The appointment of Professor Pupulampu, who was the Head of Department of Organisation and Human Resource Management (HRM) at the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) and Chair of the UGBS EMBA programme, was effective June 1, 2017.
The new VC came after the substantive VC, Professor Kwesi Yankah, resigned earlier this year, after being appointed Minister of State in-charge of Tertiary Education by President Akufo-Addo.
Prior to his appointment, a Search Committee, spearheaded by the new Chief Justice (CJ), Justice Sophia Akuffo, was instituted by the University Council, which, upon thorough scrutiny, deemed Professor Pupulampu eligible and the most distinguished candidate to steer the affairs of the university.
Contained in a statement signed by Reverend Tetteh Djangmah, CU’s Head of Public Relations, and copied to Ghananewsaid.com, Professor Pupulampu is expected to oversee the administration of Ghana’s biggest private university.
The CU was founded by the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) in 1988, with a present population of over 8,000 students pursing 20 under-graduate and seven graduate programmes.
The CU has campuses at Miotso in the Ningo-Prampram District, Mataheko in the Accra Metropolis, and Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.
Professor Bill Buenar Pupulampu is an academician and a practising Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society and International Association of Applied Psychology.
With over 20 years of experience in business education, organisational consulting, university teaching and research, the new VC’s research interests are in the areas of Employee Motivation, Leadership, Work Values, Organisational Culture and CSR.
A product of the Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC), Legon, Professor Pupulampu holds a PhD in Organisational Behaviour from the University of East London, 1993; MSc Occupational and Organisational Psychology from the Polytechnic of East London, 1990, and Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Ghana, Legon.
He is also a graduate of the DAAD Deans’ Course for Africa programme on Higher Education Management.
