We believe in the equality and dignity of all humans, regardless of race, tribe, gender, creed, colour or handicap, and in a life dedicated in service to God and to fellow human beings.
Our purpose as Solusi University derives from the heritage of the Seventh-day Adventist Church: to enable students to dedicate their lives to selfless service for God and man; to guide in the formation of characters marked by integrity, loyalty to God and country, self-discipline, responsibility and tolerance; to develop students’ abilities in critical thinking; to bring forth acceptable levels of refinement and aesthetic taste; to encourage respect for the dignity of labour and to proffer guidance for the community, church and society.
Our Story begins in 1894, as one of the first of the hundreds of Seventh-day Adventist mission stations arrive in Eastern Africa. Solusi Mission is founded in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, named after Chief Soluswe, near whose home the Mission was founded. During the first decade of its existence, Solusi Mission shared in the suffering brought to the region by war and a resulting famine. Despite these hardships, the development of the Mission continued and a regional training programme was established for the development of church workers. READ ON …
We believe in development of the individual’s spiritual, mental, physical and social faculties, on the premise that man is created in God’s image, and can overcome sin to be restored to a full relationship with Him through the redemptive work of His Son Jesus Christ, to become effective in service to God and Community. Our work is guided by this holistic approach as reflected in the following objectives:
To assist students in gaining a growing knowledge of God as Creator and Sustainer of life. To provide an environment conducive to the development of a Christian character. To develop an appreciation for and an understanding of the Bible as the written word of God and infallible rule of faith and practice for the Christian. To help students develop a personal life of faith, prayer, worship and service to their fellow men. To encourage students to recognise and acknowledge God’s ownership of human resources and their roles as stewards. To challenge students to develop a personal sense of mission for giving the gospel message to the entire world in preparation for the soon return of Jesus.
To help students to develop analytical thinking skills. To encourage students to make decisions based on moral and ethical values as well as accumulated facts. To provide learning experiences which are based on the use of material and methods of instruction which reflect Seventh-day Adventist values. To provide opportunities for students to develop aesthetic values and talents. To encourage students to develop intellectual curiosity. To provide an educational programme which challenges students to pursue educational excellence within the parameters of his interests, needs, and abilities.
To help students develop habits of healthful living in such areas as diet, rest, temperance and regular exercise. To provide opportunities for students to develop an appreciation for the value and dignity of labour by incorporating useful and productive labour as an intrinsic part of the total learning experience. To develop vocational skills that enable students to be resourceful in their environment.
