Upcoming Events | Central University At Miotso Holds 7th Graduation

Mon, 03 Nov, 2008

The Central University College (CUC) in Miotso, at the weekend held its seventh congregation where 576 students were awarded first degrees.

Twelve students of the graduating class received awards for their excellent performance in the various fields of study with Elizabeth Apori-Obeng being recognized as the overall best student. She received a laptop valued at GHc 1,700.

Ms Doris Dzifa Dordoye, a physically challenged student received a special award for her perseverance and ability to complete her course in spite of her disability. She took home $300 and a certificate.

The occasion also climaxed activities marking the 10th anniversary celebration of the university.

In 1998, the university college was accredited by the National Accreditation Board (NAB), and 10 years down the line, its development has been phenomenal with the construction of a permanent campus in Miotso, near Dahwenya, with additional programmes in the Applied Science, graduate programmes in Business Administration and Theology.

In an address, the President of the University, Professor V.P. Gadzekpo, said that in the last 10 years, 3,000 students, 52 per cent of whom were female, and 48 per cent male, had graduated from the school.

He said although 10 years in the life of a school was short, the management of the university could say in all humility that it had contributed tremendously to the economy of the nation.

"We have created the opportunity for many who otherwise would not have had access to university education. Workers, who, by the nature of their jobs, cannot access university education can now do so. "They can now keep their jobs and at the same time access university education," he stated.

Looking into the future, Prof. Gadzekpo said the government's policy of meeting the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of ensuring that in 2015 all children of schoolage should be in school would have serious implications for the university's future expansion plans.

"We as a university must expand rapidly and position ourselves in readiness for such large number of students who will be seeking admission to the universities," Prof. Gadzekpo advised.

On the physical development of the university, Dr Gadzekpo said the first phase of the development programme of the Miotso campus had been completed as well as a 12-unit staff bungalow, three two-storey lecture halls and a four-storey science laboratory block.

He said that a students hostel had been completed and currently housed about 400 females.

"Within one year, we have managed to complete the conversion of the basement to a 400 seating capacity library, six 100 capacity lecture halls, common room for lecturers and offices," he stated.

The Chancellor of the university, Rev Dr Mensa Otabil, traced the history of the school and urged the students to abide by the principles upon which the school was established.

He urged them to be disciplined since that was the hallmark of success.
