Mrs. Deborah Afful also acknowledged the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) astuteness personnel normally bring on board for speedy administration of office duties. “Management of the University holds you in high esteem, because of the work that the National Service Personnel do for us. We may not be able to pay you deservedly but we sincerely appreciate your support, your time and the resources you make available”.

Mr. Darkoh also impelled NSP to be confidential in administering their duties. “This University is such that we hold a lot of private information on individuals and the whole University. It is not your duty, the fact that you receive letters to inform other persons about it. The information we give you, keep them confidential”.
He cautioned personnel who have been assigned to assist lecturers as Teaching Assistants not to teach the students. “You are not lecturers, you are there to assist. Some Departments like biology, chemistry, and home economics are practical in orientation. Therefore, you’re there to set the laboratory and make sure that the chemicals are put in the right places. If you teach and something happens, you do so at your own risk,” he said.
The orientation saw presentations from resource persons namely Mrs. Irene-Michelle Ofosu-Behome (Senior Assistant Registrar and Manageress of Simpa Hall) and Ms. Patricia Kaitoo (Employee Relations Officer at DHR), who took personnel through the role of NSP in UEW and settling in for work at UEW respectfully.
Personnel were allowed to ask questions and appropriate answers were given accordingly.
