Presentation to the Academic Board of the University of Ghana of the Report of the Visitation Panel*, (* Passages in italics are direct quotations from the Report with formal recommendations in bold ), Sir John Daniel, 20 December 2007 // Members of the Academic Board, Colleagues: // It is a pleasure to be in Ghana once again and to present you with a summary of the Report of the Visitation Panel which I have had the honour to chair. Some of you heard my presentation to the University Council this morning. You will hear some of what you heard then again, but I shall take a bit more time with you and say more about our recommendations concerning Academic Operations and Infrastructure. // This Visitation Panel, which the Vice-Chancellor set up on behalf of Council almost a year ago, was a remarkable group of Ghanaian and international specialists whose collective expertise ranged over all aspects of higher education. Let me begin by naming them for you. // I have had the honour to chair the Panel. The Commonwealth of Learning, of which I am president, has donated my time for this task and supported the Panel's work in other ways.
