Tertiary Education Ashesi receives Presidential Charter

Ashesi is the youngest private university in Ghana’s history to receive the Charter.

  • Published:

President Akufo-Addo has granted a Presidential Charter to Ashesi University College.

In a letter signed by the Minister of State for Tertiary Education, it stated that the Presidential Charter was granted “after a rigorous review of the university’s teaching and learning infrastructure, curriculum, finances, staff qualifications and governance, the National Accreditation Board presented a report to the Ministry of Education endorsing Ashesi’s readiness for independence from the University of Cape Coast, with which it has been affiliated.”

“With this award, the University now becomes an independent degree-granting institution. The Charter will be formally presented at Ashesi’s 2018 Graduation ceremony in June,” the letter added.
