Bloomfield College was treated to a visit from a distinguished former employee on August 15, when Muhammadou M.O. Kah, a professor of information technology and communications at The University of the Gambia, returned to campus for a meeting with President Richard Levao and Director of Student Affairs Dr. Patrick Lamy.

“We were delighted that Muhammadou came back to campus to visit with us,” Levao said of the influential visitor. “His accomplishments in Gambia and the impact he has had in his home country at various levels of the education system are truly phenomenal. It was great to have him back here at Bloomfield College, where his influence is still being felt long after his departure.”

Recently appointed as the Vice Chairman of the National Committee on Science, Technology and Innovation by the President of The Gambia, Kah is also the Third Vice Chancellor of the University of the Gambia, becoming the first Gambian to be appointed to the post. Throughout his decorated career, Kah has served as Founding Dean of the School of Information, Technology and Communications and Interim Dean for the School of Business and Entrepreneurship at the American University of Nigeria, among countless other positions.

During his one-year term at Bloomfield, Kah served as Founding Director of Institutional Research and Strategic Planning as well as an adjust instructor, teaching courses in statistics, psychology, industrial psychology and group dynamics.

“I am honored to be associated with this great college and her unique and important mission and vision,” Kah said of his return to campus. “As intimated, I had a great time serving the college, and we were one great family with a common purpose. I treasured my short tenure at Bloomfield and continue to believe in her mission and vision.”
