The University of Lagos, UNILAG, has disclosed that it will begin its 50th convocation ceremonies for the 2016/2017 academic session on February 19.
The institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, disclosed this on the sidelines of the yearly interaction with newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos.
He however said the four-day convocation activities, which would end on February 22 would be slightly adjusted, and would be different from those of the past.
“This time, we will make a few changes and introduce a few items to make the ceremonies lively and memorable.
“For instance, the convocation venue will move from the usual multi-purpose hall known as Jelili Omotola Hall to the main auditorium known as Ade Ajayi Hall.
“But we will soon come up with a line-up of events to kick-start the convocation.
“The events normally begin with a convocation media briefing, followed by the convocation lecture, among others,” the vice-chancellor said.
Mr Ogundipe, professor, explained that the university management would also ensure a rebranding of the institution, especially in the area of research, innovation, incubation and entrepreneurship.
