Welcome

You are welcome to the official website of the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences (GAAS). The site has been updated to reflect the current vision of the Academy. The vision is to be Ghana’s foremost merit-based learned society, committed to national development and the advancement of the world (GAAS Strategic Plan, 2020-2025). The core values to drive this vision are relevance, integrity, professionalism, and excellence.

Established in 1959, the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences has been involved in the promotion of the study, extension and dissemination of knowledge in the arts and sciences. In its first decade of existence, the Academy went through changes to reach, in 1968, the form it now has. This website will be dedicated to sharing information on the work and activities of the Academy. As we unveil the first phase of the new website, we intend to update the site regularly. You will find information about the history, structure, Fellows of the Academy, publications, current and future events and other pertinent news.

The Ghana Academy has local and international partners. We expect to share important information from these partners from time to time.
