The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, together with other members of Senior Management, has participated in a High-Level Consultative Meeting to discuss a draft of the UG Strategy for Internationalisation following the inauguration of the Internationalisation Strategy Development Committee (ISDC) in October 2021. The Committee, chaired by Prof. Eric Y. Danquah, had drafted the strategy, and invited the Vice-Chancellor, Pro Vice-Chancellors, Provosts, and other stakeholders to the high-level consultative meeting to review/discuss the draft document.

The Committee has the mandate to explore the academic mobility, visibility, University collaboration, regionalisation and recruitment of international students, and to develop a strategy to drive the work and life of faculty, staff and students at the University.

In her introductory address, the Vice-Chancellor indicated that it was important for the University to be more deliberate, consistent and process- oriented when it comes to internationalisation. Therefore, having an internationalisation strategy document would promote the University’s internationalisation efforts. She added that the University’s vision to become a world-class research-intensive university requires a University community that has a global outlook. She acknowledged the presence of the Provosts and Deans at the meeting as they would be leading the implementation process of the UG Internationalisation strategy.

In brief remarks, Prof. Eric Y. Danquah expressed appreciation for the opportunity to serve the University. He assured the Vice-Chancellor of the readiness of the Committee to deliver exceptional results.
