First Attempt to Compile Faculty Directory Came to Fruition

The Center for Capacity Building Programs releases a faculty directory consisting of the basic profile of about 300 faculty members of Bahir Dar University. A faculty information collection form was dispatched in 2008 E.C. asking each faculty members' educational background, teaching experience, publication history, research interest, and contact information. An elecctronic version of a "yelow page" of the faculty members who submitted their information was prepared this year. The information is meant to be used by anyone in the campus. Although far from complete, the Center beleives that the availability of such information will facilitate communication among different academic units and managerial positions in the University. The directory will be updated each year with recent information, and a print copy will be released in a couple of weeks to top and middle level leadership offices of the university.
