Students Affairs

This section provides services to support the student’s life at the university and help them realize their career aspirations. It facilitates students social, personality and academic growth and development through counseling and career guidance. The counseling services are broadened to address the wide array of concerns common with students and youth in the university today. To accomplish this office of the Dean of students has trained peer counselors spread across all the programs and distributed in the main students residential places. This strategy helps to quickly identify students with problems that require counseling. The office also maintains a close interaction with members of the faculty where the students are registered to help resolve problems that may arise at that level. The peer counselors are frequently trained to keep abreast of any emerging issues in key areas of concern for the youth like HIV/AIDS scourge and Alcohol and Drug Abuse. This supplements the efforts of the University Aids Control Unit (ACU).
