COLLABORATION OF SCHOOLS AND PIASS KARONGI CAMPUS

As a reference University, Protestant Institute of Arts and Social Sciences (PIASS) had been working hard in fostering knowledge development and innovative research that are relevant for the society and inspired by Christian ethics and values. To achieve this, strengthening partnership and networking with different organizations (public and private), NGOs as well as schools has been the priority of this University

In this regard, on Wednesday November 24, 2021 at Karongi Campus headquarters located in the Western Province, Karongi District, PIASS held a meeting with school leaders/ (Head Teachers and Deputy Head Teachers) from 10 schools located in Karongi and Rutsiro districts. The meeting was chaired by the Campus Coordinator Dr. SIBOMANA Innocent. The general objective was to establish long term collaboration for the development of education on both sides; PIASS, Karongi Campus and the surrounding schools.

After a fruitful discussion, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between PIASS, Karongi Campus and school leaders was signed. Under this agreements, both parties committed to:

  • Strengthening capacities of the staff through trainings, field visits, study tours, conferences and research disseminations applied to education.
  • Promoting regular teaching practices and internship for PIASS students so that they can get field expertise in teaching and learning process, research and other education related fields.
  • Enhancing the capacities of PIASS student-teachers to be familiar with research applied to education, field experiments, data collection and analysis to enable students to be creative and competitive for further performance in education This event was a milestone for a wide plan to expand the collaboration between PIASS and as many schools and organizations as possible so that in the near future PIASS students will not be any more worried about internships and other research related activities.
