LANDMARK INDUCTED NEW FACULTY AND STAFF
“It is not accidental that you came on board when the Vision for a World-Class status was caught; it is rather essential that you prove your onion as a partner in progress towards actualizing the vision”. These were the words of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju at the induction of Faculty and Staff of the University, held at the International Conference Centre on 24th January, 2019
While intimating them with the purpose of the Induction, he averred that Landmark is a place for them to be, to learn and to live responsibly in order to give deserving meanings to the lives of others worldwide through providing food security. He added that, riding on the wave of uncompromising quest for excellence with improving accomplishments, Landmark is no doubt a cynosure of all eyes, even as audacious as the vision is, talk more of her compelling mission, cum lofty core values, the University is attracted to a great deal of people across the globe from all walks of life, striving to partner with her to drive for food security which is a sine qua non for existence, growth and development of any nation.
“Teeming prospective applicants to Landmark on an average of one hundred applications per day (about 30,000 per year) is a proof of relevance and impact the University commands. This is why I specially congratulate you on your success at our various screening points culminating on your receipt of employment letter. You are apparently singled out by merit from the crowd to be of good service in an institution that values collective approach to proffering solutions the society deserves.”
Professor Olayanju further noted that it is rather essential that they prove their onion as partners in progress towards actualizing the vision of the university. He added that their arrival should not rival with the team on ground, as the Institution believes that cooperation among the workforce would take the University further and higher in achievement than what competition could offer the organization. “While cooperation unites and builds, competition divides and destroys. It is wise to build synergy and bring our collective potentials to the round table in the spirit of unity to conquer our common enemy and live a life worthy of praise to our creator, God almighty.”
