NTU Psychology staff donate over 500 books to the University of Jos following library fire

NTU Psychology members donated 540 books to the University of Jos in Nigeria, following a fire outbreak that consumed their library in 2016.

Donated books received joined appreciation from the Uni-Jos Vice-Chancellor and the Psychology Head of Department in a written acknowledgement:

"On behalf of the Vice Chancellor, University of Jos; the Dean, Faculty of Social Science; the Head of Department, staff and students of the Department of General and Applied Psychology, I write to acknowledge receipt of 540 Psychology textbooks/journals and express our profound appreciation to you and members of staff of your department of psychology, for not only donating these books/journals but also helping in offsetting the shipping bill. These books/journals are already in our departmental library and will be put to use by both staff and students in the department and faculty..."

The Project Lead, Dr Dung Jidong who is an NTU Psychology Lecturer and Internationalisation Officer (West Africa) added: "I'm honoured and privileged to be part of this project that aims at ensuring available learning and teaching materials for students/staff at the University of Jos Nigeria. I look forward to hearing success-testimonies of academic excellence from the beneficiaries of these textbooks/journals".
