INAUGURATION OF THE GOVERNING COUNCIL 2015
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor assumes duty at Chrisland University
EXTRACT FROM THE MEETING OF THE DEPUTY VICE-CHANCELLOR WITH THE PRINCIPAL OFFICERS
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oyelana Olatunji reiterates the strategic goals of the University as laid
out by the Chancellor and Founder, High Chief Dr (Mrs) Winifred A. Awosika during his interaction with the University Principal officers.
The vision of the Chancellor/Founder is for Chrisland University to be a World Class entrepreneurial University.
Therefore, we must always project Chrisland University as the ONLY credible alternative to public universities in Nigeria
and Africa by ensuring that we are constantly guided by the University’s core ethical standards. These standards
should define our conduct and work ethics and the relationships with the outside world.
The immediate goal and strategy of the Chancellor is such that our teaching and research activities must be need
driven, and must seek to provide Home-Made alternative technologies in order to overcome the developmental challenges of our peasant
communities, and as well, provide the much needed platform for industrialization of Africa. Consequently, our faculty staff and support staff
were carefully selected from across the globe for their unique professional competences in teaching, research and student mentorship.
This is meant to fully complement the huge investment on modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities to ensure the
right acquisition of relevant skills and knowledge by our students in order for them to be globally employable, and with right competences for the emerging jobs of 21st century world.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor equally emphasized the Chancellor’s quest for constant innovation of all administrative processes and procedure
to ensure better and effective service delivery in teaching, research, product designing and development and community services.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor therefore appealed to the officers on the need to remain focused, dedicated and building
excellent team spirit in the discharge of their daily duties. The officers were equally enjoined to use their authority and influence to positively engage other staff members
to build productive work ethics in the interest of the University.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor reiterated the need to make our teaching-learning experiences more student focused, as well as, provide
them the right and adequate industry exposure for appropriate hands-on experiences. This will help engender the right entrepreneurial mind- set required to develop future entrepreneurs.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor affirmed the commitment of the Chancellor to building and improving on the existing profile of staff through
exposure to constant training and institutional exchanges with our mentoring universities. We must jointly mobilize our students and University
community to providing community services within the host and adjoining communities through voluntary cooperation. The goal of the Founder
and Chancellor is to institute programmes and specific schemes that would be geared towards providing developmental projects within the host and adjoining
communities to alleviate poverty and improve on the subsistence occupational practices. This she hopes will improve the economic status of thousands of indigenes.
