The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sunday Elom has lauded the partnership between Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi State and the University of Gavle, Sweden, on staff and students’ mobility programme.

The Vice-Chancellor gave his commendation recently when 10 academic staff of the University that benefited from the exchange programme paid him a courtesy call in his office. The staff were in Sweden under the framework of Linnaeus+ and Erasmus+ exchange projects from May 14th to June 4th, 2022.

Prof. Elom equally noted that the travel was at no financial cost to the university, and therefore lauded the gains of the mobility programme, especially in the capacity building of the University academic staff, adding that through it, the beneficiaries had been exposed to international best practices in the areas of teaching and learning.

 

While thanking the Vice-Chancellor for his support, the Director of Academic Planning, Prof. Dr. Johnny Ogunji stated that the programme enabled the staff to cross-fertilize ideas with fellow academics in the University of Gavle, Sweden, stressing that they also studied new things and acquired additional knowledge which they intend to replicate in the course of discharging their academic responsibilities as lecturers in AE-FUNAI.
