                                                    PREFACE
The Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities is the accrediting
body established by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide coordination, supervision, and quality control to
its educational system. The Association is commonly known as the Adventist Accrediting Association and
operates under the acronym of “AAA.” The Association serves the thirteen divisions of the world church and is
assisted in its work by the divisions’ directors of education and the educational commissions and committees of
each division.

Accreditation is a self-regulatory mechanism of the education community and plays a significant role in fostering
confidence in the educational enterprise of the church. Accreditation and the self-study process serve to maintain
minimum standards, enhance institutional effectiveness, and provide inter-institutional recognition.

Accreditation is concerned principally with the improvement of educational quality in institutions operated by the
Seventh-day Adventist Church around the world. Accreditation of an institution by the AAA signifies that the
institution has a purpose appropriate to service the educational needs of those in its constituency and has the
resources, programs, and services sufficient to accomplish the institution’s goals.

The accrediting standards used by the Adventist Accrediting Association make up the Criteria for Accreditation.
These criteria are subject to periodic evaluation and provide consistent guidelines for the evaluation of educational
institutions.

A key component of the process of accreditation is the self-study. Each institution applying for initial or continuing
accreditation is required to conduct a self-study of its philosophy, mission, purpose, programs, and services. At the
culmination of the self-study the association conducts an evaluation visit with a team of professional peer
evaluators to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the institution and to evaluate the institutions effectiveness in
reaching its stated goals and in complying with the criteria.

The visiting team will supply the AAA board a written report of their findings and make a recommendation for a
term of accreditation to be voted by the Accrediting Association board.

Most institutions included in this directory have full accreditation and the year in which this regular accreditation
was first granted is indicated at the bottom of each institutional entry. However, institutions that are presently in
candidacy are also included, with a notation indicating that status under the name of the relevant institutions.

When AAA grants candidacy it is recognizing that an institution is in a position to offer accredited programs and
that the programs approved are, as far as can be ascertained, likely to be the quality of other similar AAA
accredited programs. While receiving institutions always retain the right to decide whether or not they will accept
the credits granted by an institution in candidacy, AAA recommends that such credits be accepted for transfer. An
institution is normally granted candidacy for a two-year period prior to being considered for regular accreditation.

Prospective students and other interested parties are encouraged to contact directly the institutions listed in this
directory for up-to-date information regarding programs, degrees, and costs.

Location: Surat, Gujarat, India. Surat is a commercial city, specializing in textile manufacture and diamond cutting,
located some 120 miles northeast of Bombay.

History: Adventist College of Professional Studies was established in 1998 by the Southern Asia Division to meet a
specific need for recognized tertiary program in business administration, accounting, and computer science. The
College had its origin in 1948 when a small one-teacher institution was established in the church vestry to care for
the children of the local Adventist hospital workers and few church members in the city of Surat. Early in the 60s,
the school board and faculty decided to utilize Christian education as an avenue of outreach, and so opened its
doors to the non-Adventist community. Soon the quality and character-centered philosophy of Adventist education
began to have its impact throughout the city. To care for the growing number of students, the school launched a
major building program, including a three-floor secondary school, a three-floor elementary school, and an attractive
conference. As of 1997, the K-12 student population amounted to 3600, with 145 highly qualified teachers.
 With such an outstanding performance at K-12 level, the school, its board, and the Division felt that the time has
come for it to move to tertiary education. Meanwhile, the local university and the All India Council for Technical
Education at the country’s capital Delhi offered to provide recognition for professional courses, the Southern Asia
Division Committee approved the starting of the college in July 1998. A modern college building, with adequate
administrative office, teaching, an d library, and computer facility was completed by September 1998.

Educational Program: Adventist College of Professional Studies offers Bachelor of Business Administration and
Master of Business Administration in accounting, business administration, and computer science.

Location: The campus of Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies (AIIAS) is located about 45.5 km
south of Manila in the barrio of Lalaan I, Silang, Cavite.

