Call for Applications - PhD Graduate Studentship - Healthier Diets for Healthy Lives Project

 

Project title: Developing evidence and action towards a double-duty food-based policy bundle to ensure healthier diets in Ghana (Healthier Diets for Healthy Lives Project)

 

The Healthier Diets for Healthy Lives (HD4HL) Project is seeking highly qualified individuals to apply for a PhD Studentship tenable at the University of Ghana. The details applicable to the position are provided below.

 

Project Description:

By 2030, non-communicable diseases are predicted to become the leading cause of death in Africa amidst prevailing challenges of infectious diseases, undernutrition, and micronutrient deficiencies. Unhealthy food environments hinder progress in overcoming this double burden of malnutrition. There is increasing evidence for and recognition of the effectiveness of a set of policies that change consumer food environments and enable more nutritious diets. Food systems and public health experts, including the World Health Organisation, refer to them as “Best Buys” for their cost-effectiveness and feasibility for combating the double burden of malnutrition in low- and middle-income countries. Together, these policies aim to inform and empower; guide and influence; incentivize or discourage consumer action within their food environments. These are achieved through bold, and truthful information for all consumers; healthier food availability in public institutions and markets and adjustment of the relative price of foods to equitably promote health and economic value.

 

The HD4HL project aims to build evidence and mobilize multi-stakeholder actions toward developing a policy bundle for healthier and more equitable consumer food environments that reduce the double burden of malnutrition in Ghana. This project is jointly implemented by Ministry of Health, University of Ghana, National Development Planning Commission, Food and Drugs Authority and Coalition of Actors for Public Health Advocacy.

 

PhD Studentship:

The HD4HL Project is seeking to engage well-qualified and highly motivated individuals to undertake cutting-edge research that contributes to the overall objective/ one of the specific objectives of the HD4HL project (for more information please visit: https://www.hd4hl.org).

 

Only applicants currently enrolled in a PhD programme (preferably first year students) at the University of Ghana are eligible to apply. PhD students are expected to be full-time and ready to conduct high-quality research leading to the publication of at least 3 papers in peer-reviewed journals.

 

Benefits:

Selected candidates will receive funding covering research costs, conference attendance, and tuition, where applicable for the duration of the PhD programme.

 

Other Benefits:

· Professional development training and mentoring from HD4HL project team.

· Participation in food environment stakeholder engagement meetings/workshops

 

How to apply:

All applications must include the following information. Applications not containing these documents may not be considered.

 

· A cover letter demonstrating your motivation and suitability for the studentship

· A one-page summary outlining your research interests and how this opportunity may advance your future professional trajectory

· A concise PhD research proposal (four pages maximum) that responds to the HD4HL Project objective.

· A full up-to-date curriculum vitae, including any publications or research output

· Copies of all qualification certificates and academic transcripts

· Names and contact details of at least two referees who have supervised or worked with you, and can speak about your experience and skills

Completed applications should be sent as a single PDF file by email to info@hd4hl.org by May 10th, 2024. Applicants should use the email subject heading: Application for HD4HL PhD Studentship

 

Selection and notification:

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted after the submission deadline for an interview, after which awards will be made.

Event Title: "Seeds of Tomorrow: Cultivating Global Partnerships for Africa's Agricultural Renaissance"

Date: Friday, April 12, 2024

Venue: Hotel Silver Spring, 8727 Colesville Road, Silver Spring, MD, 20910, USA

The West Africa Centre for Crop Improvement (WACCI) is set to host a transformative Stakeholder Engagement Meeting, aptly themed, "Seeds of Tomorrow: Cultivating Global Partnerships for Africa's Agricultural Renaissance." This convening on April 12, 2024, at the Hotel Silver Spring in Maryland, USA, aims to redefine the paradigms of agricultural excellence and resilience in Africa.

Under the stewardship of Professor Eric Yirenkyi Danquah, Founding Director of WACCI, this gathering is ready to spark a new era of agricultural transformation in Africa. The meeting will unveil the vision and strategy for WACCI 3.0, an ambitious phase aimed at strengthening crop resilience and nurturing innovative agricultural practices that ensure food and nutrition security across the continent.

