The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. George K. T. Oduro has called on members of the National Executive Council of University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) to complement management’s effort to enhance the reputation of the Universities of Ghana both locally and internationally.
Prof. Oduro made the call when members of the national executive council of the UTAG paid a courtesy call on him as part of their second quarter meeting at the University of Cape Coast. He entreated UTAG to espouse the ideals of the University and not be confrontational in their relationship with management. “Whilst you seek the welfare of UTAG members, you need to also show interest in our primary responsibility of disseminating knowledge through teaching and research,” he added. He, therefore, urged them to contribute towards creating an enabling environment for teaching, learning and research in their respective campuses. He wished them well in their deliberations.
On behalf of the delegation, Dr. Henry L. K. Agbanu thanked the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for granting them an audience. He gave the assurance that UTAG would continue to partner management to raise the image of universities in Ghana to meet international standards. He further indicated that they were ever prepared to engage in dialogue with management on issues bothering on their welfare and conditions of service.
Dr. Agbanu was accompanied by UCC Chapter of UTAG executives and their president, Prof. Kwame O. Kwarteng and other executives from public universities in the country.
