University Hall I Administration and JCRC Undertake Study Visit to KNUST, University of Energy and Natural Resources - Sunyani

In an effort to enhance the administrative and operational strategies of its newly converted hall of residence, a delegation of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) embarked on an insightful study visit to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in June 13, 2024. This strategic initiative was organized by the pioneer Council of University Hall I, under the direction of the Vice-Chancellor, to draw from the rich experiences of well-established halls at KNUST.

The delegation from UENR comprised a diverse group of stakeholders, including the Hall Council, Hall Assistants, administrative staff, finance staff, and the newly elected Junior Common Room Council (JCRC) executive board along with their appointees. Their mission was to glean practical knowledge and best practices from the hall administrators of KNUST, specifically the esteemed Unity Hall (Continentals) and University Hall (Katanga).

The visiting team was warmly received by the Hall Councils of Unity Hall and University Hall. The visit featured a series of focused meetings, each tailored to the specific roles and responsibilities of the participants. 

A highlight of the visit was the team’s observation of a Senior Common Room (SCR) meeting at Katanga, involving the appointed fellows of the hall. This session provided a unique perspective on engaging senior university members in hall administration, underscoring the importance of their involvement in fostering a vibrant residential community.

Mr. Johnson Degraft Ankamah, the Hall Master of University Hall I, who led the UENR delegation, expressed his appreciation for the invaluable learning opportunity. “The trip has undoubtedly shed more light on how University Hall I can develop its own traditions and operational strategies, essential for establishing a solid foundation for the hall’s future,” he remarked. He also extended his gratitude to Dr. R. Avugla of Unity Hall and Dr. Y. E. Ayekple of University Hall, along with their teams of Hall tutors and administrative staff, for their warm hospitality and the wealth of knowledge shared.

The study visit marks a significant step in University Hall I’s journey towards creating a dynamic and well-managed residential experience for its students, leveraging the proven frameworks and traditions of KNUST’s established halls.
