Vice-Chancellor Inaugurates New Students' Support Centre

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, has inaugurated the Students' Support Centre of the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs at the North campus (New site).   The new office, which is on the second floor of the Amissah Arthur Language Centre, is an extension of the operations of the Main Dean of Student Affairs office  at the South campus (Old site) to serve  students at the North campus.   The office has Students' Accommodation and Counseling Desk, Financial Aid/Persons with Disability Desk, and Students' Leadership, Governance and Training Desk.   Inaugurating the facility, Prof. Ampiah encouraged students to patronise the services of the office and discard the erroneous perception  that any one who  patronized the services of the centre was in great financial difficulty. "The fact that students come here doesn't mean they are in great difficult. When we say students' Support , people think otherwise", he said, and appealed to the student populace to think more positive towards the Centre.   The Vice-Chancellor was of the firm belief that the Centre would equally be vibrant like the Main office at the old site. He expressed gratitude to the authorities at the College of Humanities and Legal Studies for allocating the office space to the Office of the Dean of Students' Affairs to expand its operations. He asked the staff of the Centre to take proper care of the equipment at the Centre and use them for their intended purposes.   For his part, the Dean of Students, Prof. Koawo Edjah, advised students to find the services of the Center valuable and urged them to feel free at all times to visit the Centre. He said with time, the office of the Dean of Students  would get a bigger Center to meet  the needs of all students.     The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. George K.T Oduro, the Registrar,Mr. John Kofi Nyan and other dignitaries were present at the inauguration.
