A team of senior leadership members from the University of Dodoma (UDOM) visited Ohio State from June 13 -16. The visit was aimed at strengthening the relationship between OSU and UDOM as well as advancing collaborative efforts between the two institutions. The trip was a follow-up to the visit by the GWI team in April.

While at Ohio State the team, led by Professor Shabaan Mlacha, outgoing vice-chancellor for planning, finance and administration, held meetings with the GWI staff, affiliated faculty as well as Ohio State leadership.

By the end of the meetings the delegates and GWI team identified several areas for  collaboration including:

  • Remote education (course sharing, alternating lecture series):
  • Exchange programs for students and faculty:
  • Collaborative research

The UDOM delegates also had a chance to visit the Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory , enCORE solar house and the Food Science and Technology Facilities.
