Changing Africa: Learning Here. Staying Here. Leading Here.

 

Africa University students are destined to change the world. Learn a few facts about the students and the university:

  • Approximately 4,000 students have graduated from Africa University since it opened in the spring of 1994. The first graduation included 18 graduates in Agriculture and Natural Resources, and nine students in Theology
  • Recognizing that by the turn of this century, fully one-fifth of the world’s population will live in Africa, the University believes its purpose is to help African Christians train leaders for their churches and societies.
  • Today Africa University has 1,500 students. These students choose one of six undergraduate or five postgraduate programs. The Management & Administration and Humanities & Social Sciences programs have the most students. Nearly 100 students are currently enrolled in the Health Sciences area. Africa University has 135 faculty members and, additionally, multiple permanent and visiting lecturers.
  • Students come from 29 countries across the continent of Africa. The official language at Africa University is English, which is also the official language of Zimbabwe. On campus, you find similarities to the American university experience: dormitories, staff housing, a student health center, a student union, dining hall and educational buildings. Prominently placed on campus are the Jokomo/Yamada Library and the Kwang Lim Chapel. You would also find a building where students are enrolled in one of the university’s newest programs of study, the Institute of Peace, Leadership and Governance program.
