In 2003, church education officials met in Tanzania, first to recommend establishing a postgraduate institution to meet the needs of students seeking Adventist higher education in Africa. They later decided to offer master's degrees through three existing church-run campuses across the continent: Babcock University in Nigeria, Solusi University in Zimbabwe and the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton in Kenya.
Construction of the Adventist University of Africa's headquarters began in 2005 and classes started the following year. [photo: courtesy AUA]
