About: The University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) started as the Tarkwa Technical Institute (TTI) on 3rd November, 1952 but was officially commissioned by the Government of Ghana, more precisely by His Excellency the Governor of the Gold Coast, Sir Charles Noble Arden Clarke, on 7th October, 1953. In 1961, the Government, upon the advocacy of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, redefined the mission of TTI to incorporate the training of mining technicians and other middle level manpower for the country’s mining and related industries. In 1961, it was reorganized to become the Tarkwa School of Mines (TSM) to train the required manpower for the mining and allied industries in Ghana. In 1976, the Government took cognizance of the capability of TSM and its strategic location, Tarkwa, which is at the centre of mining activities in the country. As this location gave TSM a special strength for mining education, TSM was affiliated to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as a faculty of the University so as to enable TSM offer degree, diploma and certificate programmes in mining and related fields. The name TSM was changed to KNUST School of Mines (KNUSTSM), Tarkwa. The KNUSTSM, Tarkwa and the Kumasi School of Mines were put together to become the Institute of Mining and Mineral Engineering (IMME). In 1988, a University Rationalization Committee (URC), commissioned by the Ministry of Education, recommended the development of the School and its conversion into a University. In 2000, the conversion of KNUSTSM into a University was again strongly recommended by Louis Berger Inc. in association with Kwame Asante and Associates in a report on partial commercialization of KNUST. In 2001, the Council of KNUST considered and approved proposals and recommendations of the Academic Board to merge the School of Mines at Kumasi and the School of Mines at Tarkwa into the Western University College of KNUST, Tarkwa. On 3rd November, 2004, at exactly 11.35hrs GMT, the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana passed the bill on the University of Mines and Technology into an Act of Parliament. On 11th November, 2004, the President of Ghana gave the Presidential Assent and on 12th November, 2004 the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa Act 2004 (Act 677) was gazetted and thus, became a law. Vision and Mission Statements Vision The vision of the University is to be a Centre of Excellence in Ghana and Africa for producing world-class professionals in the fields of mining, petroleum, technology and related disciplines. Mission The mission is to provide higher education in mining, petroleum, technology and related disciplines through effective teaching and learning; to promote knowledge through active research and dissemination of information and to offer professional services through extension activities to the mining and allied industries.

About: All Nations University College (ANUC) was established by the All Nations Full Gospel Church (ANFGC), Toronto, Canada through the All Nations International Development Agency (ANIDA). The Progenitor of the vision, Dr. Samuel Donkor challenged the African diaspora in North America to support the development of Africa by investing in Human Resource Development through quality higher education. The mission was to develop a new breed of leaders for the continent with holistic education that emphasizes academic excellence, Christian values, discipline and ethical values in a Christ centered environment. The government of Ghana readily embraced the idea in 1988, when Dr. Donkor sought permission for the All Nations University. But it was not until 1996 when the master plan was presented to the National Accreditation Board (NAB). Upon the advice of NAB, the University was incorporated in April 1996 and subsequently received the authority to establish the All Nations University in May 1996. After years of preparations, the University opened its doors to 37 pioneering students on November 4, 2002 for the Business and Computer Science undergraduate programs. Today ANUC has 12 accredited programs and over 2500 students
About: Nyansapo College, an offspring institution of the internationally acclaimed Institute of Diplomatic Practice and Development Policies (I-2DP) in Accra, is the latest academic institution in Ghana established specifically to enhance capacity building of African officials. The aim of the College is to train more knowledgeable and confident practitioners to accelerate Africa’s march towards sustainable development and plausible integration into the global system. Through Nyansapo College, Africa’s academia and leading practitioners in International Development Cooperation (IDC) as well as some recognised friends of Africa in that field are joining hands to enhance the continent’s prospects in the global political economy. Provision of specialised knowledge and sharpening of skills for African envoys and officials in both public and private sectors charged with the international relations of their respective establishments will be the hallmark of Nyansapo College. Nyansapo College joins the limited group of non-state African institutions of higher learning in International Relations which are able to address global issues from independent and objective positions with the aim of demonstrating the fact that Africa’s need for more of such institutions cannot be over-emphasised. Indeed, the increasingly complex nature of contemporary International Relations has turned the latter into such a vast and varied field that only those who are well versed in the utilisation of modern tools of Diplomacy and Development Cooperation can function effectively. Nyansapo College offers the opportunity of having the knowledge and skills of professionals constantly upgraded at home at a relatively lower cost than abroad, with the added advantage of opening their training programmes to foreign participants and thereby offering all participating students the exposure needed to appreciate global issues from different perspectives.
