55 Faculty Ascend New Levels at Covenant
Covenant University’s apex decision making body, the Board of Regents, has approved the promotion of 55 members of faculty.
A breakdown of the 55 promoted faculty featured 17 of them moving from the level of Assistant Lecturer to Lecturer II; 17 from Lecturer II to Lecturer I; and 21 from Lecturer I to Senior Lecturer. The promotion cuts across various departments in the four Colleges of the University.
Unveiling the newly promoted faculty at a recent meeting in the Senate Chambers of Covenant, the Registrar, Dr. Olumuyiwa Oludayo, said the change of levels was the result of the promotion exercise that started earlier in 2017, when members of faculty were encouraged to submit application for promotion.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor AAA. Atayero, who charged the newly promoted faculty to see their elevation as a call to higher duty and not a gift, urged them to be mindful of Covenant’s vision of becoming one of the top 10 universities in the world in a few years’ time. He said the University is at the top and wants to remain there.
Professor Atayero said Covenant is blessed as no other university in Nigeria today has the type of Board that Covenant has.
While encouraging the promoted faculty to hold strongly to their jobs as their seats were being contested, the Vice-Chancellor assured that their labour shall not be in vain.
Also present at the meeting were Deans of Colleges, and other Principal Officers of Covenant.