History: AIIAS had its beginning in a realization that leaders in the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church in Asia
needed and desired graduate preparation in such areas as teaching, management, health education, evangelism, and
theology. To be most effective, this study needed to be offered in quality, affordable programs infused with Bible
principles and truths.

Beginning in 1957, several such graduate programs, primarily in the area of religion, were offered on the campus of
Philippine Union College, now the Adventist University of the Philippins (AUP). These programs were organized
into a Theological Seminary, which became a Far Eastern Division institution in 1978. The success of the Seminary
led to the expansion of graduate programs into other areas, such as public health. Thus, on May 5, 1987, when
AIIAS came into being by Presidential Decree 2021, it was composed of two schools: the Theological Seminary
(ThS) and the School of Graduate Studies (SGS). These schools were joined by the Distance Education Division
(DED), offering courses leading to graduate degrees at Distance Learning Centers (DLCs) located strategically
throughout Asia.

In 1991, AIIAS was moved to the present campus near Silang, Cavite. On October 6, 1996, by action taken by the
Annual Council of the SDA Church, AIIAS became an institution of the General Conference of Seventh-day
Adventists. Concurrently, its mission expanded to incorporate a more global dimension.

Educational Programs: In addition to the central campus, selected degrees at the masters level are offered in
Distance Learning Centers up to nine weeks a year in Bangladesh, East Indonesia, West Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia,
Central Philippines, South Philippines, Taiwan, and Thailand. Faculty for the Distance Learning Centers are drawn
from the AIIAS, the colleges of the Asia Pacific Divisions, and other world divisions. When possible, qualified
individuals for the division and union offices are also used for teaching. Courses in the Distance Learning Centers
are taught in three-week modules. Each course carries three semester hours of academic credit.

Location: Adventist University at Lukanga is located about 40 kilometers south of Butembo in the green hill
country of North Kivu, Republic of Congo.

History: In October 1969, Lukanga Institute first opened its door as “College Adventist de Kivu.” In the early 70's a
pastoral training center was added. In October 1994, the pastoral training school was replaced by a University
program in theological studies through Griggs University.
          After operating in its Mundende, Rwanda campus for ten years, the Adventist University of Central Africa
had to cease operations in April 1994 due to the civil war in the country. In view of this event, the Africa-Indian
Ocean Division (AID), on June 6, 1995, decided to develop institutions of higher learning in four French-speaking
countries. Additional factors that led to the decision to establish more than one francophone University campus
were (1) the high cost of transportation in Africa, (2) the sociopolitical and economic instability that prevents
potential students to travel in some areas, and (3) the Church’s desire to serve as many qualified applicants as
possible. One of the campuses was the Adventist University at Lukanga, Democratic Republic of Congo.

 Educational Program: Adventist University at Lukanga began as part of the university system with four campuses
located in four different countries – Cameroon, Republic of Congo, Madagascar, and Rwanda. Currently the
university is staffed with its own administrative and professional personnel. The university has a rector who is
responsible to the senate operating carefully to meet the needs and requirements of its own national government and
local constituency. The executive Board is responsible for the University Senate (chaired by the division president)
which is the overall governing body of the university.

Educational Program: Adventist University began as part of a university system of higher education with university
campuses located in four different countries - Cameroon, Republic of Congo, Madagascar and Rwanda. Each
university campus is staffed with its own administrative and professional personnel. However, provision has been
made for a limited flow of specialists among these institutions so as to enrich the academic lives of students.
Currently each university campus has a rector who is responsible to the senate (board) through which it is
empowered to act independently and is sensitive to the unique needs and requirements of its own national
government and local constituency. The Executive Board is responsible for the University Senate (chaired by the
division president) which is the overall governing body of the university.

