Thee collaboration between the Office of the Vice-Chancellor and the Centre for Communication Studies (CCS) of The University of Guyana brings to you this third edition of Renaissance, a monthly newsletter. Renaissance is the Vice-Chancellor’s medium of sharing with you our University’s developments. 

In this edition of Renaissance, we hope you feel as proud of our graduates’ and lecturers’ achievements as we do. The University of Guyana (UG) participated in this year’s 13th Annual CANQATE Conference, which consisted of three days of seminars, panel discussions, and cultural activities. The conference covered a wide spectrum of quality assurance matters related to the issues of sustainability and development in the Caribbean region. 

Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Dr Emanuel Cummings, and Medical Director, Dr Ronald Aaron, participated in the Beyond Flexner Conference in Miami, Florida. Equally impressive is Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Mr Calvin Bernard’s participation in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Johannesburg, South Africa. 

As Guyana celebrates its 50th year of Independence, it is quite fitting the country’s most prestigious, tertiary institution celebrates its 50th Anniversary Convocation exercise. This year’s graduation exercise is scheduled to be very special, with the feature address being delivered by Dr Vincent Adams, Guyanese born, engineering giant working in the US Department of Energy. 

All these stories and more are creations of our CCS student interns attached to the publication. CCS is involved in training students in the art of print, radio, television and online journalism; public relations; communication research, and consultancy.

Renaissance Vol. 1 No. 1

29th August, 2016 0 comments

The Office of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Guyana (UG) is pleased to share with you this first edition of Renaissance, a monthly publication that captures various facets of development surrounding the nation’s premier tertiary institution. 

In this edition we bring you retrospective and progressive perspectives from national and international contributors who are all alums and friends of UG. 

Renaissance takes you on a journey with footprints of the road travelled, pebbles picked up along the smooth but sometimes tumultuous terrain, and visions yet to be realised as we move through unchartered waters. Under new captaincy, the ship, UG, has set its sails steadily, resolutely, toward an onward, upward journey. 

For our next edition we invite you to submit news items, short articles, poems and high resolution pictures of activities related to the national agenda and consistent with the development trajectory of UG. Share with us how UG has contributed to building industry and livelihoods for citizens both at home and abroad. 

Our email address is vicechancellor@uog.edu.gy. Do share Renaissance with at least ten of your friends and send us their email contacts to facilitate direct mailing of future editions. We thank you for being part of this transformative initiative. 

Read, reflect and be inspired to join in the Renaissance
