THE PUR NEWSLETTER ISSUE NO 7 JANUARY-JULY 2017
Dear Friends, Students, Lecturers, Researchers and PUR Partners worldwide!
After a short eclipse, PIASS Newsletter emerges with a new identity, as the information organ of an Institution that transmuted from Protestant Institute to Protestant University [PUR]. The move was reached at following the decision of the founding members’ General Assembly. The new legal status granting the Legal Personality Nᵒ102/ RGB/RBO/2017 was issued by the Rwanda Governance Board [RGB] on 29/03/2017 and published in the Official Gazette of Rwanda, Official Gazette no19 of 08/05/2017, p. 93. We thank God for this move that marked huge progress that was accomplished by our institution in the last six years.
We reemerge with abundant news to share with our stakeholders!. Through a user friendly style, our Newsletter offers practical information you want to know about academic year activities and our three Faculties: Education, Development Studies and Theology of our private, independent and accredited Higher Learning Institution owned by Protestants Churches in Rwanda. PUR intends to promote a conducive environment for studying social sciences. You may also learn about recent events and have a glance at our two campuses, in Huye and Karongi Districts. We do hope the Newsletter will mirror the dynamics and growth of our academic institution, in terms of research, new domains, innovation and academic partnerships as well as our services to the community through, consultancies, workshops and short courses. I feel proud of this vibrant institution, its enthusiasm and its commitment to quality education, solutions and ethical standards. Please feel free to make any suggestions and comments that will help us to keep abreast the developments of all people.
Prof. Elisee MUSEMAKWELI, Vice Chancellor, PUR
