We will continue to engage best brains- Bowen University VC…
The Vice-Chancellor of Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, Prof Joshua Ogunwole, has said that the institution would continue to engage best brains for the provision of qualitative and competitive education.
Prof Ogunwole said that the university is on the lookout for best brains and talents to engage, stimulate and motivate students, as part of its strategic repositioning.
He also added that the faculties in the institution could compete favourably with their peers all over the world.
Speaking at the inauguration of new principal officers hosted by the institution’s Chancellor, Dr. Michael Abodunrin, the vice chancellor stated that new appointments are meant to bring on board, a culture of discipline that de-emphasizes hierarchy. Thus, further strengthening teamwork and excellent spirit within the system.
Ogunwole said it was in that light that the university appointed Prof Oluwatosin Atobatele as Deputy Vice Chancellor, Mr. Babatunde Adetona as Registrar and Mrs. Aderonke Otunla as university Librarian.
“We are taking bold moves to ensure that we retain the best brains and to continually attract them. With this and many more creative initiatives, Bowen is calculated to be a choice institution where those who had hitherto embarked on or found attraction in academic tourism to western countries would see the institution as an unrivalled option.
“Before COVID-19 pandemic swept the world, Bowen University had launched the Smart School Hub (SsHUB) to effectively engage students in productive academic activities anywhere they are. It was therefore easy to transit to online lecture delivery despite all odds; and while the pandemic and lockdown lasted, the institution was in session with continuous assessment and examination for university-wide courses effectively administered.
“Currently, further plans are ongoing to engage the best academics all over the world. We are already interacting with academics in the diaspora with demonstrable competence in online teaching. These and many more are some of the deliberate strategies put in place to attract world-class scholars and other categories of personnel.” the VC expressed.
In a short exhortation by Rev Dickson Madoghwe, whose charge was themed: “Turning life opportunities to profitable ventures”, he urged the new officers to leverage the appointment to serve God and humanity profitably.
Speaking on behalf of the other newly appointed principal officers, the University Librarian promised not to disappoint the management. He also assured that they would cooperate with others to take the institution to the next level.
