Theresa Scott Kwakye

Resident Director, University of Ghana

Theresa Scott Kwakye is a native of Washington, D.C. who moved to Ghana in December 1985 with her husband and their 5-month-old baby. She has remained in Ghana for the last 34 years where she has raised 4 children. Theresa was employed in various roles before coming to the University of Ghana in 1991 and beginning her work in international education. Over the years she has worked with the University of California Study Abroad Program (UCEAP) and University Study Abroad Consortium (USAC). After receiving a master’s degree in African studies from the University of Ghana, she became the Resident Director for ISEP Study Abroad in Legon. She is passionate about the benefits of international education as she has seen its effects on the many students who have passed through the Ghana programs over the years - many of whom keep in touch and come back to Ghana for work or leisure from time to time.
