  • OHIO UNIVERSITY STUDENTS END VISIT TO AUCC

    Nineteen (19) Students from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, USA led by Dr. Yusuf Kalyango, Director of the Institute for International Journalism and Dr. Steve Howard, Director of the African Studies Programme of the same university have ended their three-week visit to the African University College of Communications (AUCC) in Accra, Ghana.The students and their professors were at AUCC as part of a credit class on Media, Society and Governance that requires students to stimulate and broaden their thinking about media, governance and society in Ghana through experiential learning in a university in a foreign country. They were in Ghana from December 16, 2013 to January 8, 2014.  In an interview, Dr. Kalyongo indicated that   Ohio University selected AUCC for this project because of the similarity of the AUCC Communication programme to that of the Scripps College of Communication of Ohio University. He revealed that only nineteen students were selected out of the hundreds who had applied to be part of this highly competitive study abroad programme in Ghana.As part of the programme, the students   attended lectures on media and governance, undertook field trips to various parts of Ghana including Cape-Coast in the Central region  and Ada in the Greater Accra region. At the end of their visit, the students are expected to disseminate their observations and findings in the form of documentaries, write –ups, tweets and blogs which they will disseminate via traditional media like the TV documentary and on social media. Speaking about his experience in Ghana, Joe Jackson, an American student of Ohio University stated that he had observed a hidden and amazing beauty of Ghana’s rich culture and traditions as expressed in activities such as the “pouring of libation as a form of prayer to ancestors; the use of proverbs in communication; the use of adinkra symbols as a form of communication and the tradition of  providing drinking water to welcome visitors in Ghana.” Another student from Ohio University who gave her name as Hannah stated that she was simply impressed with the passion that she observed during her interaction with AUCC journalism students with regard to their zeal to use journalism to contribute meaningfully to the development of Ghana upon completion of their education. It will be recalled that Ohio University signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Athens, Ohio, in August 2011 to seal the growing cordial relationship between the two universities.The Founder of AUCC, Hon. Kojo Yankah was also the guest of Ohio University in January 2013 when he delivered a series of lectures on media and politics.
