Valley View University to Introduce New Programmes

The Valley View University is processing eleven programs for accreditation in addition to its 28 programs to offer more opportunities in developing Ghana’s human resource.

The Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Daniel Bediako announced this at the 22nd Congregation ceremony of the Adventist institution, at its main campus at Oyibi, in the Greater Accra Region.

The programs are a Bachelor of Science in Mental Health Nursing, Bachelor of Science -Procurement and Supply Chain Management, Bachelor of Science- Environmental and Waste Management.

Others are Master’s program in Business Administration in Accounting and Master’s Program in Education Leadership and Administration.

A total of 2391 graduands, comprising 190 post graduate students and 2,201 undergraduates were awarded with degrees and diplomas.

The graduands, from 11 African countries, made up of more than 67 per cent males.

Prof. Bediako said the institution offered value-based Christian education that fostered the balanced development of all students.

He said each student by the end of his or her training process would have benefited socially, intellectually, physically and spiritually.

Prof Bediako said the university operates three campuses; Oyibi, Techiman and Kumasi, with a total enrollment of 9614 students. Sandwiched students constitute 50 per cent enrollment.

He said over the year under review, the various Departments and Institutions all achieved various successes in their efforts.

In the Chaplaincy Department, Prof. Bediako said, their outreach programs had resulted in the baptism of 568 souls and this was a 38 per cent increase over the previous year’s figure of 411 souls.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Joseph Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo, who was the special Guest of Honour, advised the graduates to lead responsible lives wherever they found themselves.

He said graduation ceremonies often “marks the end of a long journey but it is the beginning of another journey – “life’s journey” – and urged the students to acquaint themselves creditably in all their endeavours.

Nii Afotey Agbo urged lecturers and the academic authorities to continue to work hard for their students to improve their lot to ensure their total development.

“The one who graduates and stops learning will soon find himself behind on the path to success,” he said. “Don’t forget your alma mater in all your successes”.

The event, which saw the presentation of awards to distinguished students, was attended by various dignitaries from the Seventh Day Adventist fraternity, traditional rulers, and the public.
