Abstract: The study was part of ongoing opinion survey, objectivised to ascertain the assumption that despite the apparent relegation and protestations against it by 20th century secularisation, disciplined character could be a core educational outcome in Christian tertiary institutions in contemporary Ghana. It was within the bigger domain of searching for a Christian academy for 21st century Africa, characterised with holistic and transformative rather than just the utilitarian education system of the secularised 20th century. Opinion collection targeted 575 people, belonging to three groups of stakeholders: students and alumni (as potential employees), and industrial employers. All the respondents (371) generally agreed to the proposal of promoting Christian values for development of disciplined character in university students. However, employers were more emphatic than both students and alumni, suggesting some hesitation of students in agreeing to the proposal. We recommended that while Christian universities could promote disciplined character formation of students, the programmes and pedagogy needs to be what works.
