NDOLA, Thursday, 1st April 2021- As Mushimba exceptionally impressive with Northrise University.
Higher Education Minister Dr. Brian Mushimba has called upon all universities to oblige and register their institutions with the Higher Education Authority and Zambia Qualifications Authority because sub-standards will be not allowed.
Minister Mushimba was speaking when he toured Northrise University in Ndola today.
Honourable Mushimba said partnership and collaboration are critical with public and private universities to exchange notes and cross-pollinate ideas that will allow well-structured higher education training as is the case with Northrise University.
Dr. Mushimba was exceptionally impressed with the university infrastructure and programs offered that are well speaking to the desires and needs of youths and all.
Minister Mushimba said the level of such education investment is in line with the 7th National Development Plan and the Patriotic Front manifesto in the provision of quality tertiary training services.
Honorable Mushimba called upon other private universities to take a leaf and provide a quality education that will match the age.
” As Government, we take a lead and encourage players to do things right in this space of tertiary education”. Dr. Mushimba said.
And Northrise University President Dr. Moffat Zimba was grateful that the Government was concerned to ensure the private universities are recognized and supported with policy guidance, Dr. Zimba said the university’s desire is a service to make a difference for the community and the country at large through various programmes offered. He, however, bemoaned the university suffering a setback on lecturers who leave for greener pastures after huge education support.
The university president said the current crop of lectures is effectively augmenting learning activities to close the gap by a deliberate approach of grooming.
