The Faculty of Education takes great pride in the quality of education that is provided to its students. The university staff is excited about helping to prepare our students for the world in which they live. Much of the success that our students have achieved today is the result of the collaborative efforts of our stakeholders. It is the product of several weeks of hard work between board members, teachers, administrators, staff, and community leaders.
This collaboration has not only helped in envisioning the future of the faculty but also in the development of the roadmap that will take us there. By clearly articulating our values, vision, mission, focus areas, and objectives, we can continue in the direction of excellence.
I welcome all prospective students to consider this faculty as their choice. In the next few years, we will introduce greater change and diversity to the faculty that will impact students’ learning and make the Faculty of Education at Benadir University one of the top choices for a degree in education.
Due to the lack of educational opportunities in some rural areas of our country, we have made the decision to establish an online e-learning program in 2021–2022, with the goal of spreading knowledge across the entire nation and producing qualified teachers who can share their expertise with our vulnerable community. As a faculty, we were successful in maintaining the virtual learning program.
