On June 11, 2014, Marywood University president, Sister Anne Munley, IHM and Professor John Ssebufu signed a memorandum of understanding with a goal to provide education for the Catholic Sisters in Uganda. Using the Blue Jeans conference call, both Sr. Anne and Prof. Ssebufu talked about the new partnership and their institution’s commitment towards providing quality education. It was an extraordinary opportunity given that MOU was signed via virtual means. This is a method that the sisters will learn to use that will enable them to engage with Marywood Univertsity faculty. This is only the beginning of greater things to come.
