The Vice Chancellor of University of Cape Coast, Professor D.D Kuupole, has urged the Catholic church to consider partnering the government and other organisations to expand its tertiary education in the country.
He said the church should take advantage of the government’s quest to establish more universities and other tertiary institutions, to strike a partnership deal with the government on how to establish and manage such institutions.
According to him, the Catholic model of education continue to enjoy high public confidence, adding that that should be an ample opportunity for the Church to establish more tertiary institutions to serve more Ghanaians.
Prof. Kuupole made the call at the fourth graduation and the 20th matriculation of the Catholic University College of Ghana at Fiapre near Sunyani on Saturday, where 196 students graduated and 480 fresh students were matriculated.
Prof. Kuupole believed an expanded catholic tertiary education in the country would offer more opportunities for young Ghanaians to be trained in an environment of excellence and discipline.
Dr. Anthony Bonnah Koomson, acting Vice Chancellor of Catholic University College of Ghana, advised the graduating class to pursue excellence in their endeavours, and urged the fresh students to utilise the opportunities offered by the college.
