“He is the best teacher I have had at this university,” a student wrote last January in the evaluation of Zenebe Beyene.
Zenebe is the assistant dean at the School of Journalism and Communication at Addis Ababa University and a doctoral candidate at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He taught JOUR 400 International Communication during January Intersession at Ole Miss.
Thus, it was exciting to be invited to dinner by Zenebe’s family when I was in Addis last week. I had traveled to Ethiopia from Dubai to try to finalize the partnership agreement between Addis Ababa University and the School of Journalism and New Media at The University of Mississippi.
