UNL Students Unveil African Communication Study


OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb. - University of Nebraska students participating in the inaugural U.S. Strategic Command-sponsored Global Innovation and Strategy Center internship program will present results of a study designed to identify means of disseminating credible information to the Pan Sahel region of Africa. The presentation will take place April 26 from 10-11 a.m. at the GISC facility, located at 6805 Pine St.

The event will feature results of the four-month intern project, which emphasized strategies to effectively communicate with audiences in the Sahel region of Africa, specifically the countries of Mauritania, Mali, Niger andChad.

The GISC's internship program builds multi-disciplinary teams of exceptional graduate and undergraduate students to present an unclassified, non-military perspective on Department of Defense problem sets and issues. Each project lasts for one-semester, approximately four months. The current Intern Team is composed of six students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
