13th March, 2020 a historic day at CCU!
Coal City University Enugu got a new VC in the person of a young Professor Adam Icha-Ituma.
Afam Icha-Ituma is a Professor of Human Resource Management and Dean Faculty of Management and Social Sciences, Alex Ekwueme Federal University, Ndufu-Alike (AE-FUNAI), Ebonyi State. Professor Icha-Ituma has a solid record of achievement in senior leadership roles in higher education and has played a significant part in shaping the strategy, operations and culture of AE-FUNAI since the inception of the University.
He brings a compelling blend of national leadership and global perspective to the post having served AE-FUNAI as pioneer Director of Academic Planning, pioneer Director of Centre for Entrepreneurship and Employability, pioneer Director Centre for Internationalization,
