Pro Vice-Chancellor’s welcome

Dear Students,

On behalf of the Vice-Chancellor, I bring you warm felicitations.

At UPSA, you are not just students. You are part of the close-knit community that will support you achieve your vision. Together, Management, Faculty, student leadership are focused on effective teaching and learning, your success and exceptional experiences amidst the COVID-19 pandemic era.

Your adherence to the COVID-19 protocols during the First Semester of the 2020/2021 Academic Year provided a safe environment for teaching and learning in the University community, and Management wishes to commend you for your cooperation.

Lectures for the Second Semester of the 2020/2021 Academic Year commences Monday, May 1(), 2021, and Management has put in place the needed measures to ensure that returning students have a pleasant experience on campus, this, we believe is a shared responsibility.

I wish to use this opportunity to remind you of the following:


Under the current circumstances of COVID-19, we will continue ensuring a strict adherence to all COVID19 preventive protocols already in force on campus. The virtual and in-person alternation of teaching and learning will continue.


All students are encouraged to adhere strictly to the dress code as prescribed in the students’ handbook, available at the University library, all departmental offices, the SRC office, the UPSA website, as well as the UPSA Facebook page.

The dress and grooming requirements for both men and women should always be modest, neat, clean and not distracting, but consistent with the dignity of scholarship and professionalism. Sleeveless, revealing or form-fitting clothes will not be allowed on campus. All students who enter campus must have neat hairstyles/cuts and must avoid extreme hairstyles/cuts and colors. Any student who is improperly dressed shall be sanctioned in accordance with the University’s regulations.

Students are encouraged to acquaint themselves with the registration procedures to avoid any challenges. Where in doubt, please reach out to your department or faculty officers for assistance.

Once again, on behalf of the Management of this University, I warmly welcome you to campus. I wish you every measure of success.

Thank you.

Kindest regards,

Prof. Charles Barnor