Location: Adventist University Zurcher is located in Sambaina, at an altitude of 1400 meters above sea level in
central Madagascar, 130 kilometers south of Antananarivo, the Capital City. The paved highway to the South of
Madagascar runs along a part of the 470 acres campus.

History: After the complete destruction of the Adventist University of Central Africa during the 1994 civil war and
genocide in Rwanda, the French-speaking Adventist population in Africa was left without any higher educational
institution. Division leadership authorized establishment of four universities, with the hope that should any future
emergency arise such as the 1994 civil war, there would be other institutions to serve Francophone young people.
Thus work began on Adventist University Zurcher in 1995 on a 192-hectare plot on the highlands of Madagascar,
near the resort town of Antsirabe. The campus is some 3 hours by road from the country capital Antananarivo,
which also has the only airport linking the island to the rest of Africa and the world.

         The university opened its doors in 1996 with 35 theology students temporarily housed at the Union
headquarters. A pioneering spirit prevailed; the first buildings began to appear in 1997, and the first administration
and teaching began on the campus.

Educational Program: The curriculum is patterned after the American model, with general education, a major, and
the possibility of a minor. A semester is based on 17 weeks and the Winter Session has four weeks to accommodate
working pastors and church employees who use their vacation time for upgrading in the theology program.

Location: Adventist University of the Philippines is a Level III accredited, coeducational institution. The university
is located 50 kilometers south of Manila, in the Barangay of Putting Kahoy, Silang, Cavite.

History: The school was opened June 12, 1917 as the Philippine Seventh-day Adventist Academy. In 1925 the Far
Eastern Division authorized the school to offer two years of college work and the school was renamed Philippine
Junior College. In 1932 the institution was upgraded to senior college standing and was given the name Philippine
Union College. The first degrees were conferred in 1935. On June 10, 1957 government recognition and General
Conference authorization were given to the graduate curriculum leading to a Master’s degree in education. In
January 1964 the Master's degree in religion was authorized; thus Philippine Union College was the first SDA
institution outside the United States to offer a graduate degree. In 1973 the school purchased 164 hectare (410
acres) property in Silang, Cavite. The college completed its move from the old campus in 1984. The government
through the Commission on Higher Education granted a University status on August 1, 1996.

Educational Program: The university offers a wide variety of undergraduate degrees and a limited number of
graduate degrees through the 6 colleges on campus. Undergraduate courses include the arts and sciences,
technology, business, computer, education, nursing, medical technology, nutrition, and theology. Graduate
offerings include master programs in biology, business administration, education, nursing, and public health. The
Doctor of Public Health with a major in Preventive Health Care is the first doctoral program granted permission by
the CHED.

Location: Andrews University (AU) is located on the banks of the St. Joseph River and adjacent to Old U. S.
Highway 31, approximately 75 miles northeast of Chicago in Southwest Michigan.

History: The history of Andrews University began in 1874 when the Seventh-day Adventist denomination founded
Battle Creek College in Battle Creek, Michigan. In 1901, the school was moved to Berrien Springs, Michigan,
along the banks of the St. Joseph River and was named Emmanuel Missionary College. In 1934, the Seventh-day
Adventist denomination established an Advanced Bible School on the Pacific Union College campus in Angwin,
California. Years later, that program was moved to Washington, DC, and named the Seventh-day Adventist
Theological Seminary. The seminary trustees added other graduate programs in 1957, thus establishing a School of
Graduate Studies. The combined institution became Potomac University. To provide more space for that growing
institution, Potomac University was moved in 1959 to the campus of Emmanuel Missionary College. The next year,
Emmanual Missionary College, the Theological Seminary, and the School of Graduate Studies united under one
charter as Andrews University with an integrated board of trustees, administration, and faculty. The name honors
John Nevins Andrews (1829-83), pioneer Adventist theologian, editor, administrator, and the denomination’s first
official missionary to serve outside North America. The undergraduate division of Andrews University was
organized into two colleges, the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Technology, in 1974. The School
of Business emerged in 1980, and the Department of Education became the School of Education in 1983. The
present structure of the School of Graduate Studies was adopted in 1987. The Architecture Department became a
division in 1993.

