Despite the restrictions imposed by the global pandemic, two Lincoln University students and one professor participated in the inaugural Lions in Ghana program, under the auspices of Lincoln’s Office of International Programs, during June and July 2021. Students Romika-Grace Volcy and Chamir James served as the university’s first Lions in Ghana Fellows, while Dr. Gervais Gnaka Lagoke served as the program’s Scholar-in-Residence. Lions in Ghana provides the opportunity for Lincoln students to engage in a summer action research fellowship through a virtual platform, in partnership with universities in Pennsylvania and northern Ghana. Using funds from the IDEAS grant from the US Department of State enabled Lincoln to avoid risks of COVID exposure and instead to continue to provide global engagement experiences for students.
