Diana Benoit joined UniSey in 2014 as a Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator in the Marketing Department.
Diana brought to UniSey a wide range of skills in PR and Communication but she also worked closely with the IT Department since she was responsible for the maintenance of the UniSey website. Her undergraduate education was at the Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Western Australia, where she obtained a double-degree in Communications and Cultural Studies; Media and Information.
In 2016, she was awarded a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) from UniSey in collaboration with the Eastern and Southern African Management Institute (ESAMI). Diana decided to use the skills and knowledge gained from her Masters to undertake a new challenge within UniSey. Therefore, she decided to work closely with Professor Dennis Hardy and the late Sir James Mancham in setting up of a new Peace and Diplomacy Research Institute at UniSey.
In June 2019, Diana was appointed the Project Manager of the Peace Institute and she also served at the Secretary of the Institute’s Steering Committee. Her hard work and determination got her promoted to Director of the Peace Institute in December 2017.
In September 2018, Diana decided to take on a new challenge which will further help promote the national university. With her IT background, especially as a website designer, Diana accepted the new role of webmaster and website content editor for the new UniSey website. She is now working closely with the Faculties and Departments to develop a new website for the University of Seychelles.
