For A Fulfilled Academic Experience
On behalf of the Council, Senate, and Management of the University of Calabar, I welcome you all to the 2020/2021 academic session. I congratulate, especially, our esteemed freshmen for scaling the hurdles in the course of your admission into the institution. As an institution with a penchant for academic excellence, I wish to reiterate our commitment to your moral, educational and professional development in line with global best practices. We will strive to ensure you acquire qualitative education to make you stand head and shoulders above your contemporaries on the global stage. For our returning students, we hope the break has afforded you the time for stock-taking. I charge you to redouble your efforts in pursuit of your academic goals. The current administration, though still in its incipient stage, will continue to make conscious efforts to ensure a conducive environment for effective teaching and learning. Our mission and vision are to churn out value-driven and purposeful graduates that are found worthy in character and learning while building a community founded on a harmonious co-existence of staff and students. We can achieve this laudable goal if you all key into this vision by focusing on your studies. Accord priority attention to your academic endeavours and desist from engaging in unwholesome practices that may jeopardize your future, and by extension, cause reputational damage to our great citadel of learning. Together we can make our institution the envy of all other tertiary institutions in the country and the world, at large. While we wish you a fruitful and rewarding stay in the institution, we are optimistic that your academic endeavours will be achieved. Once again, on behalf of Management, I heartily welcome you all to a rewarding session at the University of Calabar.
