The key initial academic programmes of the University have been developed through a subtle needs assessment by talking to leaders in the education sector, health sector, industry and economic sub-sectors, church leaders and students coming out of existing conventional, as well as Open and Distance Learning (ODL). This approach from the outset demonstrates that TU will not impose imported theoretical programmes, but develop relevant programmes which are pertinent and responsive to the needs of our nation, communities, continent and the world at large. In time, we expect the University to develop and enlarge to meet the needs of future generations, but still remain relevant at all times. It is our mission to deliver high quality, insightful and innovative educational programmes in order to become the premier university in our nation, and the region. Our primary goal is therefore, stated in our motto, to educate for excellence, innovation and a quest for more knowledge through research.
TU aims at equipping learners with exceptional academic and professional knowledge that is unequivocally essential in overcoming challenges in one’s personal and public life. The University focuses further at producing graduates that are equipped with good and dynamic leadership qualities that are indispensable in meeting national and global challenges, especially those which are social, economic, scientific and technological in nature. It is in this belief that the education programmes offered at the University, notwithstanding learners’ religious inclination reflect Zambia’s needs and cultural and traditional identity as people belonging to the global world.
We will not compromise our demand for scholastic excellence from all academic staff as well as students, as guided by our Christian principles and heritage, which emphasise that intellectual and spiritual pursuits go hand in hand, as essential ingredients for the sustainable growth and development of the whole person. It is our aspiration that Trinity University graduates will reflect that heritage.
I therefore invite all our visitors to this site to give us a feedback, especially on our academic programmes; all your suggestions are most welcome.
