2016 Address to UMYU Community

“To learn and to serve” Let us proudly move forward 

Happy New Year! I sincerely hope that all staff and students have a wonderful year ahead of them.

Looking back at 2015, the year has been that of anxiety and great expectation. In international affairs, there were frequent unsettling moments and violence with several wars and terror attack around the globe. Closer home in Nigeria are also violent attacks and the fears associated with Boko Haram, cattle rustling and several communal clashes coupled with being an election year. Happily towards the end of the year things begin to settle down and peace restored thanks to the peaceful conduct and transition to a new government.  

There is no doubt that the year 2015 will be regarded as a year of historical turning-points. One of the turning points unfortunately is the economic downtown with drastic drop of oil prices and thus the drastic earnings of the nation. The situation is and remains an economic or near economic crises which will have bearing in our work and day to day activities. In a situation like this, and with continuing trend, every organization including University will be forced to make changes.

Still looking back at 2015, it was a good year for UMYU. We had a smooth uninterrupted academic calendar, Twenty (25) undergraduate academic programmes obtained full accreditation status, three additional post graduate programmes were introduced, and there were 31 physical development on-going projects.

For all of us, staff, students and other stakeholders at UMYU, 2016 is for reflection and strive to proudly move forward with positive changes. To reflect is to restate our purpose as prescribed in the Law establishing and governing our conduct as a University and commitment to achieve. As a University we must seek solutions to problems that may have seemed unsolvable, endeavouring to answer questions that threaten to elude us. The research work we undertake and the students we educate must have capacity to improve our immediate communities.

In our third (after teaching and research) and equally important function, community service, we must ask the right questions and find the right answers to the problems starkly steering us, prominent here is the near total decay of our educational system, utterly prominent at the primary and secondary levels.

In relation to this problem is the novel idea of the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of our Governing Council to involve our prominent citizens and members of UMYU community in voluntary teaching in Katsina State public schools. We are developing this initiative and we are preparing for its take-off this year and will certainly call for the cooperation of each and every one.

We are this year joined by more and more of our staff that had completed their Ph. Ds in different fields of study. These “new” community members are back at a time when University education is undergoing rapid and dramatic transformation worldwide. Knowledge is growing in importance in addressing the world’s problems, technology promises both wondrous possibilities and profound dislocations, outside forces are increasingly shaping lives and work, and government and public expectations and demands of higher education are intensifying.  There are opportunities in these situational developments—opportunities for our teaching, for our research, and for our societal (community) service.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Professor Idris Isa Funtua

Vice Chancellor
