At the University of Ghana, world-class research and high quality teaching and learning takes place across the broadest possible range of disciplines. From the Humanities to Basic and Applied Sciences. Health Sciences and to Education, this is an institution that has, for many years, set the pace for its peers in Ghana, in the sub-region, and at the continental level.

As Vice-Chancellor, I am determined to build on our well-established position as a highly-sought university to become one of the very best centres of teaching and research. We have a bold strategy amplified in our Strategic Plan, to take us to 2024, which is based on a re-defined vision to become a world-class research-intensive university over the next decade.

We have succeeded in creating a multi-cultural environment and multi-disciplinary academic environment that enables us stand out not only as the premier University in Ghana, but ranked very high in global rankings.
