The University of Ghana, the premier university, the oldest and the largest university in Ghana was founded as the University College of the Gold Coast(present Ghana) by Ordinance on August 11, 1948 for the purpose of providing and promoting university education, learning and research.

As a University poised to distinguish itself in the area of research to make an impact at the national and international level, the University has launched a new Strategic Plan.

This new strategic plan (2014-2024) is intended to consolidate the gains made from the review of the University’s mission and practices and situate these within the context of a very dynamic environment of higher education in Ghana and beyond.


To become a world class research-intensive University over the next decade.
