The principal motif of the University Crest, the “AdinkraNtesie” is a Ghanaian cultural symbol associated with wisdom and knowledge as the essential ingredients of education.

Institute for Educational Research and Innovation Studies


Research is critical to the mainstay of every university. It is one of the three core functions of every university, namely, teaching, research and community engagement. Research and scholarship provide opportunities for universities to create new knowledge for themselves, academia and for the country. It enables students to learn analytical, creative and problem solving skills that are required for sustainable development. Lack of sufficient research undermines the core business of the university.
