Efforts aimed at enhancing productivity and raising staff morale received a major boost as the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) engaged its senior personnel on ways of effectively discharging the core mandate of the School. The workshop mainly focused on effective techniques for documenting admission and graduation processes for Graduate Students in line with extant policies of the University.

Dean of the School, Professor Regina Ogali, who spoke on the theme of the workshop: Promoting a Effective Process of Graduate Admission and Graduation and Graduation Of Students, stated: “The emphasis on admission and graduation of our students is a way of indicating that these two roles are very important aspects of running graduate programmers’; they depict the input and output components of all graduate programmers’ in line with global best practice.”

The Dean listed the job schedules of each of the Units which included documentation, admission and registration offices, and cautioning staff of the School against unethical practices that could tarnish its hard earned reputation.

“It has been observed that some staff in a bid to ‘assist’ students, have compromised their work ethics in the process. All staff are, therefore, enjoined to concentrate on their approved job schedules and stop meddling in the unacceptable practice of rendering unsolicited help to graduate students, who are supposed to pay their school fees and other charges at designated banks,” the Dean said.

“If everyone of us complies with the Total Quality Management principle of ‘doing the right thing right at the very first time and at the right time,’ there would be remarkable reduction in loss of man-hour which hitherto has been expended on correction of avoidable errors, duplication of tasks, unnecessary documentary document vetting by staff, other than those who have initiated or certified completed jobs, including delays in completing tasks, amongst others,” the Dean emphasized, charging staff to show better commitment to duty.

In their separate presentations, immediate past Graduate Studies Officer and now Director of Academic Affairs, Dr. Agatha Ataga, gave a brief overview of Graduate programmes, while Junior Staff Officer, Mrs. Elizabeth Ndiokho, presented a paper on Work Ethics and Workers’ Attitude to work.

The workshop also featured an interactive session on the challenges, expectations, and way forward. A major highlight of the workshop
