A Memorandum of Understanding [MOU] has been signed between three [3] universities to help collaborate peacefully to partly exchange students from these institutions to enable them invite academic staffs for a certain period of time.

The institutions namely the University of Hildesheim, Germany, University of Maiduguri, Nigeria and the University of Cape Coast, Ghana have initiated a research training group to help train graduate students particularly PHD and Masters students on centers around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The School of Educational Development & Outreach, Center for Teaching Support of the University of Cape Coast [UCC] is set to hold a seminar on Thursday April 27, 2017.

The seminar themed "Decolonizing mind and action, improving teaching and impact in higher education: reflections in Ghana", is expected to draw a large number of people from the academia to the School of Medical Sciences Auditorium where the event is scheduled to take place.

The Vice Dean of the Faculty of Arts, University of Cape Coast Professor Peter Kojo Grant, has indicated that the President’s promise to make Accra the neatest city in Africa cannot be possible in the first term of his administration.

He is of the view that the current state and peculiar problems of Accra would make it very difficult for the president to fulfill his promise in his first term of office.

The head of Department of Arts, Social Sciences Education [DASSE] of University of Cape Coast [UCC], Reverend Professor Seth Asare Danso has proposed that the number of subjects that students are examined on at the Junior High School level should be reduced to five [5].

In an interaction on the Atlantic Wave of ATLFM on Friday, he noted that the reduction of the number of subjects to three as proposed by Dr. Patrick Awuah, President of Ashesi University will make students treat some subjects as not important; hence calling for an increase.
