Welcome to the Spiritan University College, ejisu-ghana.

Established in 1990, SUC is a private higher Institution officially accredited/recognized by the National Accreditation Board,Ghana (NAB)

Spiritan University College started as an Institute of philosophy to give the first stage of priestly and missionary formation uniquely to candidates of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit. It was opened on 17th December, 1990 and the foundation stone was laid by Very Rev. Fr. Pierre Haas, C.S.Sp.  and blessed by the Most Rev. Peter Kwasi Sarpong.

In 1997, an initial two year programme was broadened to cover three years leading to the award of a Diploma in Philosophy and Religious Studies. In 2002, the proprietors decided to raise the academic standard to enable graduates to meet the intellectual challenges of the society of the day. Added to this, the proprietors saw the need to bring the benefits of Catholic and Spiritan education to the youth of Ghana and Africa by opening the doors of the College to the wider public.

The College was accredited by the National Accreditation Board on 25th September, 2005.
On 15th May, 2008, the College signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to offer Bachelors degree in Philosophy and Social Sciences. On June 20th 2008, the University college status was inaugurated.

The College held its first Matriculation ceremony with KNUST on Thursday, November 2008.

The College started a Faculty of Business Studies with the following disciplines in September 2011: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with the following options: Accounting, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, Banking and Finance and B.Sc. in Economics and Finance, B.Sc. in Finance and Management . These programmes were accredited by the National Accreditation Board on 1st April 2011.

The first batch of students of the College graduated on 19th June 2010 with degrees and Diplomas from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).  The first batch of students in the the Sociology and Economics programme graduated on Wednesday 19th June 2013.

The College was affiliated to the University of Cape Coast in April 2016 to offer B. Ed. Social Studies. The programme took off in September 2016. We also run an Master of Arts programme in Theology. This is affiliated to Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

The vision of Spiritan University College is grounded in the motto, “Spiritus Veritatis” (Spirit of Truth). It has the vision to become an academia of excellence in research and teaching in truth and wisdom in African Philosophy, human and social sciences in Ghana and West Africa and to disseminate productive information for national development and also for the progress of the Church.

Spiritan University College is a Catholic University founded by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, the Spiritans. Spiritan University College is devoted to helping students to seek practical wisdom and truth and develop a harmonious relationship between faith and reason. This is done through comprehensive quality liberal, professional, Catholic and Spiritan education in a serene and conducive environment.


Like any Catholic institution, the College has a student centred ethos of education and lays much emphasis on participatory and discovering methods that enable students to develop well integrated personalities.


Originally devoted to the training of religious, missionaries and social workers for the Church and the society at large, the College has opened its doors to the general public and trains civil leaders, business entrepreneurs to be good and productive citizens, and bring moral and social values and skills to bear on their social, business and political responsibilities.

As a Spiritan institution, we are committed to the poor and the marginalized in our society.

Beginning with education in the humanities, the College has the vision to venture into the training of personnel in business, education computer science and law.

The Upcoming 4th INCOPOMA

As an academic community, we are excited to announce the upcoming International conference on the theme: “The Church and the Global Eradication of Ignorance and Poverty in Africa.” This conference is set to be a pivotal moment for scholars, experts, and practitioners alike to convene and explore solutions to one of the most pressing issues of our time.

Africa, a continent with over 1.3 billion people, is plagued by ignorance and poverty. While progress has been made in recent years, it is still home to some of the world’s most impoverished communities. The role of the church in this fight cannot be overemphasized, as it has always been at the forefront of humanitarian efforts in Africa.

The conference seeks to provide a platform for stakeholders to discuss innovative ways in which the church can play an active role in the eradication of poverty and ignorance on the continent. Attendees will explore the latest research, exchange ideas, and propose solutions that can lead to sustainable development in Africa.

The importance of this conference cannot be overstated. Poverty and ignorance remain some of the most significant challenges facing humanity today. This conference is a crucial step towards addressing these challenges, as it provides a unique opportunity to bring together experts, scholars, and practitioners to work towards a common goal.

we encourage anyone with an interest in this critical issue to attend this conference. Your participation will contribute significantly to the search for sustainable solutions to the global eradication of poverty and ignorance in Africa. Let us join hands and work towards building a better future for all Africans.

The Venerable Fr. Francis Libermann. April 14, 1802 – February 2, 1852. The Second Founder of the Spiritans

Venerable Francis Libermann had a most remarkable journey of faith. He was born into an orthodox Jewish family in the Alsace region of France in 1802, and given the name Jacob.

Jacob Libermann’s father was a rabbi, and Jacob was preparing to become a rabbi himself when his studies led him to the New Testament and to Christianity.

He was baptized Francis Mary Paul, in 1826, at Christmas.

Soon he was studying for the Catholic priesthood, but violent attacks of epilepsy put his vocation on hold.
It was fifteen years before he was finally ordained, in 1841.

Last monday, the 10th January 2022, the university college officially commenced lectures for the second Semester for the 2021 Academic year. So far, lectures have been running smoothly with a very good turn out.
