The Pioneer Principal Investigator

She was the PI of the Gender Mainstreaming Programme from 2007, until her retirement in September, 2011. She rose through the ranks to become a Professor of Communication and Language Arts. She also served the University in many capacities- the first female to rise to the post of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), University of Ibadan.

Appointment of a New Focal Person
Consequent upon the retirement of the founding Principal Investigator, Professor Abiola Odejide, the need for a new Focal Person became urgent. Prof. Stella Odebode, a Professor in the Department of Agricultural Extension and Rural Development was appointed by the Vice Chancellor based on the strong recommendations made by the founding PI and the significant contributions she has made to the progress of the programme. With effect from December, 2011 she assumed the position of the Focal Person of the Gender Mainstreaming Programme, University of Ibadan.

Gender Policy

Gender Policy (GP)
 
Gender equity is increasingly prioritized as an indicator of development and global acceptance in networks of higher education. The quality and effectiveness of an institution is, in part, judged by its gender sensitivity at global level. U I’s Gender Policy provides an institutional framework for all programmes and projects so that all stakeholders in the community can benefit from the initiative. It provides the bench- mark by which the laws governing the institution, relations between members of the university community, its activities in research, teaching, resource mobilization, welfare services and community involvement will be evaluated.
