INRODUCTION

Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) all over the world are the fulcrums of transformation in their host communities. Ironically, HEIs in our clime make very little impact on our society. While the general expectations focused on research breakthroughs of the academia, the HEIs, being a system, can only deliver the goods if all their components are properly positioned and functioning effectively and efficiently. That is the reason why this workshop is organized to further sensitize the HEI administrators and hone their skills for impactful service delivery.

FUTA registry has curved a niche for itself as a resource pool in Nigeria, and that has been made possible through training and re-training of its workforce. Staff of the registry are encouraged and supported to attend trainings, workshops and conferences within and outside Nigeria, while similar educational fora are crested in the university as part of the registry’s contributions to manpower development and upliftment of our nation.

Objectives

The objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Crete an avenue for HE Administrators to identify areas where exceptions are not being met;
  • Encourage robust discourse and networking among participants;
  • Bring to the fore, latest paradigms in HEI administration;
  • Sensitize participants on their roles in the mandates of their respective HEIs;
  • Improve the productivity of every participant in their HEIs and, by extension, in our nation.
