MIssion, Vision & Values

The University is striving to provide quality tertiary education through which we can transform and place this great nation into straight pathway of development and prosperity. We experienced a slowdown in most of our programmes immediately after the independence of South Sudan as most of the University staff members remained in Sudan. However, the resilience of our existing staff members, their zeal and determination made it possible to surmount most of the challenges we faced within a relatively short time. Today, the University is recovering its strength and it is much stronger than when it was two years ago.
