USP Vice Chancellor and ethics (13 April 2014)
The public would have been pleased to hear the appeal by the USP Vice Chancellor (Professor Rajesh Chandra) to the USP graduands to make “an unshakable commitment to having high ethical standards in everything they did” (The Fiji Times, 12 April, 2014).
The Chairman of USP Council (Mr Ikbal Janif) has also made such praiseworthy calls over the years as Chairman and Acting Chairman of USP Council.
In the interests of transparency, good governance and accountability (all part of USP’s Mission and Vision statements) could the USP Vice Chancellor and the Chairman of USP Council therefore inform the USP Member Governments, the tax-payers of Fiji and the USP region, what exactly were the circumstances which led to the recent resignation of Professor Susan Kelly (Deputy Vice Chancellor at USP), at great financial cost to the University and taxpayers?
