kimemiaThe Department of Political Science would like to congratulate our very own Douglas Kimemia, Ph.D., for being accepted as a VCU Globe Faculty Fellow through the university’s Global Education Office.

VCU Globe Faculty Fellows interact with VCU Globe staff and students as instructors of a VCU Globe seminar. These seminars are intended to develop students’ abilities to navigate cultural and personal borders, with particular reference to professional goals and plans; expose students to a wide range of individuals and groups of people, providing them direct and meaningful contact with worldviews and experiences different from their own; and foster awareness of the skills required of a global citizen within relevant professional fields.

Kimemia’s seminar will cover the Politics and Conflicts in Africa.

In addition to the Globe fellowship, Kimemia was named a recipient of VCU’s Black History in the Making Award for his initiative crafting a once-in-a-lifetime experiential learning study abroad course on African politics.
