Office of Student & Community Affairs
The Office of Student and Community Affairs exists so that students can get more than they ever believed possible from their college experience, and from themselves.
The Student Affairs team gets to know about incoming students soon after Admissions decisions are made. First, we hold individual sessions to help the new students to unearth and declare their skills, talents, strengths, and interests. Then we support and track them, as they build a steadily maturing personal portfolio, through a combination of learning experiences, internships, and exposure. Academic City is particularly well suited to customizing the attention it gives to engaged, action-oriented young adults, so this process proves to be very stimulating for the students.
Civic engagement is the closest students get to engage in community projects while in university. Such experiences also give students exposure to transferable skills for the world of work. The hope is that students will be able to work on civic projects that complement their majors, and collaborate with classmates to achieve tangible and impactful results.
Academic City strives to have a positive impact on the host community of Haatso, Accra, and the Western African region as a whole.