The meeting to be emceed by Pascaline Songsore will commence with opening remarks from Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, followed by a presentation titled, "Why WACCI 3.0?" by Professor Danquah, elucidating the imperative of evolving WACCI’s capabilities and mission in the face of contemporary challenges.

Dr. Robert Bertram, Chief Scientist at the Bureau for Resilience, Environment and Food Security, USAID, will deliver the keynote address, focusing on "Sustainable Partnerships for Strengthening Resilient Food Systems in Africa," a theme that resonates with WACCI’s objectives.

A significant highlight of the meeting is the first conversation on "Funding African Centres of Excellence," led by Dr. Simeon Ehui, Director General of IITA, Nigeria, with framing remarks that will lay the groundwork for discussions. Esteemed speakers for this session include Dr. Agnes Kalibata, President of AGRA; Trina S. Haque, Regional Director for Human Development at the World Bank; and Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, Minister for Education, Ghana. This session aims to explore sustainable funding mechanisms to enhance research and training capacities in African agricultural centers of excellence.

A ceremony acknowledging the transition of leadership within WACCI’s International Scientific Advisory Board will honour Dr. Eugene Terry’s contributions and welcome Emeritus Professor Ronnie Coffman of Cornell University as the new Chair.

The morning session will end with "Concluding Thoughts," featuring insights from Dr. Rob Bertram of USAID, Dr. Cary Fowler, Special Envoy for Global Food Security at the U.S. Department of State, Dr. Aggrey Agumya, Executive Director of FARA and Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, offering a reflective synopsis of the discussions and outlining the strategic path forward for WACCI and its partners.

Afternoon Session: Igniting Agricultural Innovation

The afternoon will unfold with a series of lightning talks, led by experts who will present breakthrough ideas and strategies for agricultural innovation. Topics include the potential of artificial intelligence in agriculture, sustainable value chain development and the genetic improvement of staple crops by Principal Investigators at WACCI among others. Dr. Stephen Kresovich of the Innovation Lab for Crop Improvement (ILCI) will deliver a talk on "Bridge Building for Crop Improvement: Science, Technology and Education," highlighting the nexus of academia and industry in fostering agricultural advancement. Moderated by Teale Yalch of GAIN, USA and Professor Kwame Offei of the University of Ghana, these sessions will showcase innovative approaches and collaborative efforts to enhance food systems in Africa, underlining the importance of resilient, nutritious and productive agricultural development.

With a lineup of distinguished participants from the World Bank, USAID, the U.S. Department of State, Cornell University, AGRA, and other key stakeholders, this Stakeholder Engagement Meeting is poised to be a pivotal event in shaping the future of agricultural development and food security in Africa.

Since its inception in 2007, WACCI has been at the forefront of agricultural innovation in Africa, training over 151 graduate scholars and revolutionizing crop yields through its research. Its efforts have culminated in the release of over 280 improved crop varieties, significantly enhancing the livelihoods of smallholder farmers across Africa.

Community-based person-Centred enhanced care for People Living with HIV/AIDS in Ghana (ExtraCECI)

School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Ghana

 

Research Project Summary

Community-based approaches in tackling HIV/AIDS have prospects of keeping People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) healthy and alive through the delivery of person-centered and holistic care. Task-shifting and decentralising HIV services to community settings in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) has proven to be cost-effective.

The use of person-centred assessment and care delivered by trained healthcare professionals (HCP) has demonstrated a positive effect on self-reported mental health-related QoL and psychosocial well-being. ExtraCECI project aims to improve the quality of life and person-centred outcomes for PLWHA in Ghana.

This is a cluster randomised control trial that will target both cluster and individual participants. It will include (i) a training programme for HCP on person-centred communication, (ii) a holistic assessment of PLWHA’s symptoms and concerns in the domains of physical, psychological, social, and spiritual wellbeing using a structured tool, (iii) a care plan to facilitate collaborative care planning and delivery, (iv) mentorship for HCP and fidelity monitoring.

