Professor Will Meet With All Deans

The acting vice-chancellor for the Fiji National University, Professor Ian Rouse will meet the deans of all colleges for an update on the programmes and staffing.

Professor Ian Rouse said he would discuss the university facilities and staffing to provide the best for students.

“We need to ensure that we have the right staff. All the facilities are ready and will the students are welcomed with enthusiasm into the New Year,” he said.

“Next week I would be meeting all the deans and head of properties to make sure that we have enough spaces in the lecture rooms and the facilities and we have enough staff and are all ready to go.”

Professor Rouse said staffing at any university was important.

“The staff needs to be valued and respected for the work they do so there would be changes and things that I would be doing as an acting vice-chancellor just to make the people feel valued.”

In terms of the lectures and professors at the university, Professor Rouse said there were gaps in the senior level.

“There are some areas where we do need staff particularly the senior level, in the college of medicine we had a few vacancies that need to be field, in engineering we are trying to really push in for this area as it is critically important for Fiji,” he said.

“In business I am pretty sure we need senior appointments like accounting and economics and so on.”

Most of the senior positions were advertised and Professor Rouse is already working with the Human Resources to recruit the staff.

“I have really flagged that next week I need to meet with all the deans and they need to articulate what are their needs and as an acting vice-chancellor I would be doing what I can to make the process of recruitment as quickly as possible.”
