Students, across the world, will commemorate, on Monday 17th November, the International Students? Day. The Day was declared by the International Students Council in 1941. It was on that Day in 1939 that the Nazi occupation forces in the then Czechoslovakia had closed down all High Institutions of Learning and executed or imprisoned students and professors as a reprisal against Czechoslovak anti-fascist student demonstrations.

Since then students have been marking the Day in different forms to register their abhorrence for dictatorship, racism and human rights violation among others. This year the All Africa Students Union (AASU) is organizing a one day forum in collaboration with the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) at the University of Professional Studies in Accra (UPSA)- Ghana to mark the Day under the theme: ?Quality Assurance in High Education: the Role of Stakeholders.?

The programme of the forum will start at 2pm under the chairmanship of H.E. Lakhal Benkelai, the Ambassador of Algeria to Ghana.
