Dr Julius Che Tita,appointed as new HOD
A look at the iconography and symbology of DESIGN House demonstrates a clear and unequivocal commitment to the cause of social change.
Late Bate Bessong talks of the Lecturers Publishing house saying “Some DESIGN House books proffer a kaleidoscopic view of the Biya phenomenon and thereby offer a resume of the vision of a publisher who articulates commitment to the ennoblement of humanity. If as stated elsewhere, Julius Che Tita finally breaks the cocoon of political, tribalised mysticism and debilitation that often occludes collective myths and national historiography, by directing his alter-native (publishing) venture towards the dissemination of front-line books that aim at the reconstruction of the society along the path of peace, progress and true democracy, he will, I am convinced, achieve icon status”.
He has definitely attained the status and won his gold medal, as Head of Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, JMC, in the University of Buea.
Dr Che Tita holds an M.Phil, in publishing from the University of Stirling, Scotland and a BA in English & History from the University of Cardiff, Wales, a PhD. in Communication & Business from the University of Florida.
