Fifty-five per cent of the total graduates at the University of the South Pacific graduation ceremony yesterday were females.

883 females of the 1606 students from 20 nationalities graduated with degrees, diplomas and certificates.

The total female graduate number was an increase of one per cent from last year.

Five students graduated with PhDs and 243 graduated from Pacific Technical and Further Education.

USP Vice Chancellor and president Professor Rajesh Chandra said the graduates could become good ambassadors for the university through their strong, innovative, ethical and excellent contribution to society.

“You can become good ambassadors of the university and be role models in your respective countries and importantly live and promote a sense of high integrity and moral values,” he said.

He said that 2016 marks the beginning of a new triennium in the USP Strategic Plan.

“USP will continue to increase its efforts towards the vision of excellence by strengthening the Strategic Plan via continuous monitoring and evaluation to produce the results promised to its leaders, development partners, students and staff,” he said.
