The longstanding relationship President Colwick Wilson holds with Oakwood University (OU) has proved invaluable to USC’s department of Integrated Marketing & Communications (IMC).
During USC’s graduation activities for the Class of 2022, the IMC team greatly benefited from the assistance, expertise and training provided by Dr. Dwyane Cheddar. Dr. Dwyane Cheddar is the Director of the Oakwood University Broadcasting Network (OUBN), and an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at Oakwood University.
Coming out of this visit Dr. Cheddar has committed to work with USC to develop a certificate programme in media production to be offered in 2023.
As USC’s relationship with OU continues to grow, the IMC team has further benefited through the donation of media production equipment. Oakwood University has gifted computer and camera equipment valued at over USD$8,500. This invaluable contribution includes:
- 1 Mac Pro Computer
- 1 Canon XA55 Video Camera
Oakwood has changed out their video cameras at their campus and has confirmed a further contribution to IMC of additional seven video cameras they once used. These cameras are great condition and are currently being services in the US, after which they will be shipped to USC.
