WCE Visits Universities in Ethiopia
Dr. Seneshaw Tsegaye and Dean Kagdi of WCE had a wonderful opportunity to take FGCU’s message on the road. They recently travelled to Africa and visited three exceptional public universities in Ethiopia: Bonga University, Bahir Dar University, and Addis Ababa University. Bonga University is young and rapidly advancing, and it has close resemblance to FGCU’s story. Bahir Dar University and Addis Ababa University (flagship) are considered to be top-tier institutions of higher education in Ethiopia. They met with university presidents, high-ranking university officials, community and political leaders, faculty, students, and staff. We share the common values of academic excellence, student success, and community engagement. The discussions led to identifying areas of collaboration in academic programs, sharing expertise and experience, and capacity building. Implementation plans were sketched out to move to the next stage of our mutually beneficial partnerships. We are grateful for their generous hospitality in hosting us. Stay tuned for more!
