Registration and orientation for undergraduate students at Divine Word University (DWU) in Madang began yesterday for the 2015 academic year.
New intakes will be the first to register, followed by resuming students today.
The campus has been abuzz with the arrival of students over the last few days for the new academic year. The 2015 academic year’s theme is “Core values and research underpin our search for quality”.
With the emphasis on DWU’s core values and research, president of the University, Father Jan Czuba is optimistic that 2015 will be another fruitful year for the institution to build on its achievements.
Speaking to staff during their orientation a fortnight ago, Father Czuba spoke about DWU not resting on its laurels but striving to do more.
“To be successful we need to be driven by [a] clear vision, a purpose, by a belief; to be motivated by the core values,” said Father Czuba.
The academic year will be formally launched on Friday morning. It will begin with a traditional welcome mass led by Catholic Archbishop of Madang Stephen Reichert.
Minister for Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology, Malakai Tabar will attend.
