Ghana Sustainable Change (GSC) is an interdisciplinary studio class and service-learning study abroad opportunity. We work in tandem with the Offinso North District Assembly (ONDA) and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to address expressed critical needs of the Offinso North District within the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
GSC is based in the department of City and Regional Planning in the Knowlton School. In addition, the success of the program relies on participation from students across the Ohio State University. The projects that are developed, implemented, and continue in the program have a strong planning focus, yet necessitate multiple disciplines in order to be sustainable and effective.
The mission of Ghana Sustainable Change is to focus on locally-expressed critical needs, support interdisciplinary service-learning and build on a strong planning and development foundation for a sustainable and resilient future.
