President Uhuru Kenyatta on December 2, 2020 formally granted a charter to the Presbyterian University of East Africa transiting the academic institution into a fully-fledged university.
Speaking during the charter award ceremony held at State House, Nairobi, the President challenged the new university to offer courses that give solutions to current challenges facing humanity.
“I wish to state that this University has all it takes to be a continental and global leader in tertiary education, research & development, innovation, and provision of solutions to the pressing problems of the day,” the President said.
The Presbyterian University of East Africa aims at producing holistically trained graduates for the service of God and humanity. We embrace the values of academic excellence, responsible freedom of thoughts, selfless service, discipline, truth, integrity, honesty, justice, tolerance, transparency and fair play.
We don’t just give students an education and experiences that set them up for success in a career. We help them succeed in their career—to discover a field they’re passionate about and dare to lead it.
To be a world class Presbyterian University of choice providing holistic and transformational Christian Education.
To stay at the frontier of knowledge through innovative research, community service, and training professionals to serve God and transform society.
In order to realize the Vision and Mission, The Presbyterian University of East Africa (PUEA) shall endeavor to live up to the Christian ideals, guided by the philosophy of the Presbyterian Church, namely, “Let all things be done decently and in order.” (1 Corinthians 14:40 NKJV)
