A strategic plan to transform the Takoradi Technical University – TTU, has been launched in Takoradi.

The plan seeks to make the technical university a world-class institution of higher learning, rooted in quality teaching and applied research.

The strategic plan comes under four broad themes, which were derived from the Sustainable Development Goals. They are Institutional Development; Applied Research, Innovation and Infrastructure Development; Social and Environmental Development.

The objectives include providing a clear direction for the university, and promoting optimum utilization of available resources.

Others are responsiveness to environmental forces such as demands and expectations, creating opportunities for growth, as well as expansion and sustainability.

Another objective is setting clear targets and indicators against which TTU’s performance will be measured. An endowment fund to provide financial support for the university’s research, teaching and other activities was launched.

The strategic plan comes with a Disability Support and Services Initiative, to provide an academic setting where students with disability are supported to realize their full potential.

Currently, there are seventy-four students with disability at the university. Reverend Professor John Frank Eshun is the Vice Chancellor of the Takoradi Technical University – TTU.

The Western Regional Minister, Mr. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah gave the assurance that the Regional Coordinating Council would help in the efforts to realize the objectives.

The Minister for Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum said the destiny of the country is in the hands of educators. He therefore charged the universities to focus on churning out graduates who would spearhead the country’s transformational agenda.

The implementation of the strategic plan is expected to cost about 120 million Ghana cedis.
