Graduands Urged to Market Programmes of UCC

The Provost of the College of Distance Education (CoDE), Prof. Isaac Galyuon, has urged graduands of the College to market the academic programmes run by the University of Cape Coast (UCC). “If the programme will be marketed, you are our marketers. It’s your responsibility as an alumnus to market the University”, he said. Prof. Galyuon made these statements at a reception held for graduands of the College who had completed various Master’s degree in the University through the distance mode. In all, 961 graduands from CoDE graduated with Master of Arts, Master of Education and Master of Business Administration degrees. The Provost called on the graduands to collaborate with the authorities of the College so as to develop the programmes run by the College in order to attract more students. He used the occasion to announce the procurement of e-learning materials by the College to facilitate teaching and learning at all its approved study centres. Prof. Galyuon charged them to be good ambassadors of the University so as to consolidate the enviable image of the University. The Head of Department of Business Studies at CoDE, Dr. Anokye Mohammed Adam, reminded the graduands that they had acquired the requisite practical and theoretical knowledge to build on their capacities. He, therefore, urged them to use the knowledge gained from their studies to impact positively at their respective organisations. The graduands, for their part, thanked the College for giving them the opportunity to upgrade themselves academically and assured the Provost that they would be good ambassadors of the University wherever they found themselves. Present at the function were the Head of Department of Science and Mathematics Education, Prof. John Nelson Buah; the Head of Department of Education Studies, Prof. Emmanuel K. Gyimah and the Ag. College Registrar, Mr. Opoku Oku Afari.
