1Sahil Badruddin = ""As the President has said, we
plan to open a new campus in Arusha in just four years. It will be home for our
new Faculty of Arts and Sciences plus two Professional Graduate Schools and a
variety of other training and research facilities. We are also planning a new
campus in Dar es Salaam for our Institute for Educational Development. Other
AKU initiatives that will serve the entire region include new undergraduate
medical and nursing programs in Kenya as well as our Graduate School of Media
and Communications, opening this year in Nairobi. Seven other Graduate Schools
will follow, designed to advance healthy Civil Society in specific African
contexts. They will include Schools of Leadership and Management; Hospitality,
Leisure and Tourism; Architecture and Human Settlements; Government, Civil
Society and Public Policy; Economic Growth and Development; Law; and Education.
It is our belief that developing graduate schools is one of the quickest ways
in which universities can impact the improvement in the quality of life of
people in developing countries."-Aga Khan IV"
