2023 International Youth Day Celebration

In keeping with our mission to produce educated ethical leaders who care about their communities, a few Palmers identified problems in their communities and came up with projects to tackle those problems to commemorate the 2023 International Youth Day celebrations. The projects included clean-up exercises, educating community members on sanitation, personal hygiene, teenage pregnancy, hosting Curriculum Vitae (CV)/resume writing workshops, and education on sexually transmitted infections.

CV/Resume Clinic Workshop

In our quest to ensure all Palmers are career and entrepreneurship-ready, the Student Life and Career Services department organized a workshop dubbed “CV/Resume Clinic” on 16th August, 2023, for the 2023 summer school students. The seminar was facilitated by Mr. Emmanuel Nii Adama Mensah, a lecturer at Palm. The purpose of the seminar was to share with students the details and components of a CV/resume and enable them to produce professional CV/resumes. the students had the opportunity to have their CV/resumes reviewed for future use.

Palm Staff Retreat

The Leadership of Palm University held an annual faculty/staff retreat on campus on 19th August, 2023 to help prepare and position all faculty and staff for the ensuing academic year. The retreat also focused on how Palm can strategically position itself in graduating ethical and excellent leaders who will be ready for employment, entrepreneurship, and graduate school.

 Arrival of Freshmen and Orientation

The first freshmen cohort of the Class of 2027 arrived on campus on 25th August, 2023. Welcome to our latest Palmers!!! The freshmen were welcomed into the Palm community on Friday, 25th August, 2023. Although our students have come from different parts of the country, they all share common goals – a hope for a better future through quality liberal arts education at Palm University. During a 3-day orientation, the students were introduced to the culture and values of Palm University. They were told the Palm story and were introduced to the various departments, facilities, resources, services, centers, and academic systems as well as counseling services among others. They had the honor of being addressed by the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Palm University Foundation.

BSW/MSW Social Work Field Placement in Ghana

On Tuesday, 21st August, and 22nd August, 2023, three students from the University of Alabama (US) arrived safely at Palm University for their practicum in Ghana. The students have been taken through cultural training and orientation as part of their preparation practicum experience in their various organizational placements around the Ashaiman vicinity.
