The aim of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC) was to build on the reputation of the Church as a provider of holistic quality higher education across the world and to make a fundamental contribution to the delivery of quality tertiary education in Ghana. The University intends to set high academic standards and radically transform the educational environment of Ghana, by inculcating high moral standards and impart gospel values to students in their integral formation in the course of their University education. Therefore, the University was mandated to train human resources that were knowledgeable and equipped with the required technical, professional competence but more importantly, human resources that were selfless, dedicated and God-fearing.