The ‘Extra’ component for PLWHA is (v) training/sensitising PLWHA to engage, participate and contribute to their care decisions.

DEADLINE : MARCH 30, 2024

 
Thank you.

Venue: Online and Nissan Lecture Theatre, St Antony’s College, Oxford

Dates: 16-17th May, 2024

Organiser: Peter Brooke (peter.brooke@africa.ox.ac.uk)

 

Conference Theme

The conference invites research on the history of radio, television, film and recorded sound in a colonial context. Scholarship on colonial newspapers is now a well-established field but historians have given less attention to broadcast media due, not least, to the methodological challenges of using audio and visual archives. Colonial officials were fascinated by the power of broadcasting as a tool of political control and its potential to project a high-tech vision of colonial rule as modern and permanent. Paradoxically, this often went hand-in-hand with an ethnographic impetus to record, curate and promote ‘traditional’ music and stories. But broadcast media proved unreliable servants of colonial rule thanks to the efforts of subversive voices from within the colonial media machine and, from without, the cross-border flow of contraband records, banned film reels and ‘guerrilla radio’ stations (Lekgoathi et al, 2020). In some localities broadcast media served as much to undermine as to prolong empire.

The scope of the conference is global and invites research on any part of the colonial world defined in the broadest sense, including the European empires, China, Japan and Russia, and settler-colonial societies such as USA. Papers may consider the colonial period itself, the

question of legacy in the post-independence era or coverage of the colonial past in contemporary media. Participants are welcome to interpret the subject of the conference as they wish but the following sub-themes may serve as useful starting points:

· Archives and methodologies.

· Modernity, technology and the ‘colonial sublime’ (Larkin, 2015).

· The state, political control and ‘soft power’.

· Subversive voices, race, gender and liberation.

· Creators and mediators: broadcasters, producers, directors, actors.

· Audiences: local, national and trans-national.

· Music, ethnography and identity.

· Cultural production, drama and language.

· Corporate ownership and ‘control patterns’ (Nyamnjoh, 2005).

 

Format:

Participants are invited to present papers of 20 minutes, which will be grouped into panels of 3-4 papers and followed by a discussion. The keynote lecture will be held at 5 PM on 16th May. The conference will include a film presentation and discussion session on 17th May.

 

Submissions:

Please send the following to Brenda McCollum at events@africa.ox.ac.uk by April 2nd 2024:

· Title.

· Abstract of max. 300 words.

· Biography of max. 100 words.

· Specify whether you would prefer to present online or in Oxford.

· Panel proposals are also welcome. For more details please see: https://www.africanstudies.ox.ac.uk/

Press Statement: Incidence of Assault on the University Campus

Starting January 16, 2024 - Ending January 16, 2025

January 16, 2024

PRESS STATEMENT: INCIDENCE OF ASSAULT ON THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS

 

The Management of the University of Ghana has learned with concern that a young man was assaulted around the southern part of the University’s Legon campus. The attack was videoed and widely shared on social media.

Preliminary information from the University’s Security Services Unit uncovers the following:

  • A young man dressed like a female was seen in the Okponglo area, seeking accommodation and was accommodated by some women in the area.
  • During the night, his true identity was revealed, leading to physical assault by the women who accommodated him.
  • A refuse collector, assuming the young man to be a woman, intervened and took him to a refuse collection site behind Dr. Hilla Limann Hall.
  • Realising the true gender the following morning, the refuse collector also assaulted the young man, instructing him to leave the area.
  • The Security Personnel were alerted by University of Ghana students to intervene.
  • Some of the students who watched the scene took videos.
  • The University Security Services Unit handed both the young man and the refuse collector (both of whom are not students of the University) over to the Legon Police for investigation.

