UPSA is determined to act consistently in accordance with its principles and espoused values.


Respect in the University’s community means respect for one’s self, others and the University’s values.


Service in the UPSA community means recognizing social needs and applying our strengths and knowledge to address those needs.


Developing a system that focuses on the head, heart and hands within an intensive teaching, learning and research environment is the stream flowing through UPSA’s Code of Conduct. We consider the norms stated in the Draft Policy for tertiary education in Ghana as our minimum target to be responsive to and operate within the norms and ethical guidelines of all relevant professional bodies. Continual Improvement is the Hallmark of UPSA’s Vision and Mission.
