About Adventist University of Afrcia
Adventist University of Afrcia Overview
Adventist University of Africa (AUA) is dedicated to its mission of developing and shaping leaders for Africa and beyond. Responsible and ethical leadership is one of the most critical factors for the transformation of Africa.
We therefore aspire to be the gateway for Africas leadership development, fostering the highest standards of postgraduate education and advancing knowledge and professional skills in a wholistic context.
In achieving this, we pride ourselves in offering value-based education. An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person—spiritual, physical, intellectual, and social-emotional—a process that spans a lifetime.
Our challenge for the future is to build on this strong base to establish ourselves firmly among the worlds leading universities.
We welcome students, staff members and other stakeholders to join us in building human resource for the entire Africa.

Adventist University of Afrcia History
In 1994, the General Conference Department of Education commissioned a
study to determine the best way to provide postgraduate education for
all of Africa. Traveling abroad, spending several years in Europe or
America, was not a viable option for most African pastors, church
administrators, and prospective professors.
To solve their problem, a few African Adventist institutions
negotiated affiliation agreements with Andrews University and Loma Linda
University, but even these arrangements proved unsatisfactory because
the cost was high and contextualization could not be achieved.
In 2003, a consultation requested by the three African divisions,
with representation from the divisions, from Adventist colleges and
universities in Africa, and from the General Conference, took place in
Arusha, Tanzania. The consultation ended with the recommendation to
establish a new institution that would offer only postgraduate
programmes, in comparatively short sessions each year (to enable
potential students to attend without having to resign from their work
and move their families). Classes would be taught at Extension Centres
on the campuses of selected, existing Adventist universities/colleges
The divisions chose Solusi University in the Southern Africa-Indian
Ocean Division, Babcock University in the West-Central Africa Division,
and the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton in the Eastern-Central
Africa Division. Since then, an Interim Management Committee has been
working on the development of the curriculum, on obtaining a charter
from the Commission of Higher Education of Kenya, and arranging for the
beginning of classes in 2006.
