One thou­sand, five hun­dred and ninety-nine stu­dents will be grad­u­at­ing from the Univer­sity of the South Pa­cific to­mor­row. This will make them the high­est num­ber of grad­u­ates in any grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony in the univer­sity’s his­tory.

USP Vice-Chan­cel­lor, Pro­fes­sor Ra­jesh Chan­dra said aca­demic ex­cel­lence is the cor­ner­stone of any good univer­sity. “Trans­for­ma­tion from good to ex­cel­lent is the cen­tral theme of our strate­gic plan. I be­lieve that an in­sti­tu­tion is only as great as its peo­ple. “The Univer­sity has set a record of be­ing an ex­am­ple and re­spon­si­ble in­sti­tu­tion, more so be­cause of our dy­namic stu­dents and staff,” he said. Pro­fes­sor Chan­dra said the key fo­cus of the univer­sity had been to en­sure greater ac­ces­si­bil­ity of their pro­grammes and cour­ses in or­der to en­able all stu­dents to pur­sue their higher education dreams, re­gard­less of time and dis­tance.

“Ac­cred­i­ta­tion is what dif­fer­en­ti­ates us most from other ter­tiary and higher education providers in the re­gion. That is why em­ploy­ers value us and the rea­son we are the first choice for stu­dents, par­ents and the Govern­ment,” he said. Edited by Jonathan Bryce
