Dominion University College (DUC) is an autonomous private tertiary institution sponsored by Action Chapel International (ACI) formerly known as Christian Action Faith Ministries International (CAFM), a Christian organisation that has trained many renowned Christian leaders serving in Ghana and abroad for over thirty years.
ACI has conceived DUC as an effective avenue for its continued contribution to Ghana’s sociol-economic development. DUC is established to set a distinctive path for educational excellence in Ghana. Although grounded in Judeo-Christian religious principles within the African context, DUC is open to students of all race and creed.
ACI firmly believes that morality lies at the base of sound tertiary education. To this end, DUC is established to provide a career-focused training, instruction and research based on sound ethical and moral principles. This makes DUC a paragon of excellence in tertiary education and professional training.
The primary goal of DUC is to provide quality education, and to become a first choice of university for students, parents and faculty both locally and internationally.
DUC also aspires to be a leading centre of academic excellence recognised not only in Ghana, but across Africa and the World. Towards this objective, DUC will pursue four principal strategic directions:
(a) Quality Education;
(b) Superb Student Experience;
(c) Financial Stewardship; and
(d) Social Responsibility.
Indeed, DUC will channel much effort and resources into building a Christian university characterised by excellence in all related experiences, with its graduates identified with virtues such as integrity and honesty in their professional life. Students can expect the best of everything in their learning environment at DUC.
