During a working visit to Ghana in July this past summer, founder Patrick Awuah visited the Ghanaian Ministry of Education. He met with Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas, Deputy Minister of Education in charge of tertiary education, to discuss the Ashesi University project and the process of accrediting the school. Dr. Chambas was very enthusiastic and optimistic about the project, as reflected in the strong letter of endorsement he then drafted on our behalf. [See Dr. Chamba's letter] The Ministry of Education has asserted its desire to see private investment in tertiary education, placing its goals very much in alignment with our vision for Ashesi University.
