An international consultant in Quality Assurance from the United States of America, Dr Eileen White has delivered lectures on institutional governance and quality at Valley View University (VVU) at the Columbia Conference Room.
The programme was chaired by the Pro-vice Chancellor, Professor Philip Maiyo. In his address, Prof Philip Maiyo urged VVU workers to ensure quality in every aspect of their work since the Lord Himself requires that of his people.
Some of the topics treated included ‘Ensuring Institutional Quality’, and ‘Strategic Planning and Where God Fits.’
Dr White emphasised the importance of the Lord in the day to day plans of university workers “Our preparations plus God’s providences is equal to success.”
She also added that for leaders to set high standards, their lives must be dedicated to the course of God. “Leaders don’t just set goals, they set standards and these standards begin with our spiritual lives.”
In her presentations, Dr White, who was accompanied by her husband, O.C White, a civil engineer, praised Valley View University for the standards it has achieved in Ghana.
As an international consultant, Dr White provides educational and organizational development strategies in the area of planning, assessment, and evaluation to private and public colleges and universities.
The workshop which was coordinated by the Quality Assurance and Academic Planning Unit of Valley View University was attended by deans, senior members as well as some junior members of the University.
Participants in the workshop had the occasion to interact with the guest speaker as well as interact with each other in small groups to generate solutions to some challenges that were identified in the course of the programme.
The participants also expressed their contentment for being part of the workshop.
