This study was undertaken to examine the university teachers perception of including students with Visual Impairment (VI) in the public universities of Ghana. The sample consisted of 110 teachers from the University of Cape Coast (UCC), the University of Education, Winneba, (UEW), and the University of Ghana (UG). Data were collected through questionnaire developed by the researchers (Chronbach s coefficient Alpha of .76). One research question and two hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The data were analyzed employing descriptive statistics, t-tests and ANOVA. The results showed that teachers perception toward inclusion of students with VI were favorable. Gender differences were noted showing that female teachers perceptions were more positive than the males. Teachers in the three universities also differed in their perception toward the inclusion of students with VI.
