Affiliation and Amalgamation

Affiliation and Amalgamation

Amalgamation and Affiliation of colleges with universities are national policies of the Government of Papua New Guinea intended to serve the purpose of quality assurance.

Amalgamation is a take-over or merger by an amalgamating entity in which the pre-amalgamation entity no longer exists because it has been completely integration into the system of the amalgamating entity, and one single system of governance and administration is in operation. DWU has amalgamated the former Madang College of Allied Health Sciences into the Faculty of Health Sciences and the former Kaindi St Benedict’s Teacher’s College into the Faculty of Education. Two other colleges are in transition into amalgamation at Kokopo in East New Britain Province. They are the Kabaleo OLSH Teacher’s College and Vunapope St Mary’s School of Nursing.

Affiliation is a collaborative partnership in which an institution seeks accreditation of its academic programs by a University and in doing so benchmarks its academic governance and academic administration practices for the purpose of quality assurance. DWU currently has four affiliated institutions including Don Bosco Technological Institute Port Moresby, Lutheran School of Nursing Madang, Holy Trinity Teacher’s College Mt Hagen and Good Shepherd Seminary Banz, with another two in transition including Callan Studies National Institute Wewak and St Barnabas’s School of Nursing Alotau.

The Divine Word University Act (1999) established DWU as a national university privately administered and working in partnership with the Government for the purpose stipulated by that particular Act of Parliament. Together with the National Executive Council Decision 221/2003 which, granted recognition upon DWU as an agency of higher education form the legal basis for the activities of DWU on amalgamation and affiliation.

The activities of DWU with regard to amalgamation and affiliation are consistent with national government vision, strategic plans, and policy statements such as the Papua New Guinea Vision 2050, Papua New Guinea Development Strategic Plan 2010 – 2030, Partnership Policy Framework Between the Government and the Christian Churches in Papua New Guinea 2008, the Papua New Guinea National Higher Education White Paper and the Papua New Guinea National Higher Education Plan II 2000-2004. A Memorandum of Agreement signed by all major stakeholders of the institutions involved governs the amalgamation or affiliation partnership.

Long before the Government policies on amalgamation and affiliation came into effect, and as early as 1991 the Catholic Education Agency and owners of the respective teachers and nursing colleges had begun to talk about forming a network of these institutions for the purpose of sharing communication, ideas and where applicable resources which would benefit all members of the network. In 1996 when Divine Word University was awarded University status by the Government, it was a natural choice to be the lead institution and coordinating body of the network. The introduction of formal Government policies cited above reaffirmed the existing relationships and encouraged the development of new partnerships.

Vice President Student Affairs

The role of student affairs and services in the DWU is very important to the successful achievement of academic activities. The student affairs are an important service division in the function and life of DWU. The student affairs division is committed to enhancing the personal, educational, occupational, and professional developments of students at DWU. The university is more than an academic institution. It is a community where both academic and support staff and students work together for the advancement of the University and the benefit of the students and the wider community. Thus, anyone one living on the DWU campus whether working or studying is a member of the DWU community.  We work as a community and share our talents, believes and expertise to learn from each other and live in harmony.

Student affairs and services professionals expect students to engage their institution and the learning process. This is done consistent with principles of academic and personal integrity, responsible behavior in a community setting, and the exercise of appropriate freedoms developed in the institutional framework which is part of our Core Values.
    
Higher education and student affairs and services, as integral partners in providing services and programs, must be student centered and include students as partners and responsible stakeholders in their education. Students have the right and responsibility to organize themselves to participate in governance and to pursue their personal and social interests. The function of student affairs is to provide support services to enhance and support them in pursuing their interest. At least we feel that this is our job to ensure that this happens.
    
Students as members of the DWU community are expected to behave in a manner acceptable to the believes and values of the community. This means that students in order to be worthy members of the community will strive to up hold the rules and regulations of the University and to help contribute to the development of the university and the country.
    
