NAB ACCREDITS PALM INSTITUTE

In June 2015, Palm Institute commenced the journey of formally applying for Institutional Accreditation and Program Accreditation with the National Accreditation Board (NAB). The above credentials were necessary prerequisites to commencing operations as a recognized degree-awarding tertiary institution in Ghana. The program accreditation process required affiliation with a chartered university for mentoring; hence Palm Institute took steps to affiliate with the University of Cape Coast (UCC). A formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Palm Institute and UCC to that effect in October 2019.

In May 2020, the National Accreditation Board granted Palm Institute the mandate to operate as an accredited degree-awarding tertiary institution in Ghana to award a Bachelor of Science in Business Information Technology.

The university-college sits on 57-acres of land with its initial campus building that houses well-furnished lecture halls, administrative offices, a cafeteria, a library and a multi-purpose hall.

The National Accreditation Board (NAB) has granted Institutional and Program Accreditation to Palm Institute to run a Bachelor of Science in Business Information Technology (BSc. BIT). The BSc. Business Information Technology program places emphasis on hands-on learning and problem-solving skills. The program would equip students with skills to create long-term solutions to Africa’s Information Technology challenges and deploy better-designed infrastructure for local and international needs.

Palm Institute is located in Manya Jorpanya, Shai Hills in the Shai Osudoku District in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.

Palm Goes Green!

Since we moved our campus from Accra to Manya Jorpanya in Shai Hills in the Greater Accra Region in September 2018, Palm Institute has relied on a diesel-powered generator as its main source for generating electricity. While classes were in session, over $1,000 a month was being spent to power the generator to facilitate teaching, learning and all administrative work.  

In January 2020, Palm Institute installed 22 solar panels, eight batteries and three inverters to generate enough electricity to power Palm Institute. The system will generate over 5,475 kWh of electricity a year giving Palm Institute a clean, efficient, reliable and sustainable source of electricity.

The solar installation brings significant financial relief and is contributing greatly towards efficient day-to-day operations. This marks the beginning of Palm Institute’s desire to create and model sustainable and renewable energy in Ghana and decrease the negative impact of diesel emissions on our environment. 

We are grateful to our donors for their continued support. Thank you!
