In a letter signed by the Minister of State for Tertiary Education, the Ministry of Education has announced that the President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo, has granted a Presidential Charter to Ashesi University College. With this award, the University now becomes an independent degree-granting institution. The Charter will be formally presented at Ashesi’s 2018 Graduation Ceremony.

“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,” the letter read.

Ashesi submitted its application for Presidential Charter in January 2016, following the establishment of its engineering programme. The Presidential Charter is recognition of the University’s quality, strength, and impact on higher education in Ghana and beyond. Ashesi is the youngest private university in Ghana’s history to receive the Charter.
