University of Goroka’s Promised Government Funding Still an Outstanding Issue

The University of Goroka has plans to expand the capacity of the Institution.

Vice Chancellor, Professor Musawe Sinabare, announced this yesterday in Port Moresby.

He also revealed that the promised Government funding of eight million kina is still an outstanding issue, as consultation with Treasury Department continues.

Professor Sinabare said UOG has seen a dramatic increase in its enrollment for its programs this year and is now looking at establishing a new campus outside of Goroka town.

According to the heads of the Institution, it is not just infrastructure facilities which are on the key agenda for UOG to develop and improve its capacity. Considerable funding will be allocated to improve its ICT and student learning materials.

Meanwhile, the review of the UOG Student Representative Council is still to be completed.

The University Council will deliberate on the review report, as ethnicity was a contributing factor in last year’s student unrest.

UOG is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, with nearly 800 students to graduate at the end this month.
