The Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni expressed delight to have them on board. He said that UEW would take the collaboration seriously and ensure that they build on each other’s strengths and also strengthen each other to overcome the weaknesses they might have.   

“We happen to have started earlier than you and so are in a situation where we are an autonomous University but I think our autonomy would be shown in how effectively we support other people to become like us and even bigger than us.” He said.

The representatives of the visiting institutions raised hopes of having a fruitful partnership with UEW. “Having come all the way from Accra and Takoradi to discover you (UEW) here, we are hoping that just as you said, this relationship will go further than we expect. We didn’t choose UEW for nothing, we knew what we were bargaining for.”
