After spending time volunteering to teach children as a student #atAshesi, alumna Edwina '15 discovered she wanted to keep working with them. A year after graduating, she has co-founded a childhood development center, which uses a Montessori model for giving children a base for success. Her hopes?

Help us welcome our new Provost, Dr. Suzanne Buchele, who first visited Ashesi in 2006 as the university's first Fullbright Scholar. When she left Ghana for the U.S in 2008, her impact on campus had been remarkable, and she stayed connected with Ashesi until 2014, when she returned to take a full time role as Associate Provost.

She holds a BA Summa Cum Laude, in Mathematical Sciences, an M.A in Mathematics, and an M.Sc and Ph.D. in Computer Sciences. As Provost, she now leads all academic affairs at Ashesi.
