Vice President Amissah-Arthur Challenges African Universities To Tailor Courses To Meet Industry Demands

Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has charged African Universities to accelerate the pace in charting their own identity, be innovative and re-orient themselves to meet the socio-economic, political and developmental needs of the times.

African governments must therefore, continue to prompt the universities and other Stakeholders to chart the appropriate policy direction.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur said this when he launched the second Times Higher Education (THE) Africa Universities Summit on the theme: "Globalisation And Policy Directions For African Higher Education" at the University of Ghana, Legon.

He said African Universities must continue to be relevant by constantly re-inventing and maintaining their relevance to the aspirations of the people who finance their activities.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur said to whom much is given, a lot is expected.

They therefore require social orientation using the best means to achieve their goals.

He said in the face of the raging impact of globalization, Africa universities cannot afford to stand still.

They therefore need to avert the danger of being overtaken and consequently losing their relevance.

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof Ernest Aryeetey appealed to African governments not to pursue policies that are inimical to revenue generation of the universities.

This he said stifles efforts by the Universities to be financially sound in confronting the challenges and impact of globalization on Africa Universities.
