Office of Strategic Partnerships and Recruitment

Office of Strategic Partnerships & Recruitment (Africa)

Africa Initiative
The basis upon which the Office of Strategic Partners and Recruitment (Africa) was created dates back to November 28th, 2017 when Morgan hosted twelve Vice Chancellors from Nigerian Universities that concluded in formalizing relationships through MOU signing with four.  Subsequently, President Wilson visited Nigeria twice as a keynote Speaker that highlighted the Morgan vision for a globalized education.

Other initiatives by the President in Ghana with the aim of sustaining postgraduate programs and assisting in the increase of critical doctoral degree needs through universities in Africa generally remained a significant purpose in the emergence of an this Office.  The creation and approval of the Office of Strategic Partnerships and Recruitment (Africa) is primarily aimed at developing human capacity through sustainable partnerships with universities in Africa by furthering increased graduate admissions into the various disciplines that address targeted needs of the continent.
