As part of the annual scheduled meetings for Faculties, the Division of Human Resource has held series of engagements with Faculties in the University of Education, Winneba. The meetings which commenced from July 21, 2016 would end in August 17, 2016 are to engage faculty on 10 things that faculty needs to know about the University of Education, Winneba.

The Deputy Registrar, Division of Human Resource, Mrs. Christie Okae-Anti and the Senior Assistant Registrar, Mr. Robert Tetteh Mensah, took participants through UEW Culture and Characteristics, Policies, Evaluation/Expectations, Promotion, Contract Renewal, Regulations Related to Instruction, Support: Staff Development; Library & Computer services; ID Cards; Budget & Funding, Communication, Logistics (Transport; Clinic), and Retirement.

The presenters noted amongst many other things the need for faculty to seek information on issues that concerns their professional development and the work they do in the University. They advised faculty to work with Faculty officers, who were representatives of the Registrar at the faculty level on human resource and policy related matters. With regards to taking Leaves, Mrs. Okae-Anti advised that Annual Leave especially was important since it served as a form of de-stressing and so needed to be taken so long as it was possible.

Speaking on Study leaves, she reiterated on the fact that while on study leave, it was required for lecturers to submit Progress Reports since it informed the University especially the Vice-Chancellor on any progress of the lecturer. The Deputy Registrar further touched on other areas, including; Job of the Academic Senior Member, Confirmation of Appointment, Retirement, Sabbatical Leave and the Role of the Appointments and Promotion Board, Support and Communication. She indicated that Communication was a very important factor especially with regards to letters. All letters needed to be routed through the Head of Department and the Dean. Letters should not be written straight to the Vice- Chancellor but channeled through the right procedure since when done otherwise yield no results.

The workshop ended successfully amidst a series of questions, suggestions and jovial banters. The meeting brought together Deans of Faculty, Heads of Department, Professors, Associate Professors, Senior Lecturers and Lecturers from the Faculties to be engaged on issues relevant to their stay in the University.
