UTILIZATION OF COMMITTEE SYSTEM IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES

Journal Title: Academic Research International - Year 2013, Vol 4, Issue 4

Abstract

University education is the pinnacle of tertiary educational system where the high level manpower needed to drive every sector of the economy is trained and developed. It is complex in terms of explosive students’ population, curricular structure and diversification, pedagogical mechanism, over-bearing staff strength and administrative system. Because of the university’s noble and extensive responsibilities, the management organs of which the Vice Chancellor and the Senate are most visible adopt a decentralized and all-participative management approach through committee system in order to maximally achieve its objectives. However, most of the committees in Nigerian Universities are fraught with some challenges which sometimes render their activities counterproductive. It is therefore advocated among others that members of the ivory tower who are committed to the vision and mission of the university education should be elected/appointed/selected into the various committees in the system for a collaborative effort in goals attainment.
