NUC team visits Caritas University

15 August 2012, 11:38

Abuja -  A five-member audit team from the National Universities Commission (NUC) on Tuesday inspected facilities at  Caritas University, Amorji-Nike, Enugu East Local Government Area.

The team, led by Prof. Dele Sanni, sought information on the quality of staff, academic records, appointment of heads of departments, deans of faculties and admission of students.

The team also inspected the faculties, office buildings, laboratories, libraries, hostels and other infrastructure to ascertain if the facilities on ground were in consonance with NUC 'sstandards.

On the issue of promotion, Sanni reminded the university's Governing Council that the vice-chancellor was usually the chairman of the appraisal panel for promotion.

``One or two members from the board, the Senate and College of Deans are also appointed as members,’’ he said.

In his remarks, the university' Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Lawrence Onukwube, said the university was ready to comply with the rules of NUC.

Onukwube said the visit of the committee would go a long way to demonstrate that the university was prepared to follow due process and thanked the team for the decision to come to see things for itself.

Dr Obinna Uzoh, Chairman of the Governing Council, said that the council and the founder of the institution were working toward ensuring that facilities at the university were upgraded.

The university was one of the seven institutions that had their licences withdrawn recently by the commission.
