Speaking to UPSA Media after the week-long visitations, Mr Francis Dadzie noted that it was imperative that the Association recognised the efforts and contributions of its members who were going the extra mile in ensuring that the group grew from strength to strength.
“The backbone of every university is its alumni,” he said. “We are, therefore, committed to ensuring that the IPS/UPSA alumni association becomes as formidable and vibrant as other prominent global alumni groups we know of.”
Mr Dadzie also used the opportunity to call on other alumni of the University who are not currently registered with the Association to do so. Old students are encouraged to contact [email protected] or 0208199881 for information about the UPSA Global Alumni Association.
