What Are Inaugural Lectures?

An inaugural lecture is an occasion of significance in an academic staff member's career at the National Open University of Nigeria - NOUN.

The Purpose of an Inaugural Speech

Inaugural lectures provide newly appointed professors with the opportunity to inform colleagues, the campus community and the general public of their work to date, including current research and future plans. Professors are usually required to give their inaugural lecture within 12 months of their appointment.

Inaugural lectures are a ceremonial occasion, and academic robes are worn by the inaugural professor and the rest of the platform party. Those attending the lecture do not wear academic robes. ( Source )

  1. I am around of NOUN because its give hope to working class people to study while learning at the same time.But my problem with noun is a department call EXAM AND RECORD. Let every department have autonomy to examine his/her student.

    Secondly, if the VC received a list of graduation student he should approve it immediately and also give all departments directive to issues out statements of result to the graduating students pending went the Senate will site to rectified such result
