Heads of Valley View University

Initially, casually christened “Bekwai Seminary,” the Adventist Missionary College (renamed Adventist Ministerial College in 1981) was hosted by the Bekwai Secondary School from September 1979 to September 1983, when it collapsed to give way to the Adventist Missionary College that started at Adenta near Accra (1983-1989). In January 1989, the institution was moved to Oyibi and renamed Valley View College. When the National Accreditation Board granted an institutional accreditation to the College in 1997 (becoming the first private tertiary institution to be accredited by the National Accreditation Board), the name Valley View University was adopted. In 2006, a Presidential Charter placed the institution on a full university status, again becoming the first private tertiary educational institution to be chartered in Ghana. Since its establishment, there have been five acting presidents and six substantive presidents (three of them being “vice chancellors,” a title reserved for the head of a chartered university in Ghana). These are as follows:
