To be a model Christian University in Africa
To provide quality holistic Christian education at tertiary level to all who meet the University entry requirements.
Rusangu University believes and operates on the Seventh-day Adventist world view that the world and all human beings are a product of God’s creative act, further that humans were created in His image, but that through sin this (image) was lost, resulting in physical, mental and spiritual capacities being lessened.
The University therefore, emphasizes the harmonious development of the physical, mental and spiritual faculties of the individual.
In addition, Rusangu University believes that all human beings are equal regardless of gender, ethnicity, creed, or any other challenge, be it physical or otherwise. Further, we believe in educating the student for generous service to the church and society and train him/her to be a thinker not a mare reflector of other people’s thoughts.
