Supporting Our Future- Palm University’s Permanent Campus

Palm Institute is a growing liberal arts institution with great promise. Our vision is to continue growing steadily while keeping the needs of Ghanaian and African students, communities and industries in mind. As a result, Palm Institute needs to expand its facilities and strategically add more relevant programs at the degree level in order to diversify what we offer to our students. A building that meets the standards of the National Accreditation Board (NAB) would help us realize our vision to add HND programs (three-year Higher National Diploma) and eventually, four-year degree programs.

Our short-term goal is to relocate to a permanent campus to give our students the most convenient environment for teaching and learning. This would afford us the opportunity to continue to provide a quality liberal arts education that is often a missing ingredient in our higher educational institutions.

Details of Permanent Campus

Location: Manya Jorpanya, Shai Hills: On the Tema - Akosombo Road. Near Shai Hills Forest Reserve (Twenty minutes from Tema)

Cost: $100,000

Duration: 8 to 12 months

The first-phase of the permanent campus would include the following:

  • Six lecture halls
  • Five administrative offices
  • Computer laboratory and library
  • Cafeteria
  • Infirmary 
  • Store room 
  • Multipurpose hall

Progress So Far
