We greatly want to contribute to create awareness on the ancient philosophy of education which explains that education kills the disease of ignorance superstition fear and poverty and we also seek to be a recognized leader among higher educational institutions that excel in effective teaching, active learning, scholarly research, and responsible engagement with the local community as well as with the national and global communities in which we live.
Kesmonds International University KIU was founded as a non-denominational institution with the goal of advancing the professional and personal ambitions of its students by providing a demanding, yet supportive educational experience. KIU equally focuses on the theory of education by challenging its students to exceed their highest ambitions, fosters the development of values and deepens a desire to help shape the world. We intend to nurture graduates who, inspired by their morals and high integrity, are highly motivated individuals, with the ambition and ability to create their own jobs or to achieve, succeed, and make a lasting impact in their careers and communities.
