Don't Exchange Sex For Academic Favours | UEW Vice Chancellor Tells Students

Professor Mawutor Avoke, the Vice Chancellor of University of Education, Winneba has called on students to resist any temptation to exchange sex for academic favours and cautioned them not to engage in unhealthy social relationships and avoid taking needless risks.

He made this call at the recent matriculation ceremony held at the Asante-Mampong to officially welcome newly admitted students to the College of Agriculture Education, University of Education, Winneba (UEW).

Out of the 1,112 qualified students admitted, 896 met the registration deadline and were made up of 687 males and 209 females.

The Vice Chancellor described as encouraging the number of women admitted to pursue various programmes but pointed out that, it would have been ideal if it had been “a 50:50 enrolment ratio for male and female”.

He reminded the students to make profitable use of their undergraduate years at the university, saying the period should be used to cultivate a life that would reflect in their future endeavours – the kind of intellectual, moral, ethical and professional foundation laid.

He also told them to become “scientifically literate to participate in a world where the advantages and limitations of science and technology will be critical topics of public debate throughout your lives”.

They needed “to sharpen their quantitative reasoning skills to be successful in today’s world”, he added.

Prof Avoke again asked that they took advantage of the opportunity offered them by the university to broaden their outlook and expand their understanding of society to enable them acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to launch their professional careers as teachers, educationists and researchers.

Additionally, they should practice good hygiene and exercise, something he said, “would enable them to have the mind to learn and achieve as scholars”.
