Albany State University Visit to Imo State Polytechnic Umuagwo March 2019 3:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Today, Mrs Nneka Nora Osakwe (PhD) in her visit to Imo State polytechnic Umuagwo clearly stated that the collaboration between The Albany State University and Imo State Polytechnic is aimed at creating outstanding quality Education, adopting academic support and excellence between the two institutions. This includes exchange of staff and students, collaborative academic programmes using online learning, research and many more.

Before then, the Rector Rev Fr. Wence Madu said the opening prayer and welcomed Mrs Nneka Nora Osakwe(PhD) to the institution. Professor Onyeka in his remark highlighted that the use of ICT cannot be over-emphasized in today’s Learning, He went ahead to introduce Mrs Nneka Nora Osakwe before inviting her up to the stage.

This collaboration between these two institutions is also aimed at creating new opportunities for our students with the aid of Edu Technology. International collaborations like this can be considered a major strength for the State Polytechnic.

Significant investment have gone into the campus infrastructure in order to get the State Polytechnic abreast with other academic institutions in other developed countries where online Learning is utilized well.

No More Troubles! Oguzie Assures Imo Poly March 2019 12:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Harmonious and friendly interaction is the prime ingredient that ensures peaceful coexistence between corporate entities and their host communities. When friendly interaction is sustained both parties can have the indices of growth and development afforded by the intermingling of symbiotic goodwill. But when the relationship is everything but friendly, retardation or total absence of growth and progress becomes the result at hand. Regrettably, longstanding, solidly built friendship can be toppled if oppressive political culture, greed, avarice, and hatred are allowed to infiltrate and pollute the system. 
Fortunately, the Management of Imo State Polytechnic and the leadership of the host community have demonstrated a rare charisma in managing the situation that reared its head in the past to continue to maintain the harmonious relationship that has long existed between both parties. And being fully aware of its importance, stakeholders have not let the mantra of peace and harmony depart their lips. It was sung louder and with a rather strident voice at the 36th matriculation ceremony of the Polytechnic on December 4, 2015, when the Traditional Ruler of Umuagwo Autonomous Community, His Royal Highness, Eze Anthony Oguzie reassured the Management of the Polytechnic that Umuagwo, the host community to the Polytechnic is committed to the continuance of the cordial relationship existing between Imo State Polytechnic and Umuagwo community. 
The Royal Father who declaimed his word like a chief masquerade stressed that the people of Umuagwo are a peace-loving people.

IMOPOLY Signs MoU with Albany State University, Georgia USA January 2019 3:04 AM - 2:06 PM

Creating new opportunities for our youth through Technology, Education and International collaboration can be considered a major strength for the current administration of Imo State Polytechnic. In recent months, there has been significant investment in campus infrastructure in order to put IMOPOLY at par with similar academic institutions in the developed world. The campus facelift is indeed vital as the Polytechnic begins to compete at the International stage.

Today, Dr Rajeev Parikh, Interim Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs and the President of Albany State University in Georgia USA Marion Fedrick, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Rector of Imo State Imo State Polytechnic Umuagwo, Rev. Fr. (Dr) Wence Madu CMF. This MoU is aimed at fostering academic cooperation between the two institutions, including exchange of staff and students, collaborative academic programmes leveraging online learning, research and much more.

In an interview with the Rector, the tireless maverick said that ‘IMOPOLY is now is now commanding respect from well-respected academic institutions in Europe and America and this is a testament to the hard work and sacrifice of the members of staff of the Polytechnic’. He further explained that this MoU will pave a way for our youth to benefit from the same quality of education that is being offered by Albany State University in the United States of America. He lamented on the decline of our educational system in the past years but expressed his optimism that IMOPOLY is certainly turning things around.

Dr Donald Mbamah, who is leading this collaboration also expressed his delight at what he considered the ‘the beginning of great things’ for Imo State and Nigeria at large.

Further details of this MoU will be outlined in subsequent publication.
