The Student Represent Council (SRC) of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has announced that it has provided shuttles at vantage points to transport students to their various campuses.
This follows a notice from the management of the Institution asking students who had their first-semester face-to-face academic activities at the Osu Ring-Way campus to now have their second-semester face-to-face activities at the North Dzorwulu campus of the Institution.
According to the President of the Student Representative Council, Ismael Nii Lantey Lartey, the SRC has put in place measures to mitigate the financial impact that the change in campuses for the second academic semester will have on students.
Ismael Nii Lantey Lartey assured students that the SRC is available to see to the needs of the students in every possible way they can.
“Academic decision as to where students should have lectures are not in the remit of the SRC to determine, it is in the remit of the academic board of the school and not even some management members are able to influence academic board and that’s why the SRC having heard that have decided to run the shuttle system.”
“Previously we were running in it just Osu but now we’ve added Dzorwulu and we are working on even getting other transportation in addition to the SRC shuttles that we have in order to make it transportation very easy for everyone,” he told UniversNews.
Ishmael Nii Lantey Lantey added that management’s decision was however was made to suit the best interest of the institution.
He, however, urged all concerned students to make it a point to attend lectures despite the inconveniences.
The students resumed on Monday, June 14, 2021, for the second semester of the 2020/2021 academic year.
The Institute has adopted a blended approach in undertaking academic activities, such that, it will be a combination of both online and physical class activities.
Students have been informed that only students who register for their courses will be admitted to lectures.
Sunday, 20th June 2021 has been announced as the deadline for the period of regular registration.
Late registration with a penalty for all students, including retake and amnesty, will begin from Monday, 21st June 2021, to Sunday, 4th July 2021.