Educational Program: The university offers education from the elementary school through the doctoral level. The
undergraduate school offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degree options with various concentrations
and emphases. Associate degrees and pre-professional programs are also available. Numerous graduate degree
programs on both the masters and doctoral levels are available.

Location: Antillean Adventist University is located on a 280-acre site on the outskirts of the city of Mayaguez,
Puerto Rico. The campus provides an expansive view of the surrounding mountainous terrain with its lush tropical
vegetation, while enjoying serene seclusion from the hustle of the city two kilometers west of the campus.

History: The University is the successor of Antillian College which operated in Cuba from 1955 to 1961. Prior to
the authorization of the transfer, Colegio Adventista de Puerto Rico, a 12-grade academy for the island, served the
educational needs through the secondary level. Following the transfer of Antillian College from Santa Clara, Cuba,
then academy , adopted the name of its tertiary institution Antillian College. In 1964 it was authorized by the
General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists to offer senior college work in theology, education, and to function
as a liberal-arts institution. In 1971 a two-year elementary education program was accredited by the Puerto Rico
Council of Higher Education. The following year the newly affiliated two-year nursing program with Bella Vista
Hospital also received official approval. In 1978, the college experienced its banner year when it received
accreditation from the Puerto Rico Department of Education, the Board of Regents, General Conference of
Seventh-day Adventists, and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In 1989, the University
changed its name to Universidad Adventista de las Antillas.

Educational Program: The University offers several programs leading to Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science
degrees. It also offers a variety of two-year programs. Loma Linda University offers a Master in in Physical

Location: Atlantic Union College (AUC) is situated in South Lancaster, 40 miles west of Boston and 15 miles
north of Worcester, in the Nashoba Valley, and is set in rolling, green hills. It is the oldest Seventh-day Adventist
college on its original site. The town is a typical New England village with large white colonial houses with black
or green shutters standing along shaded streets. The neo-classical architecture of a number of the 25-plus college-
owned buildings blends in well with that of the town. The four-season climate of central Massachusetts is
delightful, especially during the fall color display and in the winter, when it is dry, crisp, and cold--just right for
many of the sports for which New England is famous. The campus features a distinctive blend of modern and
traditional architecture. Representative of the modern is the G. Eric Jones Library, which houses over 135,000
volumes and more than 850 periodicals as well as special collections in the Oscar Schmidt Heritage Room and
Ottilie Stafford Poetry collection. The traditional buildings on campus include High Victorian (Founders Hall),
Georgian Revival (Thayer Conservatory of Music), and Beaux Arts Revival ("the White House"). These older and
historically significant buildings give the campus a distinctive richness and emphasize the college's Ivy League
location.

History: The college was founded as a secondary school in 1882 and was referred to as "that New England School"
for the first two years, and then named South Lancaster Academy. Later, two years of college work were added to
the curriculum, and in 1918 the name of the institution was changed from South Lancaster Academy to Lancaster
Junior College. In 1922 a college ministerial course of four years was opened and the present name, Atlantic Union
College, was chosen.

Educational Program: AUC prides itself in the close relationships it nurtures between teachers and students. What
happens in the classroom is central to student growth and the college carefully recruits professors who have both
sound credentials and a proven ability to communicate the excitement of their field. The college grants the degrees
of Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music, and Masters of Education, and Bachelor of Science.
Pre-professional courses as well as two-year terminal courses are also available in certain technological and
vocational fields. Of special note is the Honors Core Program for high achievers, the Summer Advantage program
for advanced pre-college young people and the Adult Degree and Continuing Education programs for those who
want to complete their degrees without leaving their occupations.

