Dr. Tutu Awarded Visiting Professorship Fellowship
With support from Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) has awarded Dr. Raymond Tutu a Visiting Professorship Fellowship this summer.
Dr. Tutu will spend time at Kampala International University, where he will establish research collaboration, co-mentor students, and participate in curriculum review. Also, in line with Delaware State University’s quest to build strong international partnerships, Dr. Tutu will explore other possible areas of mutual interest between the universities.
In her letter of support for Dr. Tutu regarding the fellowship, College of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences Dean Francine Edwards wrote: “Dr. Raymond Tutu has also demonstrated distinction and significant accomplishments in collaborative research endeavors. … As a mentor, Dr. Raymond Tutu is par excellence; through active service on the committees of doctoral and masters’ students, his praises are sung continually. He has been the research advisor of numerous Honors students at Delaware State University, and his students have consistently presented their research during the annual Honors Day Presentations/Delaware State University Research Day. … He is at the forefront of our digitization program on campus.”
