The University of Cape Coast (UCC), under the auspices of the Welfare Section of the Directorate of Human Resource, has visited 15 selected retired members of staff in the Central Region, Greater Accra and Volta Regions.
The initiative dubbed ‘Retirees Outreach Programme’ is aimed at reaching out to a number of retired staff in various regions of the country.
The retired staff members visited were in the Junior and Senior Staff, as well as Senior Members categories.
The retirees were presented with hampers, fruits and other souvenirs from the University, as a way of expressing appreciation for the selfless and meritorious services rendered during their active services to the University.
A three-day training programme for newly appointed Provosts, Deans, Directors, Heads of Department and Coordinators of the University has been opened at the Capital Hill Hotel in Cape Coast.
The main objective of the programme is to build capacity to improve the academic and administrative performance of heads in the university.
It is also designed to build vibrant and high performing academic and administrative heads capable of providing sustainable quality academic and administrative leadership and effective financial management towards achieving the universities strategic plan in maintaining proper academic performance at all levels.
The University of Cape Coast, unlike some other places you may have worked, is a friendly working environment, and you will soon realize that UCC is much more than an education institution. We are a community working together to educate the nation's future leaders. There is nothing more fulfilling, rewarding or exciting than to be a part of this effort. Each staff has a specific role in preparing students for their professional careers, and our success rests on how each of us does his/her job. From the maintenance and environmental workers who work diligently to make UCC the warm and inviting place that it is, to the executive staff, who make major policy decisions, we all are committed to making UCC the best it can be.
