University background:

The idea to establish and operate a University by the Anglican Church of Tanzania started at the Synod Meeting held in 1999.

The Archbishop Donald Mtetemela emphasized the importance of establishing the Anglican Church University to provide higher education in the different aspects of education in Tanzania that will respond to the country’s needs of eradicating extreme poverty, hunger and disease and thus provide improved life expectancy to its people.


To assume responsibility for providing and maintaining high quality education and training in the theological, social, scientific and technological disciplines.The Anglican Church of Tanzania aims to increase access to University education in Tanzania, by giving more young people the opportunity of higher education.
