Kent State University faculty traveled to Abuja, along with Tara Stafford of Columbia University to work with AUN Faculty and Nigeria Educational Officials. This was the first major step in the Strengthening Education in Northeast Nigeria (SENSE) Activity, as the team assembled in Abuja to define survey tools and the capacity audit as the initial grant work has begun.
The team was in Nigeria from June 26th until July 2nd, 2019. Their journey was long, but very productive and allowed for the researchers to not only work together, but to also visit the Ministry of Education and a local primary school.
