In a recent meeting at Oromia State University (OSU), PhD students engaged in a discussion with university leaders. The students openly addressed the challenges they face in the program, highlighting existing and potential shortcomings. They emphasized the need for stronger communication channels and requested increased monitoring and support from the university to navigate these difficulties.

University leaders, led by Dr. Geremu Hulluka, acknowledged the feedback from the students. Dr. Hulluka reassured them that the university is actively following up on their concerns. He emphasized the ongoing efforts to strengthen the PhD program and address the problems raised. He committed to resolving these issues as necessary to ensure a successful learning experience for the students.

This discussion comes 1 year and 6 months after OSU launched its "PhD in Leadership and Management" and "PhD in Development Studies" programs. The university welcomed its first cohort of 12 students, and this meeting signifies their commitment to continuous improvement and student success within the PhD program.