Location: Avondale College is built on the Avondale Estate, a country property of approximately 325 hectares on
the coastal plain about 120 km north of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia. The Wattagan Range, about eight
kilometers to the west, is covered with wet sclerophyll eucalyptus forest, with pockets of subtropical rainforest, and
is excellent for hiking, camping, and rock climbing. A few kilometers to the east is located the magnificent
saltwater Lake Macquarie with its entrance from the Pacific Ocean. The rainfall is about 50 inches per year, which
is distributed uniformly throughout the year. Mid-day summer temperatures are usually near 27C, although
temperatures exceeding 40C are common. In winter, frost may occur overnight, particularly during the months of
July and August.

History: In 1892, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia recognized the need for an educational center to
provide trained personnel for expanding the work of the church in Australia and the South Pacific. To meet this
need, the School for Christian Workers was founded in Melbourne in August of that year. In 1895, the institution
was transferred to Cooranbong where it became known as the Avondale School for Christian Workers. It was
renamed the Australasian Missionary College in 1911, and Avondale College in 1963. Under its new name it has
continued to foster the ideals that prompted its founders.

Educational Program: Avondale College offers bachelor degrees in Arts, Business, Science, Education
(elementary and secondary), Nursing and Theology. Postgraduate studies are offered to masters level in Education,
Nursing, Theology, Ministry and Leadership & Management. Vocational Studies are available in Aviation,
Business and Outdoor Recreation. In addition, the College offers a Foundation Studies program and a program of
English language studies for speakers of languages other than English.

Location: The Belgrade Theological Seminary is located in the city of Belgrade, in a very pleasant and peaceful
part called Banovo Brdo. It is close to public transportation and with park area “Kosutnjak” within walking
distance.

History: The Belgrade Theological Seminary dates back to 1931 when it was first established as the Theological
School of Belgrade. A year later it moved to Zagreb, where it operated ten years until 1942, when it had to stop due
to the Second World War. In 1955 it was established again in Rakovica, Belgrade, where it operated until 1974,
when it had to move because of some urban changes in that part of the city. Then it moved to Marusevec, Croatia.
The Belgrade Theological had its present day beginnings in 1992, when the South-East European Union
Conference purchased a four-story building, constructed and used as an educational facility by another church.

Educational Program: The seminary offers a four-year program in theology for the preparation of Seventh-day
Adventist ministers and Bible workers.

Location: Bogenhofen Seminary belongs to the community of St. Peter am Hart and enjoys a rural setting near the
Inn River. The cultural centers of Munich, Salzburg, and Passau are within easy driving distance from the school.
The school is located about 38 miles (60 km) north of Salzburg.

History: Bogenhofen is an old mansion (small castle) in the province of Upper Austria. The castle reached the
peak of its fame in the 15th century. After passing through the hands of various nobles of Bavaria and Austria, the
castle was ultimately acquired by the Seventh-day Adventists in 1949. Since that time, it has been a seminary
offering a complete four-year ministerial training program with courses at the junior/senior college level. In 1957,
the German language program was established, which is affiliated with the Goethe-Institute in Munich since 1959.
In 1962, Bogenhofen became part of the North American based Adventist Colleges Abroad network. In 1984, the
"Gymnasium" (senior high school) was given official recognition by the Austrian educational authorities.

Educational Program: The institution operates an Oberstufenrealgymnasium (senior high school), which leads to
the "Matura" (entrance examination to university studies). College programs include the language and culture
program "German as a Foreign Language," a one-year program and a six-week summer course with beginning,
intermediate, and advanced levels; a theological seminary; a two years layman training and a one-year Bible
certificate program.

