The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. George K. T. Oduro has urged staff of the College of Distance Education who are on study leave at Kenyatta University, Kenya to make UCC proud by distinguishing themselves in their academic work.
He noted that they were offered scholarships to upgrade themselves in order to contribute meaningfully towards achieving the mandate of the UCC.
The Pro-Vice-Chancellor made these statements when he took time off his British Council engagement in Nairobi to interact with five staff of the University studying in Kenya. The staff he interacted with were Mr. Emmanuel Arthur-Nyarko, Mr. Gabriel Essilfie, Ms. Beatrice Asante Somuah, Ms. Vera Arhin and Mr. Samuel Ampofo.
Prof. Oduro expressed management’s commitment to supporting them complete their studies successfully. He advised them to make judicious use of their time while studying in Kenya reminding them that “in spite of challenges associated with your study in Kenya, you should remember that your ultimate goal is to acquire knowledge to support teaching and learning in the University of Cape Coast.”
The staff thanked the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the interaction and promised to live up to expectation. ‘’We’re poised to justify the confidence UCC has reposed in us by excelling in our studies”, one staff assured the Prof. Oduro.
