Community Service

The office of Assistant Dean for Training and Community Service liaises with the Center of Community Service and Continuing Education and organizes numerous training courses in several areas utilizing the expertise of qualified academics from the college of Education. Within this collaboration between the office and the center, societal voluntarily initiatives are organized and implemented to materialize the college’s intent to support and build the voluntary capacity of candidates. Therefore, faculty members at the college conducted many training courses, workshops, programs, and services such as lectures, consultancies, field trips, research proposal validations, competitions, publications in refereed journals. The college has also established, through the office, collaborations with other academic institutions.

One of the salient tasks that the office pays special attention to is the qualification and development of working force in the college, be it the academic faculty, administrative, or technical staff. It organizes training courses for them which, in turn, develops their personality skills, administrative skills, or work performance in order to keep pace with the trends in their line of work. As for academicians, the college is keen to develop their learning, teaching, and research skills according to the training needs of each one.

 

The office conducts these tasks by liaising with the Center of Staff Development either in terms of organizing internal training courses, or sending the faculty/staff member abroad to an external training course using the training budget allocated to the college. 

The office of Assistant Dean for Training and Community Service pays equal attention to scholarship for the college faculty and staff to pursue their undergraduate and postgraduate studies. It receives scholarship applications from staff and faculty, reviews them, checks them for meeting scholarship requirements and conditions, and transfers the eligible ones to the Center of Staff Development. The scholarship responsibilities extend to follow up the faculty or staff member on scholarship from the time of their application’s approval until they complete their studies and resume their duties back at the college.
