ABOUT ANUC

All Nations University College (ANUC) was established in 1996 by the All Nations Full Gospel Church (ANFGC), Toronto, Canada through the All Nations International Development Agency (ANIDA). The Progenitor of the vision, Dr. Samuel Donkor challenged the African Diaspora in North America to support the development of Africa by investing in Human Resource Development through quality higher education. The mission was to develop a new breed of leaders for the continent with a holistic education that emphasizes academic excellence, Christian values, discipline and ethical values in a Christ-centered environment. The government of Ghana readily embraced the idea in 1988, when Dr. Donkor sought permission for the All Nations University. But it was not until 1996 when the master plan was presented to the National Accreditation Board (NAB). Upon the advice of NAB, the University was incorporated in April 1996 and subsequently received the authority to establish the All Nations University in May 1996. After years of preparations, the University opened its doors to 37 pioneering students on November 4, 2002, for the Business and Computer Science undergraduate programs. Today ANUC has 12 accredited programs and over 8500 students. With staff from 17+ countries and students from Ghana and 35+ countries around the world, ANUC has been home to students from many countries such as Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Congo Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, Niger, Nigeria, Romania, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Togo and more.
