about us

In early 2011, the Republic of Korea made an offer to the University of Ghana to establish an Information Access Center (IAC) under the auspices of Korean Official Development Centre (ODA). The facility is made up of Internet Lounge, Computer Laboratory, Seminar Room and an Administrative Office equipped with computers, LCD projector, printers, video conference equipment and CCTV among others. For the University of Ghana to access this assistance, it was required that: (1) The University provides space with stable power supply, telephone and internet connectivity, security for the IAC equipment and 4 Mbps internet bandwidth through the existing internet infrastructure, and (2) The University should also have the capacity to operate and take full responsibility of the Centre and its equipment when it is established. The ultra-modern facility was inaugurated in April 2012 and it is expected to help raise Information Technology literacy and awareness in Ghana as well as promote cooperation in the field of Information Technology between Ghana and Korea. The Centre was jointly inaugurated by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Research, Innovation and Development, Prof. John Gyapong, who deputized for the Vice-Chancellor, the Korean Ambassador to Ghana, His Excellency Kyun Jaemin, and the Deputy Minister of Communications, Hon. Ernest Attuquaye Armah, at a colourful ceremony at Legon.
