Ethical call for USP graduates

Torika Tokalau
Saturday, April 12, 2014

THE 1285 USP graduates were urged to make an "unshakable commitment to having high ethical standards" in everything they did by university vice chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra yesterday.

Prof Chandra said this was the beginning of a new journey, with endless opportunities.

"It is a big moment for our graduates. You've all worked very hard and your families are all very proud of you," Prof Chandra said.

"I also remind graduates that as you celebrate the end of your journey, you must start thinking of a new beginning and a new beginning is always full of possibilities.

"Your thirst for knowledge, skills and competency should continue. Commit yourself to life-long learning and keep yourself relevant, useful and satisfied."

Prof Chandra also acknowledged 17 graduates who were from non-member USP countries, including four from PNG.

He said the graduates came from 24 nationalities, testifying not only the regional but international character of the university.
