AKU Arusha Campus AKDN
With a major expansion underway, the Aga Khan University is planting institutional and intellectual seeds to produce the leadership that East Africa will require in the years ahead. Dr Farouk Topan discusses some of the ways in which the university hopes to contribute to the East African Community.
Fifteen years ago, the Aga Khan University crossed the Indian Ocean. At the invitation of the governments of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, AKU set up an Advanced Nursing Programme in each country — the university’s first academic initiative in Africa.
