UEW Commissions State-of-the-Art Infrastructure to Advance Academic and Research Excellence
The Management of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), on Friday, 29th September, 2023, commissioned several long-standing projects on the university’s campus to bolster academic and research excellence.
The commissioned projects included a 100-bed hospital facility, two 3,000-capacity hostels, a state-of-the-art lecturer’s block complex, a commercial centre, a prefabricated three-bedroom apartment, the faculty block and water projects at Ajumako, and study centres in Accra, Cape Coast, and Techiman.
The immediate past Vice-Chancellor of UEW, Prof. Mawutor Avoke, in commissioning the projects with the University Management, highlighted some 13 huge accomplished projects under his leadership.
“This commissioning is symbolic of the other projects that we have pursued and completed across the length and breadth of the country. Indeed, the Ajumako and CODeL projects in Accra, Cape Coast, and Techiman are also done, but due to the pressure of work and distance, this commissioning is symbolic of all those projects,” he avowed.
The third Vice-Chancellor of UEW catalogued the contributions of his administration to the development of the university within the short term they have had with the university. He was hopeful that the new administration would raise the bar and help the university live its mission and vision.
He called on staff to rally behind the new administration in its quest to take the university to the next level. He also expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the contractors, his management team, and staff for their unwavering support in bringing his administration to a successful end.
The Ag. Registrar, Mrs. Wilhelmina Tete-Mensah, on behalf of the management team and staff, thanked Prof. Avoke for his leadership. She said, “Indeed, we’ve gone through turbulent times, and several of us admire and respect you for your tenacity. Not everybody would survive what you’ve endured in this institution. We’ve learned a lot from working closely with you. We believe that this institution and posterity would be kind to you for the hard work and everything you've done to lift up the image of the university.”
She commended Prof. Avoke for bringing sanity to the institution on his return. “To a large extent, you have helped to build a bridge by which all the divides in the system could be brought together, and we say a big ayekoo to you. We are very grateful to you.”
