The citation was presented to Dr. Agyepong by the Dean of FICS, Dr. Modestus Fosu, at a departmental meeting held on January 10, 2022, at the Ringway Campus of the Institute.
Presenting the citation, Dr. Modestus Fosu, praised Dr. Agyepong for her outstanding job leading the Department of Communication Studies, arguably the largest and most diverse Department in the Faculty of Integrated Communication Sciences. He also encouraged the members of the Department to support the new Head of Department, Dr. Ebo Afful, who has taken over from Dr. Agyepong.
On her part, Dr. Lawrencia Agyepong thanked all members of the Department for their support during her tenure as HoD. She said, “this is a difficult department, but at the same time, they are delightful people, and I have enjoyed working with every single person in the Department”.
During her tenure as HoD, the Department grew from a skeletal staff of six (6) to eleven (11) full-time lecturers. In addition, she supervised the development and accreditation of new undergraduate and graduate programs for the Department. Dr. Agyepong also secured external partnerships with major local and international organisations such as DW-Akademie, Ghana National Commission for UNESCO and Penplusbytes during her tenure.
