Surv. Osei-Barima Esq. said this at the opening ceremony of the annual review meeting for Senior Members of the Registrar’s Offices held on Tuesday, 10th January, 2019 at the Elmina Beach Resort. It was under the theme “Promoting Skills Acquisition for Effective Development in the Public Universities in Ghana: The Role of Administrators”. 

“Senior Members in the Offices of the Registrar have for the past years held annual review meetings and capacity building workshops to reflect on challenges which hindered performances and suggested strategic solutions to improve and build a strong administrative team for our great University.

“Also, goals are set for the ensuing year based on the strategic goals of the University, and the core objective and activities of the Registrar towards the achievement of those strategic goals.” He said.

The Registrar commended the planning team for reasoning along areas of professional development through skills acquisition. “You would agree with me that Administrators are a great resource to every institution because of the unique role they play. They are record keepers, supervisors and implementers of policies and decisions of committees and boards. This role goes without saying that Administrators need to exhibit a great sense of responsibility and professionalism which comes from seeking knowledge in their chosen fields.”

He expressed certainty that due to the caliber of the resource persons, participants would have new knowledge that would effectively impact work in the offices of the Registrar and achieve the Registrar’s transformational agenda in the University.

The Registrar entreated members to have dispassionate discussions on issues and find workable solutions as a team for the progress of UEW, and also meet the changing face of Teacher Education in Ghana.
