With these mandates in mind the Vice Chancellor in consultation with the management, appointed an Ag. Director for the Centre, Dr. Adewole ATERE, who is being ably assisted by Co-ordinators. The Centre also has an Administrative Secretary. You will certainly require to relate directly or indirectly with these Officers of the Centre, in the course of your studentship in this University.
May i also appeal to you to develop interest in and acquire necessary skill in Information and Communication Technology. This becomes imperative because the Centre into which you are being offered admission/ have been offered admission is ICT driven, while most of the programmes are Distance and Open Learning in nature. Thus, from application to admission, registration, access to reading material, submission of assignments, checking of results, and other activities at the Centre are all ICT driven. As a student of the Centre, you are to note that you have a right to enjoy some rights and privileges that accrue to regular students of the University.
These include access to library facilities, sports and recreational facilities, lecturers on your programmes and others, administrative and technical staff. In the same vein, there are responsibilities attached to your studentship, such as being studious, conducting your registration well and timely, attendance at revision classes, sitting for examination, consulting the notice boards and the student portal, none involvement in examination and other misconduct and comporting yourself in a way that will project you, your family, your place of employment and the University, positively. What more should i say than to welcome you to UNIOSUN on behalf of the Governing Council, Senate, Management of the University and the Centre. I wish you a fruitful studentship at Centre for Human Resource Development and LifeLong Learning, OSUN STATE UNIVERSITY.
