New Leaders for University of Cape Coast 05 October 2012

Prof. Domwini Dabire Kuupole, until October 1, 2012 the Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, has been inducted into office as the Ninth Vice Chancellor of the University. He succeeded Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang at a colourful ceremony performed by the Chancellor of the University, Sir Dr. Sam Jonah and witnessed by the Chairman of the Governing Council, His Lordship, Justice A.K.B Ampiah (Rtd).

The venue for the induction ceremony, the Examinations Centre adjacent to the School of Medical Sciences, was packed to capacity with members of the University Community, friends and relations from across the country especially Nandom. His mother managed to be there leading the cultural troupe to exhibit the traditional dances of the people of Nandom.

An interesting revelation about the new Vice-Chancellor was that he was Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Arts where Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang was the Dean. Then again Prof. Kuupole was the Pro-Vice-Chancellor to Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang who was the substantive Vice-Chancellor. Was that divinely ordained? The answers are to be provided by the heavenly realm.

Prof. Kuupole comes to the scene with immense capital. He has been the Hall Master of the Casely-Hayford Hall, the Head of the department of French, the Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Arts, the National Secretary of the UCC Alumni Association and the National President of the Alumni Association, a position he held even to the date of his induction.

He has been on several committees of the University including the Finance Committee, the Executive Committee and the Development Committee among others.

He is not a novice to the international scene having travelled to countries such as Spain, the USA, France, India, Liberia, South Africa, Kenya, and Nigeria among others.

With these achievements, the Chancellor in his induction speech asked the new Vice Chancellor to move the University forward. The Chancellor said the choice of Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as Vice Chancellor to succeed Prof. Emmanuel Adow-Obeng was not a mistake. The University has seen tremendous growth.

That is why Prof. Opoku-Agyemang in her “thank You” speech said the University was already in flight and should be cruising like the eagle.

Prof Kuupole said he was thankful to all previous executive heads of the University whose efforts had laid a solid foundation on which he was going to build on. He was more pleased that he had a cooperative university community to tap their support and commitment.

Also inducted into office was a new Registrar, Mr. John Kofi Nyan, a man who joined the University as a Clerk Grade I in 1983. He developed himself and rose through the ranks to become a Senior Administrative Assistant, Junior Assistant Registrar, Assistant Registrar (Faculty officer, Senior Assistant Registrar, Deputy Registrar (2008) and now Registrar. This means every ladder of the administrative grades saw Mr. Nyan performing his role. This makes him rich in experience for the job.

Mr Nyan replaces Dr. Isaac Ohene as head of the Registry. Interestingly enough, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang came in with Dr. Ohene the same day four years ago when Prof Adow-Obeng and the then Registrar, Mr. Kofi Ohene were leaving together.

GHANA DIASPORA LINKAGE PROGRAMME(UG-DLP) Click Here...

GHANA DIASPORA LINKAGE PROGRAMME(UG-DLP) 08 July 2011

UNIVERSITY OF GHANA DIASPORA LINKAGE PROGRAMME (UG-DLP)

 

The University of Ghana is establishing a pilot DiasporaLinkage Programme (UG-DLP) under its Next Generation of African Academicsproject funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

 

UG has embarkedon an intensive development of its younger faculty who do not hold PhD or otherterminal degree; and expansion of its post-graduate programme from the current6% of total student population to 20% in the next five years.  The drive to increase post-graduate studentrecruitment, however, is constrained by the limited number of senior faculty toteach graduate programmes and supervise thesis research.  The UG-DLP, therefore, seeks to promotepartnerships with Ghanaian professors in the Diaspora that will enable UG todraw on the expertise of academics in partner universities abroad to enhanceits faculty strength for post-graduate teaching, supervision and thesisexamination.  It is expected that suchpartnerships will lead also to collaborative research that will enhanceresearch productivity.

 

The pilotUniversity of Ghana-Diaspora Linkages Programme will establish links withexisting Ghana Diaspora Networks and individual Ghanaian professors working inuniversities abroad.  Our expectation isthat the Ghanaian professors in the Diaspora will obtain the endorsement fromtheir universities to use their leave/sabbatical periods to support UG.  Selected professors must be available tospend a minimum of one month, but ideally one to two semesters at UG, and mustbe willing to teach graduate courses, supervise MPhil/PhD students, examinestudent theses and engage in research, ideally in collaboration with  UG faculty. Our expectation is that this arrangement will provide additional facultytime input to enhance teaching and research at UG and support the developmentof new post-graduate programmes.

 

With thefunds provided by Carnegie, UG will cover air ticket of selected professors andprovide a small daily allowance of cover costs in Ghana. UG will also endeavour to provideaccommodation on campus where necessary.
