The Chairperson of the University Council, Mrs. Nancy Olufola Campbell Thompson, has expressed her willingness to work with management of the UCC to put the University on a higher pedestal. Mrs. Thompson gave this assurance when she interacted with management of the University as part of her familiarisation tour on campus.
The Chairperson expressed excitement about the massive expansion the University had witnessed over the years. She noted that it was high time the University gained the needed prominence it deserved. “I’m aware of the numerous achievements of the University and I pledge to help move UCC further to a higher height” she added. Mrs. Thompson, an alumna of UCC, recalled her student days from 1964 to 1968 and added that the University was relatively young during those periods. She indicated that “I normally find myself in places I never expect and I didn’t think that I will have anything to do with the University, especially at this time of my age”.
She commended the various leadership of the University for contributing to the development of UCC as one of the best institutions in Ghana and beyond and called for maximum cooperation from the current management to continue with the good work.
On behalf of management, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, thanked the Chairperson for finding time to interact with them. He promised that they would work closely with her to advance the cause of UCC.
The meeting was attended by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. George K. T. Oduro; Registrar, Mr. John Kofi Nyan and some Provosts and Directors. The Chairperson was later accompanied by the Vice-Chancellor, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Registrar on a tour to various facilities on campus and at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital.
