The Crystal Springs Foundation a charitable organization founded by Mike and Joyce Murray have donated $50,000 to help support Ashesi’s growth. Crystal Springs Foundation (CSF) promotes the democratization of educational and economic opportunity through support to selected projects throughout the world. CSF has been a long-term supporter of Ashesi and provided some of the initially funding to get the university started over seven years ago. We are very grateful for their continued support as we work to expand our academic offerings and quality education to even more students.

Over the past seven years Ashesi has grown from a student population of 30 to over 400. Our focus is on offering the best quality liberal arts university education in Africa. Our curriculum focuses not just on technical competence, but critical thinking, leadership and ethics. The success of our program is highlighted by the employment rate of our graduates; over 98% of Ashesi graduates received offers for employment or entered graduate school within six months of graduation. This year we are beginning construction on a new campus, located on one hundred acres, thirty minutes from Accra. The first phase of construction will complete academic buildings to support the education of over 600 students, including classrooms, computer labs and a library. Additionally, on campus housing will be constructed for 240 students.

We thank Crystal Springs Foundation for their continued support of quality higher education in Africa.
