A 3-member delegation from Wheaton College (WC), Chicago-USA has met with management board of the Christian Service University College, CSUC, Kumasi to promote Christian Higher Education in Ghana.
The two Christian Higher institutions sought to discuss collaboration issues that seek to enhance academic growth of their staff and students.
According to Prof. Afrane, President of CSUC, the collaboration between the two institutions was in the right direction following their common Christian focus.
He noted that the major collaboration was geared towards yearly-based students and staff exchange programmes in both Institutions.
He added that the integration would foster expansion in quality higher education through the exhibition of varied structural and cultural orientations from both Colleges.
The week-long meeting also touched on integration of faith and learning, academic research issues and inter-departmental activities for faculty development.
Side attraction included a tour of CSUC campus, church visit, site-seeing to Lake Bosomtwe and other cultural centres in the Kumasi Municipality.
CSUC-Wheaton College relation dates back 2007 under the leadership of the Late President, Prof. Emmanuel Frimpong. Upon CSUC’s visit to Wheaton College in 2007, a delegate, in the person of Prof. Laura M. Montgomery, Dean, Global Programs and studies paid a week courtesy visit to CSUC and has since nurtured the relationship to this level. The two Institutions are now hopeful to formally exchange bilateral partnership to advance Christian Higher Education in Ghana and beyond.
