The Director for the University of Goroka (UOG) Sepik Campus (soon to be established as Somare University of Agriculture Rural Science & Technology or SUART), Mrs Lena Gibson said their first cohort of 21 graduates would be an asset to any organization who is looking for a strong person to get the job done.

“This is because they are trained in a tough environment and were exposed to field practice and working with the communities throughout their study period.

“They were able to cope with the struggles, adapt and focus on their purpose of being here which is to complete their studies, and they did,” she said.Mrs Gibson said that has put the soon graduates on the spot to use the theories they’ve learnt to use and build their flexibility and confidence in working with farmers at the ward level.

If you are looking for an extension officer who can work well with the people, I have no doubt these soon to be graduates have the experience and knowledge to do the job for you”, Mrs Gibson said.

The UOG Sepik Campus enrolled 35 students for their first cohort in 2021. Out of these, 21 students, 18 males and three (3) females have successfully completed their studies and acquired their Diploma in Agriculture Science recently.

Mrs Gibson thank and appreciate the efforts of the industrial training service providers to their first cohort; the Maprik District Development Authority (DDA) and Kokonas Indastri Koperesen (KIK) Sepik region.

“You have made it possible for them to complete their study program requirement which is the industrial practice and are now ready to graduate on merit.

“I’d like to also appreciate the efforts of my four teaching staff members and stakeholders for a successful completion and graduation of our pioneer students.Mrs Gibson said they need more support from government and stakeholders for program continuity in this satellite campus.

Meanwhile, she said Sepik Campus is looking forward to incorporate rural development and teaching program as well in the near future but that depends on the stakeholders assessment and decision.
