VICE CHANCELLOR’S MESSAGE
“Education for National Development, Peace and Humanity through Multidimensional Advancement”
Heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to all young achievers who are part and parcel of Millennium University, Blantyre, Malawi; a prominent institution of higher education! It is indeed a privilege and pleasing moment for me to greet all of you in my capacity as the Vice-Chancellor of the University. I believe youth have tremendous energy to shape not only their lives but the future of the whole world through social and national development. The recent crisis of pandemic has shown the creative and innovative aspects of doing things and youth played an significant role in overcoming the tough situations.
The primary concern of the University is to strengthen the students and faculty members through personality development, skill development and capacity building programmes with a spirit of community service and social welfare. Education must inculcate the life, communication, problems solving, decision making and the most important entrepreneurial skills among learners. In the era of globalization, it is possible only when learning takes place beyond four walls of the classroom. The students must be provided exposure to learn as well as explore their innate talent at national and global level for which the collaboration among the Universities, industries, and other higher education institution at global level is necessary.
The vision of the University is to ensure that it remains pioneer at every level and recognized universally in realizing strong possibilities for a multidimensional development (Cognitive, Conative and Psychomotor) of students and fulfill its responsibilities in qualitative education and research. The University will soon introduce the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) programmes in various disciplines with their specialization to include research and practical working and thereby serving two fold purposes, one is to give impetus to expertise among students and other to give practical solutions regarding existing social, financial, political, economical, healthcare and other contemporary problems. The concept of ‘Education through spiritual and moral development for Peace and Humanity’ will cater the need of all stakeholders and thereby bring a collective positive change in the entire scenario for better, safer and healthier learning. Recent pandemic has made us to rethink on equipping the youth with digital skills and to strengthen them so that they could face the challenges and unfavorable circumstances with courage. We are also progressing towards establishing chairs in the name of the existing as well as historical great thinkers, innovators, entrepreneurs, social reformers to propagate their vibrant ideas and thoughts among new generation.
You are welcome to be a part of the University which is striving towards strengthening youth with national as well as global competence and excellence through education.
