Ag. Vice-Chancellor encourages graduands to never stop learning as they enter the world of work

The Ag. Vice-Chancellor again indicated that Management had procured new sets of modern furniture for all the new lecture theatres to create the necessary conducive environment for teaching and learning. “The fixing of furniture and allocation of offices at the Student Centre has been done. In the coming days, the centre will come up live with full-scale student-centred activities.”

Prof. Ofori-Birikorang urged graduands to never, ever stop learning but should leave the University and enter into the world of work with the mindset that they have a lot more to learn. “Therefore, our approach to work should be a mindset to inquire; observe; recognise that we may be incorrect every now and then; and that we are always work in progress to master our work and craft.”
