The Dean of Faculty of Educational Studies (FES), Prof. Samuel Hayford on Friday, 8th November, 2019 held a breakfast meeting with PhD students of the Faculty to brief them on strategies and techniques to enable them complete their programmes successfully and on time.

The meeting, which took place at the North Campus, was attended by PhD students offering Educational Administration and Management, Guidance and Counselling and Special Education.   

Ag. Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. (Mrs.) Ruby Hanson advising the students

The Ag. Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. (Mrs.) Ruby Hanson on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor commended the Dean for setting the pace in coaching PhD students of the Faculty. She charged the students to be resolute and learn to persevere in all their endeavours. “As we prepare to exit from active work, we need to seek for replacements; that is why we want the best for you so that when we retire, you take over from us and continue our good works.”
