A two-member delegation from the Kennesaw State University (KSU) has held discussions with the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, on a new initiative set to be rolled out by KSU in 2019/2020 academic year.
According to the leader of delegation, Prof. Sam Baidoo, the new initiative will centre on educational abroad, where students from KSU would visit the University of Cape Coast (UCC) for a six-week experiential training programme.
