LMU HOLDS LEVEL ADVISEMENT PROGRAMME TOWARDS ENHANCING ACADEMIC QUALITY

Landmark University Academic Level Advisement Programme has been intentional and consistent in its contribution towards enhancing students’ academic experience by supporting them throughout their academic journey and facilitating their personal and professional growth. The recent meeting of the group of advisors sought to address the information dissemination gap limiting effective advisement in the University by updating the information available to the advisor for adequate dissemination. The programme had three fundamental sessions bordering on Students’ Promotion Criteria, expectations from postgraduate coordinators on students’ admission to completion workflow, and anticipated quality in students’ requests and appeals. 


In the first session, the Director of Academic Planning, Dr Adebiyi Shola presented the “Revised Students’ Promotion Criteria” towards situating the LMU promotion criteria within the ambit of NUC promotion guidelines for students. He provided insights into steps in calculating GPA/CGPA; Course Unit System; LMU Minimum and Maximum Credit Load per Semester; Good Standing (Old and New); Not In Good Standing (Old and New); Withdrawal Criteria; Promotion from Penultimate Level to final year; and Graduation Requirements.


The Dean of School of Postgraduate Studies, Professor Babatunde Adebesin took the second presentation titled “Students’ Admission to Completion Workflow: Expectations from PG Coordinators”. Professor Adebesin stressed the crucial role quality assurance plays in the progress of any institution that desires world-class status. Having enumerated the noticeable encumbrances of postgraduate research and studies, he said that it is important that all hands are on deck to ensure the institution delivers quality academic services that would facilitate a most remarkable and all-round student experience.


The Chair, LMU Quality Assurance Committee,  Professor Omorefosa Osemwegie made the third presentation titled “Anticipated Quality In Students’ Requests And Appeals".  In his presentation, the chair stated the need of the students vis-à-vis their level advisers which include information on course selection and registration, counsel/advice, support, and direction in their academic journey, requirements for SWEP and SIWES, requirements for progression and graduation, clashes in lecture/exam time-table, harassment and bullying among others. He said that academic advising occupies a strategic position in the University to provide academic support services for the students. While stressing that the mentorship received from the advisement platform would go a long way to help the students make appropriate choices and informed decisions that would guarantee a successful academic experience for students, Professor Osemwegie enthused the advisors to put in their best to the task.
