MountCrest University College (MCU) was established in August 2008 by Mr and Mrs Kwaku Ansa-Asare as a fitting memorial for their son, Kwame Ansa-Asare, who in his short span of life on earth shared whatever he had with all and sundry. Kwame is the inspiration for its motto, â€śUt Vitam Habeantâ€ť which, translated into English, means â€śThat They May Have Lifeâ€ť, reflecting motivation, vision and commitment.
The vision of MCU is â€śto become a world-class teaching and research university, educating for life and addressing the challenges facing contemporary societyâ€ť.
Its mission is â€śto train and prepare a new generation of graduates in body, mind and spirit, for the transformation of societyâ€ť.
