The Interim Governing Council of the University of Media Arts and Communication (UniMAC) has appointed Professor Kwamena Kwansah-Aidoo as the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the university.
Until his appointment on May 4, 2023, he was the acting VC of the University.
JoyNews sources say although he turns 60 in February 2024, this new appointment will see Prof Kwansah-Aidoo in office until 31st July 2024.
This, the council believes will allow the VC set the new University on a solid course before the expiration of his long service.

In December 2022, Prof. Kwamena Kwansah-Aidoo was appointed as the Vice-Chancellor effective December 1, 2020.
His appointment came after the 6th Regular Meeting of the Council of the university held on November 30, 2022.
