Management of Ashesi University has disclosed that the Institution will not resume physical academic activities despite the President’s directive to reopen schools for final year students.
President Akufo-Addo announced in a national address on Sunday, May 31, 2020 that schools can reopen for all final year students to prepare them for their exit examinations, effective June 15, 2020.
Taking to its official Twitter account, the University announced that final year students at Ashesi have mostly been able to complete their semester online, hence will not return to campus as the President ordered.
“With faculty support, final year students at Ashesi have mostly been able to complete their semester online. As a result, seniors will not be returning to campus following the partial reopening of schools by the Government of Ghana.”
The University said seniors with outstanding work to be submitted will continue to work with their faculty online.
Also, all other members of the community will continue to operate online as they have since March 30, 2020 and protocols for working, teaching, and learning remain in place.
“Seniors with outstanding work to be submitted will continue to work with their faculty online. We are thankful to everyone at Ashesi for holding steady through the last half of the 2019/2020 academic year. It has been a period of remarkable collaboration and effort.”
