SCAE EYES ULK PARTNERSHIP
Today, November 30th 2016, a delegation from Specialty Coffee Association of Europe, SCAE, visited ULK Kigali Campus and expressed their burning desire of partnering with ULK in a number of activities.
The delegation was led by Mr. David Veal, the Executive Director in SCAE. Upon their arrival at the campus, they were welcomed by Dr. Ezekiel SEKIBIBI, ULK Vice Chancellor who was with Dr. Okoko Osambo, Deputy Vice Chancellor Academics and Daniel Balinda, lecturer at Kigali Independent University.
Before disclosing the purpose of their visit, they were given background information on what Kigali Independent University ULK is all about, its creation, mission, motto, values and principles and the vision it aspires to embrace. Such information on ULK roadmap was given by the three officials who represented the university in the session.
In their interactions, the visitors disclosed the purpose of their visit and said that they came to seek partnership with ULK after having seen the progress the university has made and the strides it keeps registering in the area of academics.
As they said, there are many areas to put emphasis on but what interests them most is partnering in the area of food processing whereby they will be coaching ULK students on how to process a variety of food.
Both sides agreed that partnering with other people brings new experience and contributes to the progress and reputation of a company. To this, the days ahead will determine whether both institutions are to pen the desired partnership for effective implementation of the proposed project.
Pleased with their fruitful interactions, they finally took a group photo and that marked the end of their interactions.
