Paul Kagame, president of Rwanda, spoke at Tufts about his country’s painful past and hopeful future. In introducing Kagame to the Tufts audience, President Anthony P. Monaco noted that the university is directly involved with Rwanda in a number of ways. The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at the School of Medicine have assisted Rwanda’s veterinary and public health schools with curriculum and faculty development and technology support. The Cummings School has also been engaged in Rwanda through its international veterinary medicine program, supporting the creation of an ambulatory veterinary clinic at the University of Rwanda-Nayagatare, with assistance from Cummings Foundation.
