Patrick Awuah '89 on Leadership in Africa

Education is fundamental to the transformation of leadership in Africa, says Patrick Awuah '89, president and founder of Ashesi University College in Ghana. Awuah modeled the school, the country's first to adopt the liberal arts method, on Swarthmore. Awuah spoke about his goals for Ashesi, which graduated its first class in 2006, at the 2007 TED Conference.
