Mrs. Cynthia Adu appealed to the Vice-Chancellor to consider as part of the objectives of the Fund, training and development programmes targeted at sharpening the skills and knowledge of Professional and Administrative Staff.
The Registrar, Mrs. Mercy Haziel-Ashia commended the Association and mentioned that the appeal by the GAUA President regarding training and development for its members will be implemented accordingly.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, who chaired the ceremony, expressed his profound appreciation to the Association for their thoughtfulness to contribute to the [email protected] Endowment Fund.
Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu quoted a Japanese saying which meant “Think about your institution” and indicated that a sense to uphold such thinking is to move a step further to own the institution. He assured members of the Association that the Endowment Fund would be properly administered. The Vice-Chancellor reiterated that a Board of Trustees will be engaged to manage proceeds of the Fund and entreated GAUA to help ensure the Endowment Fund works.
The Association later presented to the Vice-Chancellor, a donation of the GAUA cloth.
