Putting students first;
IoE’s emphasis is, first and foremost, its students. It seeks to enable and facilitate improved services, facilities, quality of research opportunities, visibility, collaborations, innovative programmes and courses.
The IoE tagline ‘national needs, global standards’ is to be geared towards academic, financial and administrative support for all its students. A range of plans is being developed towards conferences/workshops (organising, attending), financial aid (travel, research grants), capacity-building programmes, information-dissemination, campus-services, academic assistance, among others.
IoE prepares UoH’s eminent students as the most sought-after employees, researchers and faculty by organisations across the globe.
IoE also wishes to enable capacity-building among the non-teaching and administrative staff in the form of training programmes across various levels and domains of expertise. To this end, a slew of measures to enable them to attend and organize such programmes is being drawn up.
Boost to faculty output
A university’s global visibility relies heavily on its faculty output. IoE will be funding research projects, outreach activities, capacity-building measures from its faculty. Proposals have been invited for new projects, ideally interdisciplinary and innovative, from faculty.
The university views IoE as a good opportunity in its history to leverage its existing reputation, practices and services to catapult its students into the best and highest leagues globally.
