|Abstract: ||This paper examined how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the work of university
administrative and professional staff in Ghana. The pandemic has affected higher education institutions
(HEIs) throughout the world in the areas of teaching, learning, research and the provision of
administrative support services. In this paper, we used survey data and in-depth interview transcripts
to describe how a selection of administrative and professional staff from eight public universities in
Ghana are affected. The survey targeted members of the Ghana Association of University
Administrators (GAUA) which is made up of non-teaching Senior Members of the public universities.
We found that the work of university administrators in Ghana was mainly office based with little or no
virtual working schedules or platforms. We, therefore, predict a drastic shift from office-based working
to blended-working schedules among university administrative and professional staff in the postCOVID-19 era.|
