The Inter-faculty Lectures Series
Publications are essential requirements of Faculty Members of all institutions of higher learning, and the University for Development Studies (UDS) is no exception. The Inter-faculty Lectures (IFLs) offer the opportunity for older, younger and/or newly recruited Members of the academic fraternity to present their research findings for peer review in order for them to improve their competencies in carrying out research and writing papers. This is the reason why CCEIR of UDS over the years has created this platform as an opportunity for academics and other staff of the university to share and expand knowledge through the presentation of papers. The UDS/CCEIR Inter-faculty Lecture Series has since been organised every year. It is hosted by the various campuses on rotational basis (i.e. from one campus to the other) after the maiden edition on the Wa Campus in 2007. These important lectures have helped a number of participants to fine tune their papers for publication in reputable journals across the world. It has also offered the opportunity to up and coming researchers to publish their work in the CCEIR Working Papers. These outcomes among others have been the motivation for CCEIR and UDS to continue to organise these presentations.