The University of Ghana strongly denounces the assault and denigration perpetrated by the persons seen in the videos posted on social media on the victim, and strongly condemns such acts of lawlessness.  The University of Ghana would like to affirm its commitment  to the safety, dignity and inclusivity of all persons, as stated in its Statutes as follows:

 

42.(1) Without prejudice to the application of the national laws by the University, no member of the University shall:

(e) engage in a course of vexatious conduct that is directed at one or more specific individuals, and

  1. that is based on the race, ancestry, place of birth, origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, creed, age, marital status, family status, disability, receipt of public assistance or record of offences of that individual or those individuals.

Management takes its commitment to the enforcement of the rules and regulations governing the University seriously, and any member of the University community identified to be involved in this cruel incident will be appropriately sanctioned.

Management assures the public that the University will continue to work with the Ghana Police Service for a thorough investigation into the matter and to ensure the safety of all members of the University community as well as visitors to our campuses.

Important Notice - Alert on Admission Confirmation Deadline

Starting January 15, 2024 - Ending January 15, 2025

IMPORTANT NOTICE

ALERT ON ADMISSION CONFIRMATION DEADLINE

 

Newly admitted students at the University of Ghana are reminded that they are required to pay a non-refundable 30% commitment fee, which is an integral step in confirming acceptance of offer of admission to the University.

Students are to adhere to the payment deadline specified in their admission letters.

The payment deadline is determined by the issuance date specified in each student's admission letter. As a result, the deadline will vary for each student, depending on the date on their letter.

Failure to pay the commitment fee as stipulated will result in the withdrawal of the admission offer, immediately after the deadline. Additionally, students are strongly advised to refrain from initiating any payment of the commitment fee beyond the deadline.

Prompt attention to this matter is crucial.

This deadline differs from the academic registration deadline which is also stated on the admission letter. For assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out on WhatsApp to the Admission Help Desk on 0200480344.

Beware of Accommodation Scam

Starting January 14, 2024 - Ending January 14, 2025

BEWARE OF ACCOMMODATION SCAM

The University has received information that some unscrupulous persons are asking non-resident students to apply for accommodation in traditional halls of residence through a particular e-mail address and to make payment through a mobile money number (0533353233).

Please note that this is a scam. Allocation of rooms was done through the Random Bed Allocation and that process has ended.

Students who were not able to secure accommodation through the allocation system may contact the private hostels on and around the UG campus for information on available accommodation.

The public and members of the University community are, therefore, cautioned to be wary of such scams and verify any information received from appropriate UG official channels.

For any assistance or enquiries, do not hesitate to reach out on WhatsApp to the Admission Help Desk on 0200480344 or email admissions@ug.edu.gh.

Research Funding Secured To Explore Strategic Alliances As A Performance Enhancement Tool For Ghana’s Agri-Food Sector

Starting November 15, 2023 - Ending November 15, 2024

 

PROJECT LAUNCH

RESEARCH FUNDING SECURED TO EXPLORE STRATEGIC ALLIANCES AS A PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT TOOL FOR GHANA’S AGRI-FOOD SECTOR

Researchers at the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness, University of Ghana and the Department of Agricultural Economics, Kansas State University have secured funding to explore the effect of strategic alliances in the agri-food sector and its competitiveness.

The project is funded by USDA, Foreign Agricultural Service under the Scientific Cooperation Research Program.

The principal investigators of the research are Dr. Abigail Ampomah Adaku, University of Ghana and Prof. Vincent Amanor-Boadu, Kansas State University. The project will contribute to knowledge about the gaps and challenges facing the agri-food supply chain in Ghana in its attempts to improve inter-organizational relationships with the view to enhancing overall competitiveness.  The project will explore the business and institutional factors that constrain agri-food sector firms from leveraging their collective strengths to enhance their operations, profitability, and overall effectiveness. It will also include training and capacity enhancement for industry stakeholders in building and managing strategic relationships.

