The chapter examines the problem of equity in higher education in Ghana with the view to determining progress since independence. Various studies on the provision of higher education in the country dating back to the colonial era have and continue to raise concerns about equity (Manu et al, 2007; Bening, 2005; Antwi, 1992). Indeed, if there has been one common trend in the many review or reform reports that have defined and shaped educational reforms at all levels in the country, prior to and since independence, it would be the question of equity. While many of these reports have focused on equity at the pre-higher education level, they make revelations that suggest an extension of such imbalances to the higher education level (GoG, 2004; PCRERG, 2002; Antwi, 1992). The chapter focuses on conceptual and contextual analyses of role, nature and accessibility issues in the evolution of higher education in Ghana for the ways that the question of equity has been perceived and addressed.
