The trip includes lectures from scholars and visits to Ghanaian colleges and universities to meet with faculty, administrators and students. Additional sessions will be held with scholars and local experts on higher education in Ghana to explore current issues and government priorities. Topics will include curricular opportunities; college admissions requirements; distribution of students by class and ethnicity; college climate and student services.
