About Lancaster University Ghana, Accra

1947 a public meeting in Lancaster endorsed a proposal that there might be a university college established in the city. Although the idea lapsed due to a lack of government funding, in early 1961 it was revived by Lancashire County Council, and a Promotion Committee for a University in North-West Lancashire, chaired by Lord Derby, presented a proposal to the University Grants Committee for Lancaster to be chosen.
