EFIWE NEWS: Read UIVC, Prof. Idowu Olayinka's Welcome Note To All Studemts


WELCOME NOTE TO ALL NEW AND RETURNING STUDENTS, 2016/2017 SESSION

I, on behalf of the Council, Senate and Members of the University Management, welcome you to the rather late commencement of the 2016/2017 academic session. The successful completion of the 2015/2016 session was largely due to your cooperation and determination to complete that session in 2016 in spite of the crisis induced vacation  and other industrial  action that occurred early in the year 2016.

The 2016/2017 university calendar approved by the Senate of the University is to ensure that students arrive 18 February 2017 and that lectures  commence immediately on Monday 20 February, 2017.

The University Management and I count that you will once again adopt the sense of responsibility to resume for lectures on the 20th of February 2017 having being on vacation since December 2016, and that you will adopt positive attitudes that will ensure that the semesters run hitch free till the Senate meets to consider final year results on the 23rd October 2017.

Operating a  deliberately hitch free and smooth running calendar, which is uppermost among my priorities will ensure that the graduating students participate in the November 2017 Convocation Ceremonies and proceed for the National Youth's Service Corps or Housemanship or Internship or to the Law School, as appropriate.

In spite of the fact that the provision of Municipal services is a source of nation-wide crisis, the University of Ibadan is putting measures and structures in place to alleviate the challenges faced by the students in 2016 in a bid to ensure that you  have sufficient resources and ample time to concentrate on your studies.

I admonish you all to use the facilities at your disposal :  bedding, water, taps, electricity, reading rooms, class rooms,  inverters  with a  high sense of responsibility because these facilities are owned by you and you should handle them as properties placed in your care or under your oversight in a community in which you are a stake holder. Lodging complaints to the appropriate authorities when facilities malfunction is the quickest way to get them repaired, replaced or restored.

We continue to operate an open and listening policy to ensure that the quality of your well-being and concentration on your studies are enhanced. A number of excellent performances and wins in competitions were recorded among you last session. These kept the University of Ibadan flag flying globally and I and the university management will continually encourage and support you in every way to attain much more excellence in the international community and in world scholarship .

I specifically welcome the freshmen to the first and best university and wish you all an intellectually robust and fulfilling 2016/2017 session .

Idowu Olayinka
Vice-Chancellor
University of Ibadan
7 February, 2017
