News 2021-2022 Academic Year
In the midst of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic the James M. Cox Jr. Center for International Mass Communication Training and Research began its work in creating one of the three courses for the African Civic Engagement Academy (ACEA). The project was sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) program. It began in early 2020 and went live in September of 2021.
"We have all learned from the pandemic period that online education is a valuable tool, but we also need to remember that some of our most successful joint projects have come from in-person visits and workshops," Dr. Tudor Vlad, director of the James M. Cox Jr. Center for International Mass Communication Training and Research, told the professors and researchers of the College of Political, Administrative and Communication Studies (FSPAC) at Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, in August 2021.
