A delegation from the Central University College (CUC) led by the President, Prof. Kojo Yankah, has paid a courtesy call on the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. D. D. Kuupole to discuss ways of strengthening the already existing cordial relationship between the two institutions at the Council Chamber, South Campus.
Welcoming the delegation, Prof. Kuupole noted that UCC and CUC’s mutually and beneficial relationship spanned over a decade with both institutions contributing to the sustainability of the partnership. He assured the delegation that UCC would assist CUC to attain the status of a fully-fledged University with the mandate to award its own degrees when the National Accreditation Board finally approves of their request for a charter.
In his response, the President of CUC, Prof. Yankah indicated that as a mentor institution, “it is a step in the right direction for me to introduce myself, the new Vice-President, Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Addow-Obeng who is also a former Vice-Chancellor of UCC and other members of management to the Vice-Chancellor of UCC. He also explained that the visit was to congratulate Prof. D. D. Kuupole on his appointment as the new Vice-Chancellor of UCC.
Prof. Yankah also used the opportunity to disclose some of the challenges the college was encountering such as supervision of teaching and the conduct of examinations. He therefore called for assistance in the area of curriculum development, capacity building and acquisition of a charter.
The meeting was also attended by a section of Deans and senior administrators from both institutions.
