American Universities Visit Ghana

Counselor for Public Affairs Roberto Quiroz II and our Public Affairs team welcomed an eight person delegation from the African University College of Communications (AUCC) and Morgan State University (MSU) of Maryland on January 22.

The U.S. Embassy in Accra recently welcomed officials from two American universities visiting Ghana to promote opportunities for Ghanaian students.  Counselor for Public Affairs Roberto Quiroz II, Cultural Attaché Elizabeth Ategou, Regional Educational Advising Coordinator (REAC) for EducationUSA in West and Central Africa Diane Weisz Young, Regional Public Engagement Specialist (REPS) Alison F. McKee, and EducationUSA Advisor Bernice Affotey welcomed officials from Ghana’s African University College of Communications (AUCC) and their American partner institution Morgan State University (MSU) of Maryland on January 22, and the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) on January 23.

Counselor for Public Affairs Roberto Quiroz II and our Public Affairs team welcomed a team from University of Central Arkansas led by President, Dr. Houston H. Davis on January 23.


Mr. Quiroz said: “One of the U.S. Embassy’s highest priorities is to promote partnerships between American and Ghanaian colleges and universities, as well as to expand opportunities for Ghanaians to study in the United States.  We are thankful for the leadership and support of university administrators here in Ghana and in the United States who make these exchanges possible.  Each year, many officials from American academic institutions visit Ghana to recruit Ghanaian students.  The visits by Morgan State University and the University of Central Arkansas this week exemplify the commitment by our universities to recruit greater numbers of Ghanaians and provide them an academic and campus experience which will offer them the tools to meet their professional goals and contribute their talents towards promoting development in all sectors of Ghana.”
