SCHOOL OF POSTGRADUATE STUDIES WELCOMES FRESHMEN
The School of Postgraduate Studies, Landmark University organized an orientation programme to welcome scores of freshmen to the various postgraduate programmes in the four colleges of the University for the 2020/2021 academic session on Wednesday, 24th February 2021. The Orientation Programme which was themed “Keeping Track with Best Practices in Postgraduate Studies”, was a veritable platform to introduce the students to the context and culture of Landmark University.
In fulfilment of the programme’s objectives, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju relayed the University’s passionate drive of its research agenda in alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), noting that research stands as one of the core mandates of a university. During his presentation titled, “Building Your Research Career in Landmark University”, the Vice-Chancellor emphasized that their commitment to the research agenda would be their contributions as students towards the actualization of the overarching vision of the University.
Speaking on “Postgraduate Students’ Conduct: The Landmark University Expectation” in furtherance of their acculturation, the Registrar of Landmark University, Miss Fola Oyinloye revealed the University’s royal laws are meant to assist them in the building of their future. While admonishing that they should see the University as their partner in progress, she exposed them to the core values of the University, noting that their positive attitude to them would impact in no small measure their conducts and relationships within and outside the academic community. She, therefore, enthused them with the Scripture in Philippians 4:8 (Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.) and the word of Zig Ziglar – “Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude,” to emphasise the role of correct conduct and attitude in both academic and life success.
Earlier, the Dean of the School, Professor Charity Aremu, had said that the orientation programme was designed to provide relevant information for the students to adjust well to the institution regardless of their previous backgrounds. The Dean presented the school’s studentship policies to the students and called for their commitment to upholding the terms throughout their studentship in Landmark University.
Also, the Deans of the four colleges of the University – Agricultural Sciences: Professor Olasunkanmi Bamiro, Engineering: Professor Makanjuola Oki, Pure and Applied Sciences: Professor A. Adebiyi & Business and Social Sciences – Dr Festus Asamu ably represented by Dr Adedoyin Lawal, welcomed their respective students with their presentations on College perspectives on training, research and publication.