History: Brazil Adventist University (BAU Sao Paulo) was founded 23 miles from the city of Sao Paulo in 1915
under the leadership of missionaries John Boehm and John Liepke to prepare Brazilian youth for gospel ministry in
Brazil. Prior names for the school are: Colegio Missionario da Conferencia Uniao Brasileira dos Adventistas do
Setimo Dia (Brazil Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Missionary College), Seminario Adventista
(Adventist Seminary), Colegio Adventista (Adventist College), Colegio Adventista Brasileiro (Brazilian Adventist
College), Instituto Adventista de Ensino (Adventist Institute of Teaching – Brazil College), and now Centro
Universitario Adventista De Sao Paulo (UNASP) [Brazil Adventist University (BAU) – Sao Paulo, Engenheiro
Coelho and Hortolandia].
          The first official program was elementary education in 1937. During the 1940s, various secondary level
courses were made official. The Theology program was offered from the beginning and was elevated to the level of
“superior” in 1955 when it began to offer four years of study after the conclusion of the secondary level. The
School of Nursing began in 1969 and the School of Education in 1983. In the same year, by means of a decree from
the Sao Paulo Municipal Mayor’s Office, 80% of the original area belonging to the institution was expropriated to
build the densely-populated low cost housing that now surrounds the school. With the compensation from the
expropriation, a new rural area of 800 hectares (1,976 acres) was purchased in Artur Nogueira, which today is
Engenheiro Coelho. It is 160 km. from the city of Sao Paulo.
          The institution operated as two campuses from 1985, with Sao Paulo offering programs in the Exact and
Natural Sciences and Health Sciences and Engenheiro Coelho (EC) offering programs in the Humanities, Social
Sciences, Technology, and Theology. By Brazilian presidential Decree, effective 9/10/99, the Official Programs of
the Institution were recognized as part of the Sao Paulo Adventist University Center. In 2002, the Sao Paulo
Adventist Academy in Hortolandia (founded in 1949) was incorporated as the third campus, offering a program in
Physical Education.

Educational Program: The University offers License and Post Graduate degrees and Summer Programs Business
and Technologies degrees in the areas of theology, educations, and modern languages: Furthermore, the university
offers Distance Learning Programs in Religion and Education.

History: The history of Adventist pastoral education in Bulgaria starts in 1948, when a theological course for the
training of pastors was organized in the little town of Svoge. Only four years later (1952) the school was closed by
the communist regime. The church was forced to train its pastors “underground” until 1989, date of the end of the
regime. The training of pastors continued through two main means, namely sending students to Adventist
seminaries in Europe, and sporadically through seminars conducted by pastors and visiting professors. Both
experiences had good results, but they felt insufficient for the needs of the field.

         The project of establishing a theological school in Bulgaria started in the year 2000. In 2004 the Union
decided to transform the school project into a three-year theological junior college, with the additional assignment
of up-grading the training of pastors without regular pastoral education. The new project started October 3, 2005,
with 12 day students and 42 pastors in the up-grading program. In 2006 the College moved to the new building of
the Bulgarian Union headquarters.

         The first official visit to Bulgarian Theological College by the International Board of Education took place
on December 5-6, 2005. The institution was given pre-candidacy status. The next visit of the Adventist Accrediting
Association took place on September 10-21, 2007 for candidacy status until 2009.

Educational Program: The Bulgarian Theological Seminary will be associated to the EUD Education Department
through the Senior Colleges of Collonges and Friedensau. The programs will have a compatible Seventh-day
Adventist curriculum of three years (according to the Bologna agreement), covering the full number of credits
needed for the BA-Licence of a 3 years diploma in the EUD. Some of the courses may be taught together for
students and pastors. The Seminary in collaboration with the Bulgarian Union will establish a plan with priorities
for the courses to be taught to the pastors. Dates at regular periods in the church calendar should be fixed for
modules and intensives. The Seminary will be adopting a triannual model of functioning registering cohorts of
selected students only every three years. 15 students will enroll during the first year (2005-2006).

Location: Canadian University College (CaUC) is situated in Lacombe, Alberta. Beautiful lakes, nestled among
rolling hills, are visible in every direction. Lacombe is about midway between Calgary and Edmonton. Provincial
Highway Number 2, connecting these two cities, passes within one kilometer of the campus.

