A revision of the mandate of the University of Cape Coast led to the re-organisation of the management of the University including the implementation of the Collegiate System. The College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences (CANS) is one of the five Colleges that were instituted at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) on Friday, 1st August, 2014. CANS comprises three Schools which are the School of Agriculture (SoA), the School of Biological Sciences (SoBs) and the School of Physical Sciences (SoPs). The College sees the need to forge ahead strategically to support its three Schools to achieve their objectives and to further help the University achieve its vision and mission.

The College recognizes that many of today’s research questions cut across traditional subject boundaries. Examples include energy, environment and biodiversity conservation. Thus, the College’s all-embracing philosophy is that, strong core disciplines need to be combined with mechanisms to promote interdisciplinary research through thematic research clusters. The College therefore builds upon its current disciplinary strengths to encourage intellectual cross-fertilization that leads to interdisciplinary research. The highest priority proposed in the next five years is to sustain and enhance faculty excellence with special emphasis on promoting and recognizing excellence and leadership in research, scholarship and creativity. These would lead to the enrolment, education, internship and graduation of the most deserving, promising and diverse student body possible.

We endeavor to provide all students with education that is inventive, distinctive and of premier quality and to inspire in them the zeal for life-long learning. Alongside this, the College strengthens public engagement of the university education, research with local, national and international communities.
