PIASS BECOMES PUR
With great pleasure, the Board of Directors and the entire community inform the public that the Protestant Institute of Arts and Social Sciences (PIASS) has been authorized by the Government of Rwanda to run as a University under the new name “Protestant University of Rwanda” - PUR in acronym.
This follows the decision taken by the PIASS General Assembly on August 26, 2016 stipulating the wish to transform the institution into a University, which was immediately addressed to the Government of Rwanda. The idea was supported by the conclusion of the Report of International Audit conducted in September 2016 that considers PIASS as an example of a Higher Leaning Institution in Rwanda that could compete regionally and internationally on Peace studies, Community Development and Education for reconciliation and development.
This great success is dedicated to all our partners and friends as without their accompaniment and prayers, we wouldn’t have attained such a triumph.
To the Almighty God be all the glory
