Ogundipe said his administration will focus on the six-point agenda to improve the foundation laid by the past Vice Chancellors.
Speaking at a thanksgiving service on Sunday, November 12, Ogundipe said his administration will focus on improved welfare, branding, relevance, ranking, entrepreneurship and research to improve the foundation laid by the past Vive Chancellors.
“The University of Lagos will definitely witness a change of direction. It will go from glory-to-glory. The foundation laid by its past vice-chancellors is solid enough to build on and move the institution forward.
“We want to make the university locally and globally relevant through our students and graduates. We are going to make soft skills training available for them to be established and relevant.
“Also, we want to internationalise this institution. We want to make the rating of UNILAG higher than what it is now through research, innovation, incubation and entrepreneurship.
“We want to open the windows to solving local problems in the country vis-a-vis research, environmental, societal, even politically and economically.
“We are going to look into the branding and brand equity of the university and all that will make UNILAG remain a university of the first choice.”
Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe was appointed Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos on Friday, October 27 and assumed office on Monday, November 13.
