Freshman Orientation & Academic Services Training

By Dr. Peter Carlos Okantey | Founder & President

After waiting for so long, we are ecstatic to have our freshmen on campus! The moment has finally come!

On February 1st, 2021, we welcomed our first group of degree students on campus for a three-day orientation. Dr. Peter Carlos Okantey, founder and the president of Palm Institute, commenced the program with a welcome address.  He also shared with the students some of what they can expect at Palm Institute detailing Academic Services which includes the Palm Honor System and Examination Code, Career Services and a community service component of the degree program.  Mr. Ebenezer Pobi, who is a librarian, discussed the usefulness of the library and some of the policies students are expected to follow.  Dr. Okantey shared further about the BSC. 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.
