How to Stop Corruption at Universities

(UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL WEDNESDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2016, 9 PM - CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY)

Speech at the opening of the Postgraduate Certificate Program on Student-Centred Teaching at the Papua New Guinea University of Technology on Wednesday 10 February 2016, 4  pm.

Background

Why is the Papua New Guinea University of Technology offering a course for all its staff on student centred teaching? Possible answers are, because of accreditation requirements, because of our vision to become a student-centred university producing highly employable graduates, because of the specific characteristics of our special students, or because we constantly need to update our knowledge in order to stay relevant in society?

Let me tell you how I feel about it.  I belief that only by focusing exclusively on excellence in teaching and research, universities can be leading institutions towards building a knowledge-based society. This course will help us focus again on our fundamental principles in teaching, propel us towards excellent and best-practice, and assist us in developing a common understanding and approach to effective teaching.

However, more effective teaching and better learning will only occur only if all forms of corruption at the university are rooted out.

Vice Chancellor's Speech Opening of the new Nursing Buildings 5 February 2016

VC and Principal receiving keys from Minister of Health, Hon. Malabag

Honoured Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Background

Today, we celebrate an important milestone in the rebuilding of the Angau Hospital and the Lae UNITECH Nursing College (LUNC). It is a happy occasion and part of this year's celebration of our Golden Jubilee year. We are happy and proud the LUNC is an important part of our diverse community of learning. Amongst our faculty we have over 30 different nationalities, and representatives of all world religions, muslims, hindus, budhists, bahai etc. PNG is a Christian country, but freedom of religion is enshrined in its constitution, and we believe that diversity is in deed our strength.

First and foremost, I want to congratulate the Principal of the College, Manase Moya, for overseeing the building of these dormitories, bringing all the parties together and providing leadership, and organizing this event on such short notice. I also want to thank Deputy Vice Chancellor to whom I have delegated all matters concerning our 3 colleges - Bulolo University College, Timber and Forestry Training College and the Lae UNITECH Nursing College. Then I want to thank. Dr. Kaul Gena PVC-Administration and the Project Office team, who have taken care of the building of staff houses for the LUNC on our main, Taraka campus.
