Thursday, February 15th

Rutgers Global welcomed delegates Francis Dodoo, pro-vice chancellor of research and development, and Ama de-Graft Aikins, dean of international programs, from the University of Ghana, on Friday, February 16, 2018.

Dodoo—a former Penn State professor and director of study abroad programs to Ghana—and Aikins—a social psychologist who has led international research projects and mentored psychology, social policy, and public health graduate students across the globe—met with faculty and staff from across Rutgers to discuss areas for collaboration, student and scholarly exchange, and other potential exchange projects. In addition to Rutgers Global staff, faculty and administrators from the Center for African Studies, Douglass Residential College, the School of Nursing, the School of Health Professions, the School of Graduate Studies, New Jersey Medical School, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and University Hospital, School of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, and Rutgers–Camden College of Arts and Sciences joined in meetings with the delegates throughout the day.

Throughout the day, Rutgers Global led the delegation on tours of notable Rutgers–New Brunswick facilities, including the Center of Ocean Observing Leadership (RU COOL), the world’s most advanced coastal ocean observatory and advanced materials characterization facilities on Busch Campus.
