CSUC Holds 36th Graduation Ceremony

CSUC commemorated its 36th Graduation Ceremony with a call on graduates to maintain high professional standards in their work.

Mr. Martin Eson-Benjamin, Chief Executive Officer of Millennium Development Authority and Guest Speaker for the occasion, made this call, and also asked the graduates to eschew greediness, bribery and corruption, which he described as the fruits of moral decadence in the country.

Mr. Eson-Benjamin congratulated the graduates and asked them to work hard, adding that they should carry out their duties without compromising on quality and excellence.

The ceremony which was under the theme, “The Christian as an Agent of Change” was held to confer degree and diploma awards on a total of 520 students from the departments of Theology, Business Administration, Computer Science and Communication Studies. The conferment of the awards was performed by Dr. Daniel Ofori, a representative of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Legon.

Three hundred and thirty five out of the total number were males, while 185 were females. Ninety two students graduated with first class honours, 174 obtained second class upper division, while 218 had second class lower division. Thirty five attained third class while one student was awarded a pass.

Rt. Rev. Prof. Osei Safo-Kantanka, Chairman of Council of CSUC, in his welcome address, underscored the vital role private universities play in national development. “Private universities have always played very important roles in providing education for the masses of our people. Our (Christian universities) aim is never to make money but to contribute to human development which is crucial to eliminating poverty and improving the lives of our people,” he stressed.

Rt. Rev. Prof. Safo-Kantanka who is also the Bishop of the Kumasi Diocese of the Methodist Church Ghana, however reiterated that strict educational policies such as stringent admission requirements were the main challenges facing private universities.

He therefore called on the National Accreditation Board to adopt flexible admission requirements that would give brilliant students another opportunity to excel. He also called on Councils of private universities to come together to demand government’s support and intervention for the growth of private universities.
