The acting director, alumni relations of the University of Calabar, Dr. Dorn-Cklaimz Enamhe says he hopes to instill in alumni of the institution, the culture of giving back to the place that molded them.
Enamhe who was appointed in the new position on January 20th to, among others, serve as the liason between the institution and it’s alumni to promote the course of the University, told CrossRiverWatch in a message that he had met some relevant stakeholders to kick-start his journey – a first in the history of the institution which was founded in 1975.
One of Enamhe’s task is to create and maintain a database of alumni of the institution. To achieve this and more, he directed that alumni forward, in this format, – name, e-mail address and phone number to 09132761182.
He further issued a statement seeking the support of all alumni to impact positively on the “image, content and infrastructure,” of the institution.
He said he will, within the first few weeks, visit existing alumni chapters to “identify areas of concern, strength and opportunity,” to grow them and build on that.
“Firstly, I thank the management of my alma mater led by a fellow Alumni, Professor Florence Obi for the opportunity to connect ourselves across the globe with a view to positioning the University to compete favorably on a global scale.
“Secondly, the job description is one that will require the inputs of everyone who has passed through the University of Calabar since its inception in 1975 – everyone means, every Malabite and Malabress in every social strata known to humanity.
“Thirdly, as I resume today, I will spend the first couple of weeks reaching out to existing Alumni chapters to identify areas of concern, strength and opportunity to develop programs that will impact positively on the institution’s image, content and infrastructure. There are so many of us who are yet to identify with the institution for different reasons, that will change.
“Fourthly, with the help of everyone, we will develop a strong team that shall be a model for others to follow with the first of events likely to be a homecoming for all, wherever they are to first, celebrate ourselves and then ponder on challenges and successes so far while charting a great course for our Alma Mater. We are going to think UNICAL for UNICAL by developing a culture of giving back to the place that shaped us,” the statement read.
On contributing to the office, he urged alumni to reach out to the institution for more details
