Valley View University is an institution founded and originally operated by the West African Union Mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is currently operated as an institution of the West and Central African Division (WAD) of Seventh-day Adventist, which has its headquarters in Abidjan. The Ghana Union Conference serves as the local manager of the university.
In 1979 the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Ghana established the Adventist Missionary College at Bekwai-Ashanti to provide two-year post secondary education as part of the Church’s contribution to Christian education in West Africa. The College was later relocated at Adentan, Accra, then to its present site at Oyibi and was renamed Valley View College. The campus site, consisting of more than 285 acres of land, is situated on a low lying area with an excellent view of the Akwapim hills.
In 1995 Valley View College (VVC) was upgraded to offer Bachelor’s degrees in Religion and Theology and also affiliated with Griggs University in Maryland, USA. Following a series of evaluations conducted by the National Accreditation Board, VVC in 1997 became the first accredited private degree granting institution in Ghana and was renamed Valley View University(VVU).
VVU forms part of a worldwide system of 98 tertiary institutions operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The University admits students with the requisite qualifications regardless of their religion, race, tribe, or nationality. At present the University serves students from 15 African countries and is truly proud of its international identity.
