MUBAS Conducts Stakeholder Consultative Meetings
The meetings took place in all regions in the country, as the development process has reached the stakeholder’s consultation stage which is an important activity which will enable the university to be relevant.
Speaking during one of the meetings in Blantyre, the Acting Vice Chancellor Associate Professor Nancy Chitera explained that the main agenda was to engage the stakeholders on their expectations on the fully fledged MUBAS and also what it needs to change in order to meet the needs of the industry.
“We are looking at this Strategic Plan development process as an opportunity to collectively, with our stakeholders, review what has been our past, reckoning with the present and planning for the future,” said Associate Professor Chitera.
Later, the Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor Associate Professor Betchani Tchereni made a presentation on the MUBAS Strategic Plan.
The floor was then opened for the stake holders present to comment, question and make recommendations on how the Strategic Plan should be projected in order to fulfill its intended purpose.
The meeting was attended by representatives from MBC, Waterboard, EGENCO, MTL, ICAM and other corporate organisations.
When closing, the Acting Vice Chancellor thanked the attendees for their contributions which she said were insightful.
