The purpose of this study is to unveil the influence of employee engagement on the performance of colleges and universities in Ghana. Using a quantitative survey, data was collected from 400 staff and both SPSS and AMOS were used to run the analysis. It was found that the three main components of engagement (vigor, dedication and absorption) have significant positive impact on colleges and university performance in Ghana. Hence, all the three hypotheses were accepted. On future research areas, current study, which successfully evaluated work vigor, dedication, and absorption, advances that future researchers may instill a further assessment of the mediating role of workers’ engagement particularly for workload, community, and social support, perceived fairness, and values. It was concluded that staff engagement is a good predictor of colleges and university performance in Ghanaian context.
