Unilorin students to evaluate lecturers, says VC

Prof. Wahab Egbewole (SAN), the vice chancellor of the University of Ilorin, made a call to students yesterday encouraging them to take part in the upcoming student evaluation of staff.

At a meeting with the leaders of the students union, Egbewole made the appeal and stated that the initiative was designed to guarantee the best possible performance from the university staff.

He emphasised how important it is to get student feedback in order to improve certain areas of the university’s operations.

“We are focused on gathering feedback from students about our campus operations. Understanding how our staff members are faring is crucial to our improvement efforts.

“It is not a witch-hunt, but a sincere endeavour to enhance our system through collaboration with students,’’ he said.

Prof. Egbewole also reiterated the management of the university’s steadfast commitment to placing the wellbeing of students first.

He claimed that despite a lack of funding, the university had lowered tuition to lessen the financial load on students and their parents or guardians.

In response, Mr. Joseph Ologundudu, President of the Students Union, expressed appreciation for the platform that allows students to regularly communicate with the university administration.

He mentioned that the administration of the school had encouraged the union to work together on a number of fronts.
