Vice Chancellor’s End-of-Year Message to Staff and Students

The year 2021, what a year it has been! I think, for all of us, this has been something of a
rollercoaster year, the challenges associated with managing the COVID-19 virus,
continuing impact of the flooding experienced towards the end of the preceding year,
with resultant changes in the academic calendar, then preparations for the essential
process of receiving accreditation teams just as we were also busy trying to make
arrangements for end-of-year activities, including examinations. In spite of all those
challenges, we must give thanks to God that we are at this point, just a little under two
weeks to the end of the year, with our health intact and so much accomplished. I think it
is quite evident that, over the last few months, there has also been a major transformation
in the appearance and general tone of the campus. None of that would have been possible
without the material support we received from the State Government but, even more
important, the hard work and sacrifices all of you made in giving of your time and effort
and your contributions to that effort in various other ways. Now that you know just how
much we can do to make our environment pleasant and livable, we should not stop here,
but continue to aim for the best and find ways to achieve continuous improvement, in
every aspect of our lives in this community. The accreditation visits are over now, but it
will not be until sometime early next year before we know how we fared. However, we
remain very optimistic.
I would therefore like to now take this time to thank each and everyone of you for
whatever positive role you may have played in advancing our cause and helping us get to
this stage. Let me also take a moment to wish you all a merry Christmas and a blessed
New Year and invite you all to set your minds to return in 2022 with an energized spirit
and the desire to achieve even more than we managed this year.

Prof. K. Nyamapfene
Vice Chancellor
