The School of Media and Communication (SMC), Pan-Atlantic University, has been nominated to host the 20th Annual Conference/AGM of the African Council for Communication Education (ACCE).
The theme of the conference is Communication, Migration and Inclusiveness. The conference, which is tagged “PAU 2018”, will take place from the 23rd to the 26th of October and will bring together scholars, researchers and other stakeholders in the communication value chain. It will hold at the Lagos Business School, Pan-Atlantic University, Lekki Campus.
The goal of the conference is to address the various challenges associated with migration, fueled by economic, political or social reasons, and internal displacements caused by terrorism and other socio-political factors. With this focus, the African Council for Communication Education (ACCE) seeks to explore the role of communication in highlighting and resolving some of the attendant challenges. It is hoped that the conference, among other things, will make an important contribution towards the formulation of policy as well as promote research in this area.
Over 350 members of the ACCE (from more 80 institutions) from within and outside the country are expected to attend the conference. SMC is happy to be associated with ACCE since its goal is the formation of highly qualified media and communication professionals who will provide quality service to the nation.
ACCE is the biggest association and forum for media entrepreneurs, professionals, educators in journalism and associated disciplines in Africa. It has branches in many countries on the continent and its headquarters is domiciled in Nairobi, Kenya.
