In the 14th edition of the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, Regent University College of Science & Technology is ranked 3rd best university in Ghana. It came after Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (ranked first) and the University of Ghana, Legon (ranked 2nd). The ranking considered the global performance of the universities based on indices including, teaching commitment, international prestige, community engagement, knowledge and technological transfer. It also considered website based variables such as number of potential web authors, open access mandates and technological focus.
On the international scene, judging from the global rankings, it is quite evident that the Ghanaian institutions will have to double up their efforts in order to be counted among the best institutions in the world.
Commenting on the global rankings during a meeting with the academic staff of Regent University College of Science & Technology, Prof. E. Kingsley Larbi, President and CEO of the University, indicated that much as he rejoices that Regent University is currently ranked as the third best university in Ghana, as an institution with a national agenda and a global focus, his concentration is more on how well it is doing nationally. “That should be the focus of all stakeholders at Regent,” he challenged the staff.
As he congratulated all stakeholders (students, faculty, management, and staff) for their dedication and hard work, he concluded that as the institution is aiming at becoming a world-class university within the next ten years, it is imperative that all stakeholders continue to strive towards the pursuit of what is considered 'best practices' within the academic world.
