| November 26, 2013

A Voice of America feature on the new campus in Accra, Ghana, will air throughout the continent.

Recent news media coverage involving Webster University includes a big story on the new campus in Accra, Ghana, which is to air throughout the continent:

Voice of America highlights the new campus with interviews of Webster President Beth Stroble, Provost Julian Schuster, and Ghana campus director Tom Oates and staff member (and Ghanaian Webster graduate) Victoria Dela Adeborna:

Stroble, in an interview with Africa 54 says that opening the Ghanaian campus creates new opportunities for students, faculty, as well as businesses.  Dr. Stroble says she is excited about this new initiative.

“Ghana is such a leader already in the world arena, and certainly in sub-Saharan Africa and the continent of Africa.  And if we wish for students to know the world, it’s important to know Ghana because of its political leadership, its economic leadership, the leadership that Ghana is positioned to provide for a better world.”

The story and excerpts of the interviews will air on Africa 54, VOA’s TV/cable/satellite news program distributed throughout all 54 countries in Africa, as well as on Straight Talk Africa, a weekly simulcast (radio, TV and Internet) program distributed continent-wide.

A write-up of the story will also be posted to VOA’s English to Africa online news portal. Read the write-up at producer/reporter Paul Ndiho’s site here.
