'Reputation built on quality'

USP has grown from strength to strength since its inception 45 years ago and has successfully fulfilled its social, economic and political obligations to the Pacific and Fiji.

These were the words of the Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu while addressing thousands of high school students at the USP open day at Katonivere Grounds in Labasa yesterday.

"If you look around, all government departments, statutory bodies, regional and international organisations and private sectors in Fiji have USP graduates in leadership positions," he said.

"USP has built its reputation on quality of leadership, academic staff and subsequently the quality of programs.

"It is this quality that provides a driving force that impacts the future of the students.

"The government has continued to encourage all civil servants to improve their qualifications with the intention that a well-qualified workforce will be able to deliver excellent services to the people.

"USP might just be the university to help the government with this drive."

Students from all over Vanua Levu at the open day took advantage of the educational displays and had the opportunity to enquire more about their career paths.

Mr Bolalevu added the university continued to play a major role in the development of human resources in the Northern Division.

"Over the years, the office of the Commissioner Northern Division has developed a strengthened relationship with the USP.

"The university has always been a very important partner in terms of development of human resources, especially at management level."
