Details of Counseling Facility for Pastoral and Academic Student Support
College has constituted a separate department for dedicatedly handling counseling of students for non-academic support. The department, Student Support and Welfare Department, which came into existence this academic session (September 2013), looks into pastoral support to the undergraduate students.
All undergraduate students are allocated a Personal Tutor, who is from their Faculty. Personal Tutor is someone to whom student can go to ask advice about non-academic matters, such as personal and financial problems. Currently the Pastoral Support is being handled by these staff at both the Campuses:
Mr. Peter Kwame Dekpor - Head, Student Support and Welfare Department
Mr. Andrew Victor Blay – Assistant Registrar
At the start of the session, students should meet their Personal Tutor, who will explain them about their role and how they can be contacted in case of any requirement. Students are advised to know their Personal Tutor well and maintain a good communication with him / her. Personal Tutor will listen to students and try to help so long it’s within his / her limit. If not he/she shall refer student to the concerned authority.
Every registered student is assigned an academic counselor who should be the first to be consulted in case the student has problem of academic nature. It is responsibility of the student to seek advice when there is a problem though the counselor may invite the student whenever the need arises. Academic Counselors for the programs under execution are:
Mr. Charles Saah : Program Coordinator - Accra
