Alabama A&M Students Travel to Ghana
A group of students from Alabama A&M University’s College of Agriculture, Life and Natural Sciences (COALNS) and the College of Business and Public Affairs (COBPA) are visiting the University of Ghana as part of a international learning initiative. The trips is sponsored by the US Department of Agriculture.
The overall objective is to provide opportunities for AAMU students to increase their awareness and to deepen their understanding as they prepare for future employment in a knowledge-based global economy.
During the trip to Ghana, the students had an opportunity to visit Cape Coast Castle (known for the trans-Atlantic slave trade), said Dr. James O. Bukenya, AAMU professor of resource economics. The Castle and Museum are among the historical places that President Obama visited on his first trip to Africa.
