School Of Communications Studies Library Receives Support

The School of Communications Studies, University of Ghana, Legon has received some of the latest edition of books on Communication and Media to enhance their library. The books have been donated by the renowned Public Relations Students Society of America (PRSA) at the James Madison University, Virginia, USA. The benevolent gesture towards the school and its education is a continuing exercise and has been facilitated by Executive Chairman of Global Media Alliance (GMA), Mr. Edward Boateng and the PRSA. The books range from first-rate communications literature including Public Relations, Advertising, Telecommunications and Journalism. There were also books on management which will go a long way to equip students with media management skills and leadership skills in other related areas. This adds to the various corporate social responsibility initiatives by Global Media Alliance, a pan-African communications company towards the School of Communication Studies. GMA has previously donated some books to the school and has always granted graduating students internship opportunities as well as employment opportunities. Mr. Edward Boateng has also been involved in mentoring programmes where he shares with students his experiences and zest for life and career. Donating the books on behalf of GMA and the Madison University, Corporate Communications Manager of Global Media Alliance, Ms. Brooke Nuwati says GMA is committed to promoting communication excellence in Ghana and on the African continent and therefore will not miss any opportunities or efforts that are geared towards the realization of such a dream. “Being a communication outfit ourselves, we know the true value of effective communications and its role in national development. We are always happy to contribute our quota to promote excellence in this all important field of communication. We hope students will benefit immensely from these books” she says. Thanking the PRSA and GMA, Ms. Audrey Gadzekpo, Acting Director of the School says the school is grateful for the support it continues to receive from Global Media Alliance. She says students benefit greatly from the books and the other learning materials that GMA has provided in the past, because the materials are always carefully selected by someone who is a celebrated thought leader in the industry. She also adds that the school will continue counting on GMA’s support for materials such as a collection of the stories that make it for the CNN MultiChoice African Journalist of the year awards since students pick a lot of lessons and techniques as well as inspiration to come up with good journalistic stories and reports.
