Prof. Boakye inducted Vice-Chancellor of CCTU

A professor of Tourism Management of the University of Cape Coast, Prof. Kwaku Adutwum Ayim Boakye, has been invested as the Vice-Chancellor of the Cape Coast Technical University (CCTU) pledging an open, inclusive and transformative leadership to catapult the university to the next level.


He said he would work with a corporate and an entrepreneurial mindset to bring the university to greatness.

"I pledge an open, inclusive, transformative and dedicated stewardship, which provides the right leadership to steer CCTU to the next level of greatness," he stated.

He stated that in line with CCTU's 2021-2025 strategic plan, the university had instituted strategies to recognise the students as its primary clients and subsequently create an environment that delivers the optimum life learning experience for them.

The occasion was also used to induct Dr Anthony Hercules Turkson as registrar of the university.

Prof. Boakye said his administration would make efforts at providing smart classrooms for effective teaching and learning.


He stated that his administration would institutionalise income generation from the university's numerous potential revenue sources such as mechanical and auto workshops, catering, greenhouse and grant writing.

Capacity building

Prof. Boakye said he would also work to build capacity of the teaching staff to adopt not only contemporary and relevant instructional pedagogies but also being recognised as well-respected global scholars.

He said he would work with relevant stakeholders to deepen the professionalism of the administrative cadre to adopt a more corporate mindset, undertake a major infrastructure drive and equipment drive and rigorously pursue the university's niche area to position CCTU as a centre of excellence in renewable energy and its related technologies.

Prof. Boakye said he would further deepen and concretise relationships with industry and other international universities to create mutually beneficial partnerships.

The Chairman of the University Governing Council, Prof. Harold Amonoo Kuofi, urged Prof. Boakye to build bridges and work to galvanise all for the development of the university.

The Chairman of the Vice-Chancellors on Technical Universities of Ghana, Prof. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah, urged Prof. Boakye to pay attention to critics, adding that he should not be tempted to exclude anyone in the management of the administration.


Prof. Boakye joined the University of Cape Coast in 2002 as a senior research assistant at the Department of Geography and Tourism.

He was appointed lecturer in 2004 and promoted to senior lecturer in 2009.

Prof. Boakye became an associate professor in 2013 and professor in 2017.
