University of Goroka (UOG) is set to make several changes in 2019 to better their students.
Vice-chancellor Dr Musawe Sinebare said UOG’s main task as an education institute for teachers still stood but was changing with the trends to provide quality human resource.
“All these steps taken are necessary to develop the students, not only in the classrooms but outside as well,”he said.
Sinebare said as of 2019:
- A clock-in clock-out system would be in place;
- a first-ever database system will be set up at student administration;
- a first-ever breathalyser test would be carried out on campus in place to enforce the zero-tolerance alcohol policy;
- a new tuition fee paying system would be implemented to discourage fraudulent activities; and,
- A new students’ representative council (SRC) would be put in place.
UOG is the third-largest of the six universities in Papua New Guinea, and is by far the largest teacher education institution.
