BERRIEN SPRINGS, Mich.—On Monday, Nov. 12, Andrea Luxton, president, signed a formal partnership agreement with the government of Ghana at a meeting with His Excellency, Dr. Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah, the 19th ambassador of the Republic of Ghana to the United States of America.
The agreement is part of the Ghanaian government’s commitment to expand educational opportunities for its citizens, including a focus on assuring a free senior high school education for each of its citizens and expanding opportunities within Ghana and throughout the world for university-level education.
This new agreement will welcome its first participants in summer 2019.
“Andrews University is proud to be one of the most ethnically and internationally diverse national universities in the United States, and this agreement with the government of Ghana expands and deepens our commitment to be a place where world changers are made,” says Luxton.
“In my professional experience, I’ve had the opportunity to see the impact and possibilities that come with further education. If we talk about socio-economic development in our society, and of Ghana in particular, I believe that will best and truly come as we invest in our students and open the door to the possibilities of the future that come with further education,” says Adjei-Barwuah, who was educated in Ghana, England and the United States and who has taught in universities in England.
Individuals who would like to be considered for participation in this partnership should send an email to email@example.com. For a full list of requirements for international students, visit andrews.edu/undergrad/apply/international.
