FIG. 1: ORGANIZATION STRUCTURE OF TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT (b) How staffs are involved in the decision-making process and in general administration
The department holds regular departmental meetings at intervals to take decisions on issues affecting it. Membership at these meetings includes the Head of’ Department as Chairman, all academic staff and administrative staff. On a seasonal basis, officers are appointed to oversee and coordinate essential aspects of the departmental affairs such as exams, lecture time tables, students’ industrial training, accreditation, curriculum and student affair postgraduate programme etc.
Policy and Practice on Staff Development
The University encourages all members of staff to improve their academic standing. The academic staff are encouraged to pursue their postgraduate studies (M.Tech.,M.Sc, PhD) on study leave with pay. The University also gives financial support when necessary to aid the speedy completion of such programmes. This actually accounted for (6) departmental academic staff completing their PhD within four years, that is, 2005-2009. About four (4) academic staff are about completing their programmes as indicated on their progress reports from their respective institutions of study.
Similarly the University gives financial support to staff to attend Learned/Professional Conferences whenever such demands are being made. For instance, two academic staff went to Mauritius this year for Conference and Annual general meeting of Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). Similarly, five of our full time academic staff are Chartered members while many are in various degree of completion.
The system of Annual Staff Review Exercise adopted by the University allows staff to be assessed annually for salary increment and promotion. The Departmental Review Committee forwards its recommendations to the Faculty Review Committee for discussions and. onward transmission to the University Appointment and Promotion Committee for final approval.
This system enables the Faculty to monitor staff progress annually and for the departmental review committee to provide the advice as at when due.
(a) Handling of Academic Grievances
There is a standing organizational body of the students known as the Student’s Chapter of Association of Transport Management Students which is a subsidiary of the national body. This body is there to protect students’ (ATMAS) interest under the supervision, of their staff adviser who is an academic staff of the department. There are two ways in which students can channel their academic grievances. These are either through their staff adviser or through their level advisors who are primarily academic advisors who must have been with them from their first year up to the point of graduation. It is these two sets of people that are to keep the Head of Department informed on the students’ grievances especially when they cannot handle such depending on the nature of grievance. The advisors mayor may not forward the complaint to the Head of Department However, such records and actions taken are documented for easy reference. Serious cases are referred to the Dean and sometimes to the Faculty Board Committee on discipline.
The lecturers, who are the internal examiners are responsible for setting and marking of the exam questions. for the courses taught by them. The Head of Department who is the Chief examiner ensures proper conduct of exams as well s the security and internal moderation of question papers and marked scripts. External examiners are also engaged to evaluate and moderate the questions for each exam. After marking and collation, the results are compiled and grades forall courses offered are sentto the.
Departmental Board of Examiners for consideration. The recommendations of the Departmental Board are forwarded to the Faculty Board of Examiners. The Faculty Board further recommends the results to Committee of Deans and finally to the Senate for final approval.
In order to maintain an atmosphere conducive for exchange of ideas and interaction amongst students, the department has on ground. the students’ Chapter of the Association of Transport Management students (ATMAS) under the supervision of the staff adviser who is an academic staff in the department.
This association normally organizes excursions to notable Transport firms, Port Authority, etc. A week is usually allocated to the body in a session to have special programmes.
