Let society feel the impact of your knowledge UEW Vice Chancellor tells students

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba has called on students in the country’s tertiary institutions to make the knowledge they have acquired count.

The Vice Chancellor, Professor Mawutor Avoke who was speaking at the matriculation of Distance Education students of the University stressed, education becomes meaningless if society does not feel their impact.

“The knowledge you have acquired is to inspire hope and serve as a building block for the future generation. If these things are not achieved, I am sorry; you have disappointed humanity and your entire generation.”

Professor Avoke also wants the students on the Distance Education program to pay attention to professionalism.

“Every profession requires high professional standards. As professional teachers and business executives under training, you should be seen as role models”.

The Vice Chancellor also expressed delight in the recognition received by the Distance Education program that has culminated in the addition of six new study centres to the existing ones.

“We will continue to open more study centres in order to bring higher education further closer to you. We also introduced two new programs that are meant to give Higher National Diploma (HND) and Degree holders without education background, the opportunity to become professional teachers.”

A total of 11,082 were offered admission by the University into its distance education program.
