Dear Colleagues and Stakeholders,
Welcome to the new academic year 2016. This year we have a new theme: Innovating DWU through collaborative learning and collaborative knowledge creation in the global network for higher learning. The theme reminds us of the fact that we are entering the third decade of DWU’s development and invites us to think and act with a view to achieving international standards. To move from the level of a national university, to international levels is at the same time an exciting dream and a huge challenge.
When we reflect on the theme of the year, it is appropriate for us to gratefully acknowledge our stakeholders, partners, sponsors and benefactors. Our collaboration with them and their support to us have substantially contributed to the development of our faculty. I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome all staff and students of the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences (FASS). In a special way, I welcome the new staff, Fr Dr Philip Gibbs (HOD/DGL), Ms Maria Sagrista (CA) and Mr Steven Gimbo (CA). I would like to cordially welcome Ms Monica Sikas back into our team after her studies overseas for the last two years. I extend a warm welcome to all our students, who are the most important members of our community.
