Speaking at the start of the seminar held today, Monday, November 20, at the university gymnasium, Dr. Gonzales said the orientation will enable the new personnel to better relate with the organization, its management, their peers and especially students. He said their one-day training will make them effective in contributing to the institution’s attainment of its vision, mission and goals.
With so many personnel, Dr. Gonzales noted, WMSU is the biggest employer in the city and region of the community’s “best and brightest people”. He said the university’s top-notched teachers is what makes WMSU “a great institution today.”
He said the continuing increase in WMSU’s student population also requires corresponding addition of new faculty personnel, which is now over 800.
