JAYEE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
JAYEE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
About: JAYEE is the acronym of ‘JOHN EMMANUEL’, the initials of the names of the founder and President, Mr J E Donkoh, of the JAYEE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE. The University College started modestly as a secretarial school with eight (8) students at YMCA, Adabraka – Accra in 1988. With time, the students’ number grew, and it became necessary for a more spacious campus. Jayee consequently, relocated to the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra. The name was changed from Jayee Secretarial School to Jayee Professional Training Institute. The programmes that were run included English and French Languages (beginner, intermediate and proficiency), Computer programmes, Computer Integrated Secretaryship and Bi-lingual Secretaryship. The desire to expand and include marketable and more preferred programmes led to the acquisition of its present campus at Royal Palm Avenue, McCarthy Hill on the Mallam – Kasoa highway in 1999. Jayee got affiliated to the University of Education, Winneba in 2004 and re-named as Jayee Institute. The Institute was accredited by the National Accreditation Board to run a 3-year Advanced Diploma in Journalism (with options in Sports Reporting, Political Reporting, Environmental Reporting, and Economic Reporting) and Business Administration (with options in Accounting, Secretaryship and Management, Public Relations and Marketing). There is a 2-year Non-Tertiary Diploma in Office Management and Secretaryship. Since then Jayee’s academic affairs have been monitored by her mentor, the University of Education, Winneba. In 2008, the National Accreditation Board re-accredited Jayee to run 4-year degree programmes.

UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
About: THE UNIVERSITY OF GHANA was founded in 1948 as the University College of the Gold Coast on the recommendation of the Asquith Commission, on Higher Education in the then British colonies. The Asquith Commission, which was set up in 1943 to investigate Higher Education, recommended among other things, the setting up of University Colleges in association with the University of London. This was followed up by a number of separate Commissions in different regions. The West Africa Commission was under the Chairmanship of the Rt. Hon. Walter Elliot. The Elliot Commission published a majority report which recommended the establishment of two University Colleges in the Gold Coast (Ghana) and Nigeria, and a minority report which held that only one University College for the whole of British West Africa was feasible. The British Government at first accepted the minority report of the Elliot Commission and decided that a University College for the whole of British West Africa should be established at Ibadan in Nigeria. But the people of the Gold Coast could not accept this recommendation. Led by the scholar and politician, the late Dr. J.B. Danquah, they urged the Gold Coast Government to inform the British Government that the Gold Coast could support a University College. The British Government accordingly reviewed its decision and agreed to the establishment of the University College of the Gold Coast. The University College of the Gold Coast was founded by Ordinance on August 11, 1948 for the purpose of providing for and promoting university education, learning and research. Its first Principal was the late Mr. David Mowbray Balme. Mr. Balme was far-sighted, courageous and dedicated to the promotion of scholarship. By his vision, industry and single-mindedness of purpose, he built a college and laid the foundations for a sound University which is now a source of pride. In his ten years of Principalship, he created an institution whose key-note was orderly living with dignity in a community of scholars. One of the recommendations of the Asquith Commission was that the British Government should set up an Inter-Universities Council to advise on all matters relating to Higher Education in the new British Colonies. The Inter-Universities Council served the new University College of the Gold Coast in an advisory capacity, but it approved all academic appointments. This arrangement helped the College to maintain the high academic standards associated with the Universities in Britain. Also, it enabled the College to seek support of the Council in obtaining funds from the United Kingdom Government sources. From its inception, the University College of the Gold Coast was admitted to the Scheme of Special Relationship extended by the University of London to certain English and overseas University Colleges. Under this scheme, the University College was allowed to teach for the external degree examinations of London University. It also allowed the College to modify the London syllabuses to suit local conditions and to take part in the setting and marking of examinations. But London University gave final approval to courses and examinations since the degrees given were those of the University of London. For thirteen years, therefore, the University College looked up to two separate institutions in Great Britain: to the Inter-Universities Council for guidance on its broad policy, and to the University of London for approval and control of details of degree regulations. The University College benefitted greatly from this arrangement which certainly