The above intentions are essential ingredients for the achievement of the DWU graduate attributes. Therefore, the students affairs division would ensure that the key objectives listed below are achieved through collaborative implementation of the divisional plan with the academic faculties and appropriate line divisions of the university.

As a support division to the academic life of the university, the student affairs division intends to:
•    Promote students learning that enhances holistic development and foster the recognition and appreciation of diversity that exists among students
•    Provide student services and facilities that encourage interpersonal engagement and stimulation of mental and physical health and wellness.
•    Foster a university community that promotes the opportunities for students’ involvement through enhanced interpersonal and social and community engagement.
•    Develop and expand efforts for effective marketing and promotion of DWU programs and the recruitment of students, retention and graduation.
•    Work towards a unified and centralized student administration (selection, admission, enrollment and registration) of students in the undergraduate, postgraduate and flexible learning programs.
    
The Vice President SA oversees the operation of the division and is responsible to ensure that all aspects of student administration and student services are functioning and run smoothly according to its Operational Plan 2014-2016. The SAD Operational Plan is guided by the DWU Vision and Mission Statement, the DWU Second Decade Strategic Plan 2006-2016 and the 2011 External Audit Committee recommendations specific to the division.

God bless all our efforts and guide us to do a service for Him.

The Student Services Building on the Madang Campus is named after the Rt. Hon  Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare GCL, GCMG, CH, CF, K St J, the founding Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea.

Student Services Department

The Student Service is a department of the Student Affairs Division and consists of a director, office manager/transport coordinator, residential deans, counselors, the clinic staff and drivers. Its core function is to provide the necessary support for student’s welfare at the university.  Thus it is responsible for student’s accommodation, dining, sports, social and recreational activities, counseling and discipline. The department also works closely with the Student Representative Council (SRC), the academic faculties and the university administration in the delivery of student services and planned DWU calendar activities.

The SS department is the custodian of the DWU Student Discipline Policy and ensures that it is implemented fairly and appropriately. Furthermore, it also strives to uphold and promote the DWU Core Values of Integrity, Academic excellence, Community engagement/service, Respect, Diversity, Hospitality, Learning for life and Social responsibility amongst the students.

Most importantly at DWU students are regarded as members of the Divine Word Community rather than clients. Therefore, the role of the SS department is critical in developing a holistic person with sound moral and ethical values by ensuring that students’ physical, social and spiritual lives and experiences are enhanced.

Director For Student Services

The Director for Student Services coordinates the student services primarily on the Madang campus and ensures quality service and care for the students. The Director ensures a positive and safe environment for students and staff. The Director is also responsible ensuring the right conduct of student behavior and processes university discipline procedures.  The university is very conscious of its duty-of-care responsibility to students and parents.  The university also promotes a zero-tolerance of alcohol on campus in discipline matters.

The Student Services staff are ably assisted by a receptionist who serves as a point-of-contact for students and families.

Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance at DWU

Assuring the public, DWU benefactors, the professions and Papua New Guinea Government of the integrity and quality of DWU’s academic awards is of paramount importance to the standing of Divine Word University both nationally and internationally. Therefore, DWU takes quality assurance seriously.  DWU’s quality assurance and enhancement framework covers a wide range of strategies and policies, all of which are in place to ensure that DWU continues to develop and maintain high standards of academic excellence. The strategies include international benchmarking of programs through twinning partnerships international universities, and cyclic external independent audits at both program and institutional levels. Internal strategies include annual program and unit reviews as well as appraisal of new programs for standards compliance prior to implementation.

AQAAB

A new Academic Quality Assurance and Accreditation Board will be established once the 2015-2016 review of the DWU organizational structure has been completed. This Board will be responsible, among other activities, for the quality assurance of new program proposals and major program changes. It will provide guidance for updating of existing QA policies and processes. Until the new Board is established, these functions will be taken on by the VPAQAA and the Quality Assurance Division.
