About The University of The Gambia
The University of The Gambia was established by an Act of the National Assembly of the Gambia in March 1999. The enactment, which was a bold step to fulfill a long-standing desire of the people of The Gambia and to respond to several years of advocacy both within and outside the country for a university, ended years of indecision on the university question.
The University of The Gambia will seek to attain its Vision and Mission by:
- Promoting equitable and sustainable socio-economic development of communities through relevant, high-quality gender-sensitive teaching, research and outreach programmes.
- Providing higher education to all persons, suitably qualified and capable of benefiting from it.
- Positioning itself as a national asset committed to the promotion of life-long learning.
- Developing its information and communication technologies, infrastructure as a driving force for the education of more people more rapidly and for the improvement of efficiency and academic quality to attain the goals of poverty alleviation and national development
