A past president of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV) has emerged president of the Alumni Association of the Faculty of Environmental Design and Management (EDM) Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The association was formally inaugurated last week at the sidelines of Alumni Reunion of the faculty under the chairmanship of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, ably represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration), Professor Chris Ajila.
The Vice-Chancellor in his opening remark said in the vision to develop the university into the incubator for national policy research and development, there are many areas where the Alumni can assist.
He said “Your contribution to the University endowment fund initiating developmental project, maintenance of existing infrastructure, student internship, industrial experience and job placement, scholarship and research grants are some of the numerous ways you can add value to the university”.
Ogunbodede asserted that with our collective efforts, we could take the Faculty and the University at large to an enviable position in the committee of schools of built environment and environmental design and management both locally and internationally.
