A Brief History of Regent University


The Regent University College of Science and Technology, Regent-Ghana, is located in Accra, Ghana. It was registered in September 2003 as a company limited by guarantee. It received accreditation to operate as a tertiary institution in 2004, and in January 2005  it started its maiden lectures with about 30 pioneer students at its maiden campus, the Trinity Campus, at Mataheko, near Accra.

It initially operated  satellite campuses  at   Dansoman, Lartebiorkoshie, and on Graphic, Fadama, Accra. Today Regent-Ghana is located on the  main campus at the McCarthy Hill to the west of Accra. 

Regent-Ghana now has four Schools, namely, School of Business and Leadership (SBL)School of Informatics Engineering & Technology (SIET)Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS), and the Institute of Languages & General Studies. There is also the Language Centre and a newly-established Centre for Academic Writing. A number of interdisciplinary programmes cross the boundaries between schools and disciplines.

Locally, Regent-Ghana is affiliated to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology,  Kumasi; University of Education, Winneba and the Trinity Theological Seminary at Legon, Accra. Its international partners are   Trier University of Applied Sciences, Umwelt campus, Birkenfield, Germany; Maastricht School of management, Netherlands;  and St Mary's university of Canada. The University is also a member of the Conference of Heads of Private Universities, Ghana. 

The mission of Regent-Ghana is raising highly skilful, visionary, Ethical, and God-fearing leaders to function as change agents. The university community shares in the vision of the founder and president, Prof. E. Kingsley Larbi, to establish and maintain one of the leading and finest institutions in the world. 

It is dedicated to ensuring that every member of faculty, staff, and alumni of the University is committed to socio-economic and spiritual renewal. This understanding informs and fashions the investment we make into our students, faculty, and supporting staff. Motivated by a dedicated and visionary leadership, ICT-driven curricula, and Christian ethical values, we aim at having our students fully prepared to effectively spearhead national and industrial development anywhere in the global community. 

The principal governing body of the university is the University Council. Authority in purely academic matters lies with the Senate (Senatus Academicus). The Regent Ghana Students' Union (RGSU) provides a variety of services and facilities for the student population. The RGSU executives and parliament represent students on various committees and organizations, both within and without the university.
