The University held the 6th Congregation for the School of Graduate Studies on 18th May,2024 at the Sam Prempeh Hall, Ramseyer Training Centre, Abetifi-Kwahu.

Addressing the graduands, Rt. Rev. Dr. Abraham Nana Opare-Kwakye, Chancellor of the PUG and Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) said he was elated to be part of the occasion, especially as it was his first official visit to the University since he assumed the role of Chancellor of the University.

The Chancellor of PUG announced the establishment of an Artificial Intelligence Laboratory to enhance the teaching and learning of Information Communication Technology (ICT) at the University, reiterating that the Presbyterian Church of Ghana is keen to see the development of the University on all fronts.  

He explained that “The world is changing, and the University cannot be left behind,” stating that under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Virtual Security Africa, an ICT company will sponsor the construction of an Artificial Intelligence Laboratory worth One Million United States Dollars for the University.

The Chancellor informed the Congregation that the University leadership had already been informed and engagements had started while looking forward to the necessary paperwork to be done in the coming days for work to begin earnestly.

The Moderator also revealed that the Church was working closely with the Management of PUG to add to the infrastructure, improve human resources, and expand the programmes run by the University.

He assured the gathering that under his Chancellorship, the Church would not relent in its efforts to get the University seated at its rightful place among the League of Universities.

The Moderator was firm in his commitment to continue the scholarship for needy students of the University which was instituted by his predecessor, Very Rev. Prof. J.O.Y. Mante.

He therefore presented One Hundred Thousand Ghana Cedis to the University on behalf of the PCG to directly go into scholarship and bursary support for Presbyterian students who study at PUG.

In a wrap, Rt. Rev. Dr. Abraham Nana Opare-Kwakye counselled the graduands to never forget their alma mater and the values that the University holds dear  and stated that “the Presbyterian University Ghana was founded with Christian roots and espouses the principles of excellence, integrity, and service.”