“This project is a continuation of work I started with Prof. Amanor-Boadu when I was studying for my PhD at Kansas State University. Its potential benefits for Ghana and the University of Ghana are immense,” Dr. Adaku said. “I’m grateful for the continuous collaboration between Dr. Adaku and me. The support we get from the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness at the University of Ghana and the Department of Agricultural Economics at Kansas State University enables us to work towards improving performance in Ghana’s agri-food sector,” Prof. Amanor-Boadu added. .  The investigators expressed their gratitude for the financial support from the United States Department of Agriculture and operational support from the Ghana Ministry of Food and Agriculture and several Ghanaian companies.

Distribution of Laptops - One Student One Laptop (1S1L) initiative

Starting November 6, 2023 - Ending November 6, 2024

The Vice Chancellor’s office at the University of Ghana is thrilled to bring to your attention the "One Student One Laptop" (1S1L) initiative which commenced in 2021. This visionary program aims to provide each student with a laptop, a crucial tool for both academic and personal growth.

In today's digital age, technology access is not a luxury but a necessity. The Vice-Chancellor believes that every student should have the opportunity to excel academically, enhance their skills, and prepare for the challenges of the modern world.

Therefore, the 1S1L initiative seeks to address the lack of technology skills caused by the inaccessibility of learning systems and tools that a functional laptop can offer.

To ensure equal access to technology, a select number of laptops will be provided entirely free of charge based on academic performance, financial need, and potential contributions to our academic community. This free laptop assistance is facilitated through the Students Financial Aid Office, eliminating financial barriers to students’ success.

Our inaugural 1S1L distribution took place in August 2022, and we've successfully conducted two more since then.

We're excited to announce the next distribution on November 8, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., which will be held at the Cedi Conference Center. We warmly extend an invitation to everyone to join us for this event.

We also wish to extend our heartfelt appreciation to our dedicated individual and corporate sponsors whose generous support in donating laptops to students has been invaluable, and upon whom we will continue to rely for our 1S1L initiative.’

For those who may not qualify for a free laptop but still need affordable access, we are offering hire purchase options. These laptops will be available to you at a significantly reduced cost, payable in convenient instalments throughout your school year.

In addition to providing laptops, we are establishing an assembling plant on our campus. This facility will not only contribute to student job creation, economic development, and project sustainability, but it will also provide students with a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in technology assembly, contributing to skills development and future employability.

This initiative is a testament to the Vice Chancellor’s commitment to student growth and success. The VC believes that access to technology is a fundamental right, and this program is a significant step toward creating a level playing field for all our students.

Additional information on the application and selection process is available on the University’s website.

 

 

YOUSUSTAIN Conference 2023: Sustaining Sub-Saharan African Cities Through Youth Ecopreneurship.

Starting November 1, 2023 - Ending November 1, 2024

YOUSUSTAIN CONFERENCE 2023: SUSTAINING SUB-SAHARAN AFRICAN CITIES THROUGH YOUTH ECOPRENEURSHIP.

Context

Achieving sustainability in urban cities is a struggle for most countries on the African continent. Although the struggles in some of these cities are unique, shared challenges are ubiquitous across the continent. Poverty, population increase, unemployment, and environmental degradation are the factors that exacerbate this urban sustainability challenge. Young people are the ones affected the most by these negative stressors as they represent the majority of the region’s population and are mostly at the forefront of these stressors.

The rising population of the African continent and the quest for decent living through sustainable livelihood options forces many to migrate to urban areas in the continent. The implications of such growth patterns in fast-urbanizing communities have been grim, especially in land management and its consequential impacts on housing, human settlements, food security, waste and sanitation management, public health, water resources, mobility, disaster risk, and livelihoods. Thus, the problem of sustainability in African cities is underscored and the need for urgent action is highlighted.

Globally, governments are partnering with international development agencies and other stakeholders to create avenues for young people to establish business enterprises. These programmes empower young people with soft and hard skills to increase their employability and improve their capacity for entrepreneurship. These are manifested in job creation hubs to help young people with nano and micro businesses and enhance productivity while promoting urban sustainability. Some of the beneficiaries have established businesses that draw on the nexus between entrepreneurship and sustainability known as ecopreneurship.

For example, young people have established green business models that reintroduce carbon into the soil and prevent nutrient leaching. Others have also set up green businesses that upcycle plastic materials into sellable products like bags, raincoats and curtains sold for income.

