Vision and Mission Statements
Our Vision is to be a leading African institution of higher learning that fully recognizes and actively professes the human value and dignity of all society members, including people with disabilities, and whereby everyone is able to learn and live in harmony with God, fellow human beings and all creation
Our Mission is to provide High Quality University Level Education that produces graduates who can integrate the Needs, Rights and Potentials of People with different abilities into a holistic perspective of life and creation in various fields of expertise, building upon traditional knowledge simultaneously as we open creative ways for new and constructive innovations.
We mention “people with disabilities” in our Vision and Mission statements because:
- Most Regional and District plans do not include people with disabilities.
- Anyone can acquire disability during the course of life - temporarily or permanently.
- In our view, one criterion by which a nation’s civilization can be measured is how it treats citizens who have disabilities.
- For more than a century, the NED has been putting emphasis on supporting people who are in the lowest stratum of the social pyramid, e.g. people with leprosy, the disabled, orphans, people with mental health problems and other vulnerable groups.
Therefore, our university college intends to:
- run programs which focus directly on producing graduates who will be equipped intellectually, practically and emotionally to serve people who have disabilities;
- mainstream issues about the needs, rights and abilities of people who have physical, sensory, intellectual and/or behavioral barriers into all programmes;
- create a conducive study environment for students who have disabilities
