Wa UDS campus renamed after Dombo

The government has renamed the University of Development Studies (UDS) Wa campus, S.D. Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies following the passage of the University for Business and Integrated Development Studies Bill 2018.

The Minority MPs who were against the name changed refused to vote allowing the Majority to have their way after a majority vote in parliament on Thursday, 1 August 2019.

The passage of the Bill will transform the existing UDS Wa campus into a fully-fledged university.

The Wa and Navorongo campuses of UDS were recently made autonomous through an Executive Instrument.

The campus was separated from UDS in 2002 as the Faculty of Integrated Development Studies to give easy access to people in the Upper West Region to tertiary education.
