Capacity Building


The ethos of the work of the Capacity Development and International Mobility Team is that strength in human capacity will translate into development which benefits the larger society.

The team seeks to build on core strengths of faculty, students and staff of the University of Ghana (UG) to achieve our goals, by organizing regular refresher workshops, seminar, conferences and interactive sessions to deepen knowledge and build capacity. 

Through the universities global partnerships, we facilitate collaboration with international institutions in areas of mutual interest. We manage a portfolio of scholarships and exchange programmes such as the Fox Fellowships at Yale and Commonwealth scholarship schemes to expose faculty, staff and students to a diverse range of academic opportunities.

In keeping with ORID’s core mandate the team strives for outcomes that contribute in a measurable way to the overall mission of the University.
