About Us

about_bannerx1We 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

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 …

What we Do

  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:
