Held at the Abuakwa Campus of the GBUC in the Atwima Nwabiagya District of Ashanti, the retreat was on the theme, “Marching Our Vision and Our Values”.
The President of the GBUC, Rev. Dr Kojo Osei-Wusuh, who opened the retreat urged both faculty and senior administrators not to train and nurture students only for the job market, but endeavour to help them to live as people with integrity.
He said GBUC, as a Christian academic institution, stood for good values and progressive vision and that it was important for members of staff to eschew negative attitudes towards work for a historic progress in the coming years.
The Registrar of the GBUC, Dr Amanfo Ayim-Nyarko, took the participants through accreditation and affiliation, saying that it was incumbent on all departments and faculties to work on the quality assurance of the university.
He called on the participants to ensure staff quality, stressing on quality delivery of lecture notes.
He, however, called for unity and team work to be the fulcrum of the university, adding that with oneness, the GBUC could achieve greater heights.
The acting Dean of the School of Business, GBUC, Dr Jeoffery Nimo also called on the staff, particularly those working at the school to always strive for excellence to catch up with the business world.
As part of activities marking the retreat, the participants prayed for the peace granted the nation after the Supreme Court’s ruling and also the success of the GBUC.
The Senior Administrator, Mr Eric Osei Kwakye and the Accountant, Mr Francis Kwakye and other new faculty members of the GBUC were introduced.
The retreat also provided a forum for students to ask questions on challenges confronting them, and discuss financial matters and administrative issues.
