Nwauwa named Carnegie African Diaspora Fellow | Join the NIOT Peace March Nov. 18


Dr. Apollos O. Nwauwa
Dr. Apollos O. Nwauwa will help develop graduate curriculum for master's and doctoral programs in historical studies at a university in Ghana through the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program.

Nwauwa, a history faculty member who has also served as director of the Africana Studies program, was one of 70 African Diaspora scholars awarded fellowships to travel to Africa to conduct a wide range of projects across disciplines. He will go to Ghana next summer to work with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and Dr. George Bob-Milliar, chair of the KNUST history and political science department.

The department, eager to launch its graduate program soon, will look to Nwauwa for assistance in building a quality program. His extensive international experience in teaching, research and graduate supervision will provide leadership and ideas to organize faculty focus groups and seminars to brainstorm suitable graduate curriculum for the university. Working with Bob-Milliar and other KNUST colleagues, Nwauwa will facilitate recommendations about access to valuable online instructional and research resources and provide guidance to ensure that the graduate program is attuned to the disciplinary practices in the global context. The immediate outcomes will be a complete draft of a new, suitable graduate curriculum in historical studies at KNUST that is aligned to the standard practices in the field.
