Higher education institutions particularly have been criticized for underperforming and lower quality of education. Subsequently, several regulatory bodies have been established in regulating and accrediting higher education institutions. Amongst them is the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission established in 1993 to fortify the quality of higher education in Ghana through its affiliation and mentorship initiative. Nevertheless, criticisms have been levied on its mentorship process and its tendency to create isomorphism. This chapter, using an integrative theoretical literature review methodology, developed and proposed a robust five-stage affiliate mentorship process model, namely initiation, modeling, coaching, scaffolding redefinition, and recommending strategies for enhancing its implementation as well as proposing areas for policy direction and theoretical exploration.
