Carleton University - National University
of Rwanda Journalism Teaching Partnership
Carleton University’s School of Journalism
and Communication, Canada’s premier journalism school,
is spearheading this initiative to collaborate with its counterpart
at the National University of Rwanda (NUR), in Butare.
The central aim is to address the shortage of
journalism educators in Rwanda, to build capacity, to improve
journalism standards in the country and to forge a partnership
between the two universities.
In addition to providing the School of Journalism
and Communication in Butare with consistent access to visiting
teachers, the project has a major curriculum development and
exchange component and also includes media-training workshops
in Rwanda for working journalists, jointly organized by Carleton
