About PUCG HISTORICAL BACKGROUND According to the church history, in 1843, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana established the first primary school in the country. This sparked off a series of bold, visionary and pioneering initiatives in the development of education in the country. Five years later, it established the Presbyterian Training College (PTC) at Akropong, the second higher educational institution in West Africa after Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone. Since… [+] those early beginnings, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has established and managed, in partnership with the Government of Ghana, hundreds of primary schools, many high schools and colleges of education. These schools and colleges, guided by the proverbial Presbyterian discipline, set very high moral as well as educational standards, which have characterized the Presbyterian Education tradition. Also in partnership with government, the church has provided and managed Professional, Technical and Vocational Institutions in a wide range of fields including Agriculture and Health. Specifically, the church has established 1,886 schools comprising 490 Nurseries, 973 Primary Schools, 388 Junior High Schools, five (5) Vocational Institutes, five (5) Colleges of Education and 25 Senior High Schools. With the establishment of the Presbyterian Training College (PTC), it was hoped that, like the Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone, it might one day be upgraded to a university. However, after several years, it was not until 1996 that the Synod of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at that time took the bold decision to initiate steps into establishing a university. The body charged with pushing forward this initiative, the Presbyterian University Implementation Committee, was formally established in 1998. It is through these efforts and the determination of the Church that the Presbyterian University College, Ghana has come into being. THE VISION This Presbyterian University College, Ghana, is envisaged as “A University of excellence which blends modern trends that reflect Christian principles”. THE MISSION The mission of the University is ‘‘To design and implement relevant academic and Professional programmes of teaching, research and outreach for a global population within the context of Christian ethics that produce holistic human development.’’ OBJECTIVES The objectives for which the University is founded are: To provide for and promote University education, learning and research, To acquire and disseminate knowledge and information, To foster relationships with other institutions of higher learning, per sons and bodies. To produce disciplined, self-motivated individuals and leaders with moral and intellectual values in the realization of their responsibilities to God, fellow citizens and the state. Without prejudice to the generality of its powers, the University shall be guided by the following principles in the realization of its objectives: that in determining the courses and programmes to be taught emphasis shall be placed on a balanced pursuit of the humanities, the basic sciences, the development, application and management of technology, which are of special relevance to the needs and aspirations of Ghanaians in particular, and others in general; that higher education in this University shall be available to all Ghanaians and others who are capable of benefiting from it; that research shall be undertaken in all courses which are taught in the University but with attention to courses which relate to the social, cultural, economic, scientific, technical and other problems which exists in Ghana or elsewhere in Africa; that the fruits of research and knowledge generally shall be spread abroad by the publication of books and papers and by any other suitable means; that students shall be taught methods of critical and independent thought, while being made aware that they have a responsibility to use their education for the service of the Church, country and humanity; that as far as practicable the students shall be trained to be innovative and entrepreneurial to enhance socio- economic development; that the University shall operationalize local, regional and global needs assessment as the basis for practical and multi-disciplinary outreach programmes in the local and regional communities; that the University shall inculcate in the student ethical, moral and intellectual values that manifest in courage, discipline, fair play, self motivation and respect for the dignity of an honest life. THE CONCEPT The Presbyterian University College is conceived as a response to the challenge presented by the high demand for student admission in Ghanaian Universities (low access), the perceived lowering of academic standards and the erosion of moral and ethical values in the Ghanaian Society. It will relate its programmes to the developmental needs of Ghana in the 21st Century and beyond, in terms of training, research, extension and service. It will identify and fill important niches in the development of higher education in the country. The main concepts are as follows: The College is open to all students and staff without discrimination on the basis of religion, race, ethnic origin or gender. It is a fee-paying institution, with a mechanism to promote sponsorship for needy students. It is a multi-campus university. The College will take advantage of the cool, semi-temperate weather in some of its locations to attract external students and to promote a broad agricultural programme. Owing to the location of some of the Campuses, the College will be residential for both staff and students; the university will however promote the development of hostels for students and staff housing through private enterprise. The College will gradually introduce programmes in the social sciences, the humanities, science and technology, languages, theology and mission studies, health and medical studies such as nursing, medicine and dentistry (as indicated elsewhere in this handbook) in accordance with the University’s Strategic Plan.

