Students’ Handbook: Ad-Hoc Committee Turns in Report

An 8-man Ad-Hoc Committee saddled with reviewing the Covenant University Students’ Handbook ahead of the new academic session has turned in their report. The Chairman of the committee and Dean, Students’ Affairs, Professor David Imhonopi, while delivering the revised handbook, said the assignment was diligently carried out with members reading through the previous handbook towards making informed adjustments where necessary.

Professor Imhonopi said the general sitting of the committee availed members’ ample opportunity to make appropriate amendments to accommodate the present realities of ICT and technology in the learning environment.

He appreciated every member of the committee for their tireless dedication to the task of making the Students’ Handbook one that will be fair, forward-looking, and, above all, relevant to making the University environment one that is friendly and more accommodating.

The Acting Registrar, Mr. Emmanuel Igban, thanked the team for undertaking the gruelling and time-demanding task of ensuring that the content of the revised Students’ Handbook stands the test of time when subjected to legal scrutiny.

In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abiodun Adebayo, commended the committee for a good job done, noting that any system that is not open to a constant review process will go extinct.

Professor Adebayo noted that a continuous review exercise is vital to improved service delivery, which engenders steady ultimate growth and development of the University. He asked the committee to represent the report, highlighting new provisions and amendments as introduced into the Handbook, and submit the final draft to the University management.

Professor Adebayo said with the Dean of Students' Affairs being at the helm of the review exercise, the occupant of that office has been better positioned to be on sound footing in performance as it pertains to the assignment of students’ management and the inherent questions associated with the task.

The membership of the Ad-Hoc Committee was drawn from the Chaplaincy, Legal Unit, Students Support Programme Unit, Students’ Affairs, Physical Planning and Development, and the Media and Corporate Affairs Unit of the University.
