Summary

This project has built the first phase of our permanent campus on 57 acre land; about an hour's drive, East of Accra. Our current location gives our students the most convenient environment for teaching and learning. It has given us the opportunity to provide the kind of liberal arts education we envisioned in Ghana. Relocating to a suitable campus has enabled us make progress in the accreditation process. Securing accreditation would allow us to run three and four year degree programs.

Challenge

Palm Institute initial facility was rented on an annual basis totaling $24,000 per year which impacted Palm Institute's limited financial resources. On the other hand, our student body is rapidly growing and there is the need to expand our facilities to accommodate our growing student population.

Solution

The development of a campus that meets the National Accreditation Board (NAB) standards in Ghana is necessary to move to offer three and four-year degree programs and create a far more financially sustainable institution and the ability to diversify the programs offered to students in a positive and conducive learning environment.

Long-Term Impact

Providing higher education with an emphasis on critical thinking and leadership skills will enable the next generation of African leaders to provide ethical and morally sound leadership to their communities. The improvement that has occurred after the academic year for the total number of 40 students has been tremendous, with additional time and investment, the personal and academic growth for our students can be exponential