Passion to Serve: Serving with great zeal and enthusiasm. OUR MISSION STATEMENT The Christian Service University College is an Academic Centre of Excellence for teaching, research and service in Theology, Applied Science and Humanities in an Evangelical and sound ethical environment. A Brief History The College began as a merger of two visions in January 1974. A group of Ghanaian Christians had a vision of an interdenominational, evangelical institution of a high academic standard, which would train men and women for all types of Christian Ministry. The second group comprised expatriate missionaries who had a vision of an institution to train workers from the well-established church in southern Ghana for a thrust into northern Ghana and neighboring countries where the church was relatively very small. Evangelical Christianity in Ghana in the late 1960's and 1970's was characterized, among other things, by intimate interaction and collaboration and blurring of denominational, mission and group distinctions. The Worldwide Evangelization for Christ (WEC), which was one of the missionary groups in the second group of missionaries, had acquired property in Kumasi on which they had built four dwelling houses and a radio studio with plans to construct a large building to serve as the beginning of a training college. Soon the two visions merged. In October 1974, the first residential classes started with four students and the College grew from strength to strength and has now become an Evangelical Christian University College. Our Core Values The Christian Service University College cherishes and upholds the following core values which it deems as central and basic to the institution. They are: The Lordship of Jesus Christ.

About UG The vision of the University of Ghana is to develop world-class human resources and capabilities to meet national development needs and global challenges through quality teaching, learning, research and knowledge dissemination. Founded in 1948 as the University College of the Gold Coast, the institution was mandated to provide and promote University learning, education and research. It became the University College of Ghana on the attainment of Ghana’s independence i… [+] n March 1957. However, by an Act of Parliament on 1st October 1961, the University College of Ghana attained sovereign university status with authority to award its own degrees. It is the oldest and largest of the six public universities in Ghana. With a current student population of over 36,000 of which about 1,100 are international students, the University of Ghana’s operations are governed by the highest level of integrity, ethical standards, openness and fairness, and are underpinned by a performance-driven reward recognition system. It is a centre of academic excellence recognized worldwide for the excellence of its faculty and student body and for the professional success of its alumni. It has trained more than 50,000 graduates who are making contributions towards the development of Ghana as well as at the international level. Campuses The University’s distinctive specialized teaching and impactful research is carried across three campus communities – Legon Campus, Korle Bu Campus and Accra City Campus. Legon Campus: The Legon Campus lies about 13 kilometers north-east of Accra, the capital of Ghana. This is where most of the University’s teaching and research are carried out. The Legon Campus also houses the central administration of the University. There are 16 on-campus residential facilities for students. Admitted postgraduate students are traditionally offered accommodation at the co-ed VALCO Trust Fund Hostel. However, students have the option to reside in any other hostel on campus, or off-campus if they so desire. From the 2014/2015 academic year the University will be implementing a collegiate system, which among other things, will improve the efficiency in administration and running of the University. Four colleges will be established; College of Health Sciences, College of Humanities, College of Basic and Applied Sciences and the College of Education. Three out of these four colleges will be situated on the Legon Campus. The University of Ghana offers as many as 90 undergraduate and 150 graduate programmes in various fields in the arts, social science, business, physical and biological sciences, medicine, dentistry, allied health sciences, agriculture, engineering sciences and law. Special programmes are offered in Performing Arts, African Studies and International Affairs. Korle-Bu Campus: The Korle-Bu Campus, headed by a Provost, houses the College of Health Sciences which is made up of the Medical School, Dental School, the School of Public Health, and Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research, the School of Allied Health Sciences and the School of Nursing. Accra City Campus: The Accra City Campus is the new name for the restructured External Degree Center of the University of Ghana which operated at the Accra Workers College.
