We empower our graduates with necessary knowledge and skills for career pathways of their choices with a focus on our core values and responsibilities for quality education that helps the country create skilled human resources and become a strong knowledge-based economy regionally and globally.
We prepare our students for careers such as primary and secondary education teachers, school psychologists, and educational leaders.
