During the retreat, staff from various NUST departments, centres and units shared valuable information with their regional colleagues to update them on new developments to be implemented at regional level that will synchronise student services offered at the regions with that offered on the main campus.
NUST centres and units that made valuable contributions this year, included the Human Resources Department; Department of Information and Communication Technology; Library; Cooperative Education Unit; Department of Communications and Marketing; Finance Department; Office of the Registrar; Quality Assurance Unit; Department of Student Services; NUST Institutional Planning, NUST FM and the NUST Brand Manager.
Dr Delvaline Möwes, Director of COLL, said regional staff members perform duties and tasks across these NUST units to ensure that a holistic service is delivered to distance education students in the regions, and therefore, it is important that they are kept up to date with new developments and changes.
“They perform tasks that are done by different people on the main campus and therefore, they serve as NUST ambassadors throughout the country. This year, they enthusiastically took on the role of student councillors in liaison with the Department of Student Services, while another highlight was their pledge to live the NUST brand in the regions.