Ecopreneurship, as the name suggests, is a business model that operates on environmental sustainability and circular economy principles. Such business principles do not only generate income but also sit at the heart of sustainability through efficient resource use, and a significant cut back on environment degradation.

Sociocultural practices and the lack of financial and technical support for young people in business are The YouSustain Conference seeks to create a platform for young people, developmental agencies, and researchers to have an intellectual discourse on how best young people can be supported to contribute to urban sustainability in sub-Saharan Africa through ecopreneurship the major challenges faced by young Africans as they venture into ecopreneurship. Thus, this has made it difficult to reach out to the broader population of young people on the continent to educate and equip them with the knowledge and wherewithal to contribute their part to the effort to promote sustainability in sub-Saharan African cities.

 

Conference Objective

. Specifically, the conference seeks to:

-        Provide a networking and resource opportunity for young people involved in ecopreneural businesses to share knowledge and potentially collaborate for green business development.

-        Select viable ecopreneural ideas from the conference and provide them with incubation support and potential grants for their project implementation.

-        Create a platform for young people to showcase their green businesses, products, and services, and gain exposure and visibility for their work to explore avenues for upscaling.

-        Explore how successful practices and solutions for sustainability in sub-Saharan African cities can be transformed into viable youth-led ecopreneurship ventures, and identify the key enabling factors and potential barriers to their establishment and growth.

 

Thematic areas

The thematic areas to be covered include, but are not limited to the following:

-        Waste management and circular economy

-        Agriculture in urban and peri-urban areas, climate-smart agriculture, and sustainable food systems

-        Climate adaptation and climate policy

-        Urban planning and governance

-        Urban transportation and innovation

-        Sustainable energy transitions

-        Education for sustainable development and environmental stewardship

-        Conservation and regeneration of urban areas and the implementation of green infrastructure

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
 

Building Capacity for

Early Career Humanities Scholars in Africa

 

Building Capacity for Early Career Humanities Scholars in Africa (BECHS-Africa) is a partnership involving four universities: University of Ghana, American University in Cairo, Stellenbosch University and Washington University in St. Louis, with University of Ghana as the lead Institution. Funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, it is a three-year transnational programme, which seeks to enhance research capacity for early career scholars in the humanities. The programme will fund the travel, housing, and other related costs of selected early career humanities scholars from the four institutions to spend four to six months at one of the other partner institutions. 

The aim of the project is to create a space for scholars in the humanities to enhance their research agenda in their early career years. The period of stay (four to six months) in the collaborating institution will allow for targeted mentorship and guidance for the selected scholars by identified senior scholars who share their research interests, while also providing an avenue for interaction and the sharing of research ideas and methodologies with peers. The project is unique in many respects as, unlike some existing initiatives, it seeks to create avenues for early career scholars to have the opportunity of residency across the three regions of Africa as well as at a northern institution.

The Fellowship. The Project provides a four to six-month residency at any of the four collaborating institutions. Support comprises the following:

  1. An economy return flight
  2. Travel Insurance
  3. Accommodation
  4. Office space
  5. A monthly stipend to cover transport, meals, entertainment and other incidentals
  6. Access to library facilities at the host university
  7. Funds to organize a research-focused workshop at the host University
  8. Mentoring from senior faculty at the host institution

Expectations.  Successful applicants are expected to:

  1. Be in residence at the host institution for four to six months
  2. Attend local presentations, conferences and workshops organized by the host institution that are of relevance to the scholar’s research
  3. Attend grant writing and publication workshops offered by the host university
  4. Organize a workshop based on her/his research topic, through which the scholar will receive detailed feedback from leading academics in the field
  5. Fulfill the research and publication goals set out in the original application
  6. Provide a final report
  7. Acknowledge support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in any subsequent publications and provide BECHS-Africa with all citations to publications resulting from the residency.

