Our differences do matter, but our common humanity matters more.” It is in this framework that a delegation from Darussalam University operating in Somalia visited ULK Gisenyi Campus today the 16th March 2016.
The delegation was made up of two personalities; the president and founder of the aforementioned university, Dr Osman Mohamed Hassan who was accompanied by the university Public Relations Officer.
To their delight, their visit coincided with the presence of the founder and president of Kigali Independent University ULK, Prof. Dr Rwigamba Balinda, who has been on the campus imparting knowledge to first year students through his module dubbed, “Ethics and Rwandan Civic Education”.
Upon their arrival, the founder and president of ULK called a meeting that brought together ULK Gisenyi campus senior managers and the visitors. Their interactions were mainly centered on cementing ties between both institutions of higher learning. Indeed, this gladdened both sides as such partnership will enable them to open new academic horizons, exchanging information on various issues, to mention but a few.
In a bid for the delegation to have a general view of the campus, they were shown around different places; computer lab, offices and lecture rooms. Along the tour, the delegation marveled at how the campus is organized.
Above all, Dr Munyamasoko Cyeze Emmanuel, DVC Academics introduced the visitors to students who were in the middle of learning. This provided them an opportunity to interact with the students and brief them to aspire higher.
Speaking on behalf of the delegation, the Public Relations Officer said, “It’s a great privilege for you to be pursuing university studies in such a well-reputed institution. You should therefore ascertain you aim high and work earnestly for your dreams to come true (…)”
At the end of the tour, ULK senior managers thanked the delegation for their visit and pledged to do everything possible to strengthen the relationships between both intuitions. Shortly after, the delegation bade ULK officials farewell and went back.