helped to maintain its high academic standards. In the 1960-61 academic year, the College Council made a request to the Government of Ghana for legislation to constitute the University College into a University with the power to award its own degrees. The Government appointed an International Commission to examine the problem. On the recommendations of that Commission, the University of Ghana was set up by an Act of Parliament on October 1, 1961 (Act 79). The then President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, became the first Chancellor of the University, with Nana Kobina Nketsia IV, BLitt DPhil (Oxon), Omanhene of Essikado, as the (Interim) Vice Chancellor.The University of Ghana, the premier university and the largest university in Ghana was founded as the University College of the Gold Coast by Ordinance on August 11, 1948 for the purpose of providing and promoting university education, learning and research. As a University poised to distinguish itself in the area of research to make an impact at the national and international level, the University has launched a new Strategic Plan. http://www.ug.edu.gh/pad/publication/ug-strategic-plan This new strategic plan (2014-2024) is intended to consolidate the gains made from the review of the University’s mission and practices and situate these within the context of a very dynamic environment of higher education in Ghana and beyond. Our Vision To become a world class research-intensive University over the next decade. Our Mission We will create an enabling environment that makes University of Ghana increasingly relevant to national and global development through cutting-edge research as well as high quality teaching and learning.

GHANA INSTITUTE OF JOURNALISM (GIJ)
GHANA INSTITUTE OF JOURNALISM (GIJ)
About: Studying at GIJ offers numerous advantages. The school attracts lecturers and speakers who are experts in the field as well as students who already work in media and communication. Thus students gain invaluable opportunities to learn from peers and practitioners. The Institute is conveniently located at Ringway, Osu, close to the centre of major businesses and Ministries of Government in Accra. It is a few minutes from the Parliament House, Accra Conference Centre, National Theatre, and main sports stadium, making it easy for students to cover a wide range of events. History The Ghana Institute of Journalism, formerly The Ghana School of Journalism, was officially opened on Monday, 16th October, 1959, by the then Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Mr. Kofi Baako. The school was established by the Kwame Nkrumah government to provide training in journalism toward the development of a patriotic cadre of journalists to play an active role in the emancipation of the African continent. Initially a department of the Accra Technical Institute (now Accra Polytechnic), the school had as its first principal and journalism tutor, Mr. Richard McMillan, then retiring as Director of British Information Services in Ghana. In 1966, the school moved to the present site which used to house the Ghana Press Club. Over the years, the Institute has undergone significant changes, and owes its current tertiary status to the following legislative instruments. 1974 Decree Establishing GIJ In 1974, the National Redemption Council (NRC) passed a legislative instrument (NRCD 275) formally establishing the Ghana Institute of Journalism. The decree set as objects of the Institute the following: a) To train young men and women in the skills and techniques of journalism, mass communication, advertising and public relations. b) To organise classes, lectures, seminars, demonstrations, experiments, researches and practical training in all aspects of journalism and mass communication. For several decades these objectives served as the Institute’s core functions in training and awarding diplomas and certificates in communication studies. 2006 Act Elevating GIJ to Tertiary Status The Parliament of the Fourth Republic and the President enacted the Ghana Institute of Journalism Act, 2006 (Act 717) to transform the Institute into a degree-awarding tertiary institution. Subsequently, the President granted a Charter to enable the Institute award its own degrees, diplomas and certificates for programmes accredited by the National Accreditation Board. This certificate was assented to by the President in August 2006, with a Gazette notification on 1st September 2006. The Ghana Institute of Journalism has now become a fully fledged communication training institution with the status of a university. As public policy demands, the Institute has now been placed under the Ministry of Education, and it is now directly under the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE). GIJ has embraced the responsibilities and challenges presented by its new tertiary status, and continues to fulfil its mission to serve the needs of students, the media industry and society. Administration The Institute is administered by a governing council, an executive management board, the academic board, and other departments, units and committees. Vision To be the preferred communications training institute in Africa, upholding high academic standards and producing world class professionals for the transformation of society. Mission To remain a highly academic professional communications institution serving the needs of students, industry and society.
