Strengthening Academic Ties: Valley View University Hosts Delegation from New York University

On Tuesday, March 19, 2024, Valley View University (VVU), Ghana's Premier Private University, had the honour of welcoming a distinguished twenty-four-man delegation from New York University (NYU), USA.

The visit, aimed at exploring collaborative opportunities between the two esteemed institutions, marked a significant step towards international academic partnership and exchange.


Led by Teboho Moja, a Clinical Professor of Higher Education at NYU, the delegation's visit underscored the global interest in the unique academic, cultural, and developmental strides being made by Valley View University. Professor Emmanuel Bismark Amponsah, the Rector of the Techiman Campus, serving as the Acting Vice Chancellor, led the Valley View University team in hosting the esteemed guests.


The brief engagement was filled with activities that showcased the vibrancy and academic excellence of Valley View University. A musical band composed of talented students from the University’s Music Department provided a warm welcome to the guests with a selection of local tunes that set the stage for a day of fruitful discussions and cultural exchange.


Highlighting the event was a presentation by Mr. Albert K. Imbrah, the Registrar of Valley View University, who delved into the history, programme offerings, institutional objectives, and systems that define Valley View University. His presentation painted a vivid picture of Valley View University's commitment to providing quality Christian education and fostering a holistic development environment for its students.


The delegation also had the opportunity to interact with other key officers of Valley View University, including the Dean of Spiritual Life and Development, the Chief Finance Officer, the Vice Dean of the School of Education, and the Dean of the Faculty of Science. These interactions provided valuable insights into the academic and administrative synergies that could be harnessed between the two universities.



The delegation had further interactions with students of the School of Education to appreciate the perspective of the Ghanaian student of higher learning. The team among other things was interested in knowing the challenges associated with tertiary education in Ghana especially among private universities. The host students on their part, highlighted the advantages and uniqueness that go with receiving value-based Christian education at Valley View University in spite of the challenges associated with private tertiary education in the country.
