Business Information Technology program and it’s relevance, the Sexual Harassment Policy and the process for online course registration.  The last day of orientation included Dr. Okantey discussing International Affairs and the potential for international student exchanges with OSU as well as international internships in the US and UK with various organizations.  Mrs. Benedicta Ashiagbor and Mrs. Beth Okantey shared about the importance and availability of counseling and support at Palm Institute. 

 

ACADEMIC SERVICES VIRTUAL TRAINING

On February 4th, the staff, faculty and leadership of Palm Institute attended a training presented by Mr. Emmanuel Ntow from Ashesi University on Academic Services.  The training was designed to equip staff and faculty with providing students exceptional academic advising to guarantee their success throughout the four years at Palm Institute.  He encouraged the staff and faculty to engage and build relationships with the students to get to know them and their individual needs, strengths and goals; be accessible and support and empower them through any concerns or challenges.  Mr. Ntow shared various advisory approaches as well depending on the individual student.
