Prof. Amfo expressed her excitement about the potential of the Centre, which she believes, will ease the process of getting GTEC to accredit the Centre as a City Campus of the University of Ghana. She added that as the University seeks to project its graduate programmes, Management had tasked some officials, led by the Dean of the University of Ghana Business School, Prof. Justice N. Bawole, to see how best UG can roll out its graduate courses on the Distance Education (DE) programme.

“Once the Centre is upgraded to a City Campus, it will allow for more than just running the undergraduate and diploma programmes”, she said.

“Management would re-engage the Deans of the School of Nursing and Midwifery and the School of Continuing and Distance Education, as well as the Provost of the College of Education to bring the Nursing programme back on board in a way that is equitable and jointly owned.”

In line with the strategy to digitalise communication, the Vice-Chancellor, encouraged the Centre to employ emails in its communication. She tasked the College Secretary of the College of Education to develop Standard Operating Procedures on communication for the Learning Centres, to guide them on communicating effectively with the College and receiving feedback on requests made.
