Demographics of African Faculty Study: Ghana
There is a surge in students attending universities and colleges across sub-Saharan Africa.
This is due to population growth, economic development and increased participation rates in education. For universities and colleges to meet this demand, the supply of quality professors, tutors and academics is key.
Education sub-Saharan Africa (ESSA) has been working alongside the Government of Ghana, the Association of African Universities (AAU), the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) and Ghana’s National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) to pioneer a pilot study on this topic in Ghana.
This study was supported by funding from the Mastercard Foundation.
