CSUC Embarks On Ambitious Plan to Celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2024 – Story by IAO

The President of the Christian Service University College, Prof. Sam Afrane has disclosed through the media to all stakeholders that starting from September 2023, the institution will embark on a massive and ambitious 50th anniversary celebration that will be climaxed in September 2024 under the theme: “CSUC @ 50: Achievements, Challenges, and Prospects”. This was made known during a media briefing held on Wednesday July 26, 2023 at the CSUC Campus.
CSUC was established in 1974 by WEC missionaries to provide theological education focusing on training pastors and church leaders to promote the Great Commission. After several years of successful theological training, the institution metamorphosed into a liberal arts Christian University College in 2004 extending its tentacles to provide quality research-based and world class tertiary education in business, communication, education, planning, computer science, information technology and nursing. Currently, the University College runs over 10 undergraduate and 7 postgraduate programmes (and still counting) and has made significant strides by training over 8000 men and women who are currently impacting and transforming society.
Besides the intellectual and human resource capacity gains that have receive national and international prominence, the University College has within its walls, seen massive improvement of infrastructure and staff development even though there are still deficits to be addressed. It is against this backdrop that the University College is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the following objectives:
1. to reflect on the past 50 years of success and looking forward to the future;
2. to raise the awareness of CSUC’ s unique history, showcase its growing impact and show how to promote its visibility and positive reputation in Ghana and abroad;
3. leverage on its achievements to mobilize support and resources to step boldly into the next 50 years.IMG_0322
