Dominion University College gets New chancellor, Baafuor Dr. Ossei Hyeaman Brantuo Vl, ( Otumfuor Asantehene’s Manwerehene).
Prof Felix Nikoi Hammond, chairman of Dominion Governing Council, said let’s face it, for most of you here today, a few months back, Dominion University College won’t naturally cross your mind when considering institutions of higher learning in Ghana. We are young. Dominion opened it’s doors to its first cohort of 61 students in 2012.
The institution has mostly stayed in the shadows of the media circus and outside the virtual public for a number of reasons. As a result, the Dominion brand together with the great things we do here is hardly known publicly.
Our students constantly score our lecturers very high, seeing them as very knowledgeable in their fields and helpful, Who encourage them to study hard and constantly strive for development.
The likes of professor Nicholas Nsowah Nuamah, the president, are internationally renowned thought leaders in their fields. Ag. Dean Rev. Daniel Eshun’s research publication on polygamy is generating significant and thoughtful public debate on the subject.
Many of our lecturers have research publications in high impact international journals. Yet Dominion has remained outside the spotlight.

That is set to change now. In September 2018, Dominion launched radical and aggressive reforms to improve its national standing and relevance, to enrich the learning experiences of our students as well as to expand our range of academic, professional and extracurricular programs.
The reforms are also directed at expanding opportunities for hands-on experiential learning to make our students succeed in the ever-changing world of work.
We are now creating the Dominion identity, a unique set of performance and attitudinal traits that will mark our graduate out from the crowd in the world of work.
The new Chancellor of Dominion University College, Baafuor Dr Ossei Hyeaman Brantuo Vl on the occasion of his investiture said, thanks Otumfuo Osei Tutu ll, king of the Asante Kingdom for acquiescing to release him for this position in spite of the many demands and engagements of his Kingdom that has bestowed on him and for his blessings over him when this request was moored to him, especially coming from the backdrop that Otumfuo himself is the chancellor of an illustrious university (KNUST).

But after his endorsement and his assurance, I saw it divine and a blessing not only to him but to Dominion University College at large.
It is an opportunity for him to pluck another leaf from the book of the Otumfuo and to draw much inspiration from him as I take this opportunity.
He, therefore, thanks the landlord of Dominion University College, the Eminent Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams for ceding such an enviable but challenging position to him in order to concentrate on his core mandate, Missionary work.
As a staunch, I understand the magnitude and the exigencies of the work of the ministry and so I respect your decision.
