover learn more about our upcoming Inaugural Diaspora Conference and how you can contribute towards this event and to our nation’s premiere academic institution.

As you read, be inspired to join us as we celebrate UG’s Renaissance
