National University of Samoa appoints new Deputy Vice Chancellor responsible for Corporate Services

The National University of Samoa has appointed a new Deputy Vice Chancellor following a decision to split Corporate Affairs from Academics and Research.

The idea was to ensure both parts of the university would be attended to carefully by having a deputy vice chancellor sitting at each role.

“It’s good to have more people working at making things work in our university because it gets the job done and to appoint a new DVC it means that our financial side, including things like university supplies and student management will get the attention it needs as well,” said NUS Vice Chancellor Fui Leapai Ilaoa Asofou Soo.

“This is why the council of NUS headed by the Pro Chancellor have decided that we needed two Deputy Vice Chancellors in order to achieve this goal,” he added.

The newest member of the NUS family is former Miss Samoa and Miss South Pacific, Sheree Moors will head the Corporate Services as the second Deputy Vice Chancellor, while Peseta Dr. Desmond Lee Hang heads the Academics and Research.

“It’s what NUS needed, to have two separate DVC’s to look after these two functions. We should expect very big changes now that we have Sheree on board,” added the VC.

For the new DVC, she says the appointment is a blessing to her teaching career.

“It’s a hard task and I won’t take it lightly because of all my years working with NUS and with Vice Chancellor Asofou, I’ve come to understand how important it is to be able to secure the needs of the university and I’ll give it all my best,” she said.

Meanwhile, late enrolment week has begun with NUS expecting a very low registration into its Foundation program.

“We have lifted the criteria for entering foundation. What we need is quality students and so we are pushing towards having higher academic recognition by making sure we invest in the best,” said Asofou.

The concern though is where the rest of the students who would have made it into foundation studies with the former criteria, would go.

“We have other programs here at NUS that they may find suitable and working from those they can eventually earn their way up to the top as well. So we’re not neglecting anyone. Our doors are still open for those interested to study at NUS,” said the VC. LoopSamoa
