The newly elected executives of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) have on Wednesday July 20,2022 called on the Chancellor of Wisconsin International University College, Ghana, Dr Paul Kofi Fynn at the Accra campus of the university located at North Legon.
The GJA led by its President Mr. Albert Kwabena Dwumfour after a tour of facilities at the university commended the Chancellor for his exemplary leadership in steering the affairs of the University over the past 22years. Mr. Dwumfour applauded the Chancellor and Management of the university for the role Wisconsin has played and continues to play in the training of a quality workforce for Ghana and the Sub-region through its practical training model.
The President of the GJA, Mr. Dwumfuor welcomed the Chancellor’s proposal to help develop the capacity of journalists in the country who are members of the Association through scholarship and discount packages with support from the Wisconsin’s School of Communications Studies.
The Chancellor Dr. Paul Fynn who also happens to be a member of the GJA, on his part thanked the Executives for their visit and assured them that Wisconsin International University College is more than ready to assist the body and its members in building in any way to make them more vibrant in exercising their constitutional mandate.
Dr. Fynn also used the opportunity to encourage the newly elected executives to advocate and promote public/private partnership in the
country as a tool for solving the unemployment situation among the youth since government alone cannot employ everyone.
He also added that such partnerships can improve the quality of teaching at all levels while citing examples with nursing graduates of Wisconsin. “So many of our students who have passed out of the School of Nursing and Midwifery have created a
lot of avenues to employ themselves like home care services and many others” he said.
The tour by the executives made up of the President, the Financial Controller, the General Secretary, Organising Secretary and the Public
Affairs secretary took them to the state-of-the-art Nursing Skills Laboratory, Broadcasting studio, newly developed Neuro Diagnostic Center, the library, the ICT Laboratory, the Music school and the Law Moot Court.
