Some students of the University of Health and Allied Sciences, UHAS, have threatened to sue the school over changes in academic engagement which they say has adversely affected them.

Disclosing this in an interview, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS), Prof. John Owusu Gyapong said legal tussles have been begun by two groups of students adding that he finds difficult to understand their motive as the university cannot be blamed for creating COVID-19.

According to him, the university is doing its best to make sure students are not left to their fate during these uncertain times, hence the introduction of an e-learning platform to facilitate academic work.

“We’re in unusual times and if I may even broaden the issue, we’ve had instances of some of our students threatening to sue the university because they claim they did not sign on for this and that we’re shortchanging them. I’m aware that at least two groups of students have initiated some processes,” he disclosed.

He added that “These are unusual times and therefore when we are in unusual times, there is the need for us to do the best that we can to curb the situation. We did not create COVID-19, we’re doing our best to ensure that we manage under the circumstances. So some of the lessons we are learning is also to ensure that we incorporate all these things in our students’ handbooks and incorporate them in our legal documents, our statues and all that as and when necessary.”

The VC noted that UHAS students will not be assessed online due to the nature of the courses they run but urged students to be ready to make any adjustments to the academic calendar due to the havoc caused by the pandemic.
