UG: Final year Students asked to return home as Hall assistants embark on strike

Some Junior Common Room(JCR) executives here at the University of Ghana have asked a handful of final-year undergraduate students who started reporting to campus today, January 14, 2021, to return home in the meantime.

This directive from the leadership of some JCR came at the time where Hall assistants who are members of the Teachers and Educational Workers' Union (TEWU) at the various hall of residence have decided to embark on an indefinite strike.

Per the academic calendar of the University of Ghana, level 400 resident-students are required to begin reporting to the school from today, Thursday until Sunday, January 17, 2021, for the purpose of their academic work.

Today marks the fourth day since the level 100 students started reporting to campus to complete academic and residential as well as departmental registrations.

It is worth noting that the University of Ghana has resolved to roll out a modular system for the 2020/2021 academic year in a bid to stem the spread of the Coronavirus. According to the system, fresh and final year students will report to school to undertake six-week online teaching and learning starting from January 18, 2021. Meanwhile, continuing students such as level 200 and 300 will follow suit in March this year.
