ST AUGUSTINE UNIVERSITY OF TANZANIA

Introduction

When the Catholic Bishops of Tanzania decided to extend the Church’s service to the provision of higher Education they envisioned a training that would impart academic and professional skills, as well as inculcate values of civic and social learning, such as acquisition of national identity, cultural norms, political growth and responsible citizenship. Thus, the church’s vision is holistic development of a person and respect for human dignity.
