The 19th Congregation of the University which took place on the 10th of November 2018, featured prominently in the VC’s report to Convocation and Staff Durbar for Senior and Junior Staff. The Ceremony which was graced by the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffu Addo, marked the climax of the University’s Silver Jubilee. The President announced the conversion of the Navrongo and Wa campuses into autonomous Universities.

With respect to admission of students into the University, Prof. Teye indicated that 5,836 representing 5,445 undergraduate fresh men and women and 391 graduate fresh men and women have been enrolled for the 2018/2019 academic year.

In terms of staff development, deserving staff were promoted to more challenging roles and various training workshops and sessions were held for teaching staff, both old and newly appointed, and also for security personnel. The University also held four Professorial Inaugural Lectures during the period under review.

On the international front, more work was done to strengthen ties between the University and other institutions across the globe. The body in charge of this, the Directorate of International Relations and Advancement (DIRA), met various delegations from international institutions, where they discussed possible ways to collaborate with the view of enhancing teaching, learning and research.
