Progressing in academia with Academics without Borders
MUST hosted the Associate Executive Director of Academics Without Borders(AWB) Ms. Young Corrie on 6th February 2020. AWB aims at supporting universities to train their own experts and conduct research to assist in their countries’ development. They offer volunteers who devote time and energy to work closely with host institutions to address challenges identified. The visit provided a platform to discuss ways of getting volunteer professionals from AWB to support MUST in specific areas of interest in teaching, research and administration. The opportunity to utilize such experts in the different areas of need was welcomed by the leadership of the university. Ms. Corrie Young visited with Prof. Noni Macdonald a Board member of AWB and a Professor at Dalhousie University.
