ACADEMIC STAFF ASSESSMENT

A weekly exercise is going to be carried out by the individual class representatives with the consultation of the respective class members to assess the performance of lecturers, lab assistants and the teaching assistants.

STUDENT MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

This is going to be a student driven and managed initiative that will provide assistance in school work outside class as well as remedial lessons to students lagging behind and those who cannot cope up with their classes. It will consist of the twenty Resident Assistants selected by campus housing as well as 30 more who have excelled in their academics from the level 200 to 400 groups. These students will be labelled ambassadors of their respective modules they will be tutoring. The program will be structured in such a way that two 2 hour catch up classes of each of the modules will be conducted and each ambassador should put in at least 7 extra hours of personal assistance to individual students or smaller groups per week. Proper records concerning time put in by each ambassador will be well documented so as to keep track on them. Since the student mentorship program is going to play a great part in improving student performance academic wise, MAA will push for the ambassador to get special benefits from the university.
