Somali Universities earn EDU Accreditation


EDU is pleased to announce the new Accreditation status of two leading Somali institutions of higher learning.

 

 

 
         

The decision to accredit the two schools came as welcoming news to H.E. Irving Levance. As a childhood refugee himself, the Secretary-General is a passionate and outspoken supporter of Somalia's future and an diligent advocate for their transition to sustained peace.

The Secretary-General of EDU believes the power of quality education to be the key ingredient to continuous stability. It is a view shared by renowned scholar and current President of Somalia, H.E Professor Hassan Sheikh Mohamud.

Also this week, the Federal Government of Somalia is reported to be planning resumed talks with the authorities in Somaliland, a breakaway region on the country’s northwest province. They are scheduled to take place in Turkey on January 15th.

Almost a year ago this week, Mogadishu University became the first school in Somalia to be Accredited by this Intergovernmental organization.

EDU now accredits schools in Africa, Asia, Pacific, Europe and South America, including the Earth Charter Center for Education for Sustainable Development situated at the UN mandated University for Peace (UPEACE) Campus in Costa Rica.
