Dr. Jasmine Renner Headed to LivingStone Intl University - Receives 2015 Carnegie Fellowship Award
By: Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship (IIE)
LivingStone International University has recently established an Academic Research and Analysis Center as a means of encouraging faculty to conduct and disseminate original research. This project would develop proposals for how the LIU library, faculty, and students can take better advantage of digital resources, both in-house and online. Dr. Renner would provide training for faculty, as needed, in quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, in both formal and informal settings and would collaborate with LIU administration and faculty in formulating surveys, interviews or other instruments to carry out the evaluation of their Kindle implementation.
LivingStone International University’s project is one of 59 projects that will pair African Diaspora scholars with higher education institutions in Africa to collaborate on curriculum co-development, research, graduate teaching, training and mentoring activities.
The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (ADF) is funded by a two-year grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY), to support short-term faculty fellowships for African-born academics. Managed and administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in partnership with Quinnipiac University (QU), the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program is a scholar fellowship program for educational projects at African higher education institutions. The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program exemplifies Carnegie Corporation of New York's (CCNY's) enduring commitment to higher education in Africa.

Congratulations to Dr. Jasmine Renner of East Tennessee State University and to the host university, LivingStone International University, Mbale, Uganda.
Sharon Witherell Director, Public Affairs IIE.
