Robert Greene of Medina, Ohio travels to Ashesi, Ghana for ETHOS graduate research.
The ETHOS Center (Engineers in Technical Humanitarian Opportunities of Service-learning) at the University of Dayton seeks to provide service-learning experiences through technical immersions, student activities, research and hands-on projects. Through these experiences, students have gained perspectives on how engineering and technology are influenced by the world. Participating students have been able to use their engineering skills for humanitarian purposes, serving others through practical engineering knowledge. Our alumni learn about the world, different cultures and themselves.
Greene spent the summer of 2018 at Ashesi University, a private, liberal arts college offering 4-year bachelor programs and establishing its reputation as a leader in undergraduate education in Africa. Ghana Climate Innovation Center, based at Ashesi University's campus, supports entrepreneurs building climate change solutions for Ghana's green economy. Funded through a grant from the World Bank Group and partners, GCIC is a green project incubation hub where entrepreneurs and startup ventures can access support to develop their innovative ideas into strong and viable businesses. Their thematic areas include energy efficiency, water and sanitation, and climate smart agriculture.