 Eligibility. To be eligible an applicant must:

  1. Be in a full-time permanent post in the humanities in any of the four collaborating institutions
  2. Be an early career scholar with a record of research and academic publishing
  3. Have a PhD that was obtained within the last ten years (2013 or later)
  4. Have a scholarly record of publications commensurate with career stage or years from degree

Collaborating Institutions

The institutions involved in BECHS-Africa have been selected to provide opportunities for fellows to carry out their residency across three regions of Africa: western, southern and northern Africa, as well as at one institution in the United States. The institutions are all highly ranked in the Times Higher Educational Rankings of Universities, are active in research in the humanities and social sciences and have demonstrated high research output. The selection has also been informed by the availability of mentors and adequate library facilities to support a robust and dynamic academic environment. They are:  The University of Ghana (lead institution), American University in Cairo, Stellenbosch University and Washington University in Saint Louis.

Submission of Applications

Eligible candidates should complete the project application coversheet, which can be downloaded here. The completed form must be signed, dated, endorsed and submitted together with the following documents, combined into a single PDF.  Full applications should be submitted electronically via email to bechs-africa@ug.edu.gh.

Arrangements for Students’ Accommodation for 2023/2024 Academic Year

Starting September 27, 2023 - Ending September 27, 2024

 

Arrangements for Students’ Accommodation

for 2023/2024 Academic Year

 

The Residence Board has deliberated on accommodation arrangements for the 2023/2024 academic year and made the following decisions:

 

  • As was indicated at the beginning of the 2022/2023 academic year, and in consonance with the In-Out-Out-Out policy which came into effect in the 2022/2023 academic year, the traditional halls will be progressively reserved for fresh students only. All first-year undergraduate students who were given accommodation in traditional halls for the 2022/2023 academic year would have to apply for accommodation in the UGEL Halls, private hostels or any of the off-campus accommodation facilities from the 2023/2024 academic year.

 

  • Students with Special Needs and Levels 300 and 400 students who resided in traditional halls for the 2022/2023 academic year, will continue to retain their residence until completion.

 

  • A new random bed assignment system designed by UGCS will be implemented for the 2023/2024 academic year, beginning with the allocation of beds to continuing students in the UGEL halls. This forms part of recommendations by a committee set up by the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic and Student Affairs) to develop a new, transparent and equitable room allocation/balloting system for students.

 

  • Random assignment of beds to students will be conducted openly to allow all stakeholders to observe the transparency in the process.

 

  • The new bed allocation system will provide 60% of available spaces in the UGEL Halls for Level 200/second year undergraduate students, and 20% each for undergraduate students in Level 300 and Level 400.

 

  • The new system will also be used to assign all beds in the traditional halls to first year/Level 100 students beginning their programmes in the 2023/2024 academic year.

 

  • Students interested in being considered in the random assignment of beds would have to opt-in after completing their academic registration. A web link (https://sts.ug.edu.gh/) will be embedded in their online registration processes for the purpose. Those who have already completed their academic registration can use this link https://sts.ug.edu.gh/ to get into the portal.

 

  • As part of the new system, nearly all beds will be assigned randomly through the new system developed by the UGCS; only a limited number of beds will be reserved at the hall level for critical needs (e.g. students with special needs). Therefore, all students seeking University accommodation are highly encouraged to ensure their early registration, and completion of the form by which to indicate interest in being included in the random assignment exercise.

 

  • Random bed allocation for UGEL halls will take place on Friday October 6, 2023 at 10am.  Therefore, students who wish to be included must sign-up by Thursday October 5,2023.   

 

While the University makes efforts to increase its residential facilities, Management would like to reiterate that accommodation is not tied to admission into the University. Students who are, unfortunately, not successful in securing any of the available spaces on campus would have to make alternative accommodation arrangements.

 

The University wishes to reiterate that under no circumstance should any student or parent/guardian pay money to anyone for a bed.  This is illegal and both the seller and buyer will be violating the regulations of the University and will be sanctioned accordingly.

 

Students must also take note that “perching” is illegal and that defaulting students will face the necessary disciplinary procedures and sanctions if found guilty.