History: In 1906, a group of men attended an institute for Christian laymen in Leduc, Alberta. These people
formed the nucleus from which Canadian University College developed. The first school was opened in Leduc in
1907: it bore the name ALBERTA ADVENTIST ACADEMY. In 1909, the present location at Lacombe became
the school site. In 1919, when the first two years of college were added, the name was changed to CANADIAN
JUNIOR COLLEGE. This name was retained until 1942 when the senior theological course was added and the
name CANADIAN UNION COLLEGE was adopted. An affiliation agreement, recognizing first-year college
courses, was signed with the University of Alberta in 1971; this affiliation was later extended to include second-
year courses in liberal arts and science. In 1991, Canadian Union College began granting its own degree Bachelor
of Arts (Three-Year) degrees in several disciplines; subsequently, the University College was authorized to expand
its offerings (see “Certificates/Diplomas/Degrees” below). In 1997, the name of the institution was changed to
CANADIAN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, in order to better communicate its status as a degree-granting institution.
Canadian University College offers its students a beautiful country campus, relatively modest tuition rates, and
many opportunities to grow academically, spiritually, physically, and socially.

Educational programs: Three-Year and Four-Year Bachelor Degree programs in a wide range of disciplines, one
(Two-Year) diploma, and seven (One-Year) certificates are offered on the campus of the University College.

more central place, in Chillán, offering missionary training for students planning to be colporteurs, teachers, and
pastors in three-year college level programs, In 1965, the General Conference authorized its upgrading to a senior
college. Later on, when the Chilean Government allowed the creation of new accredited private institutions, the
school was organized in 1982 as "Instituto Profesional Adventista," the official equivalent to a college with three-
and four-year programs in educational and theological areas. Afterwards, in 1990, the Universidad Adventista de
Chile started its academic programs with full range capabilities for careers and degrees.

E-mail: flaizcollege@yahoo.com

Location: Andhra Pradesh, India

History: Flaiz institution has 80 years of experience in running Adventist Christian educational programs in this
area. Over the years of its educational service, thousands of people went out of the portals of this institution and
settled down in many countries around the globe, occupying comfortable positions both within and outside the
Church.
           Dr. T. R. Flaiz, a missionary from USA was asked to start missionary work in Narsapur in the year 1921.
Thus the Flaiz institutional work began in March 1921 with the construction of a residential bungalow for the
missionary at Narsapur. Behind the second bungalow was built a thatched shed with the size of 25/50 feet, where
the first school began from July 18, 1921, onwards. Over the past 80 years of its existence, 25 school principals
served the institution and the present being the 26th person.
           The institution is a co-educational school operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. For some time
the school was known as Telugu Mission School-later was changed to Narsapur Boarding School, and later was
named after the founder Dr. T. R. Flaiz. In course of time high school was added and the Narsapur Boarding School
became the full-fledged high school in 1978. Until then the school conducted the Southern Asia Division
examinations DHSC and DCEC. In 1978 it sought the affiliation from the Council for the Indian School Certificate
Examinations (New Delhi) and thus students were sent for ICSE Examinations. Later in 1986 it got its affiliation
from the same organization to start Plus Two Programs i.e, Higher Secondary Classes.
            After 79 years of educational ministry in Narsapur, the school administration has submitted a proposal to
the Southern Asia Division Executive Committee in January 2000 requesting them to send an evaluation Committee
to study the possibilities of up-grading this institution to a Senior College (undergraduate program). In February
2000 an evaluation team headed by Dr. M. C. John, Vice President, Education Board of Southern Asia Division of
Seventh-day Adventists, evaluated our institution and recommended to the Division Executive Committee where in
it was voted to approve the school to apply with the government of Andhra Pradesh for permission to establish a
degree college and thus in August 2000 the Flaiz Memorial Adventist College was established with the affiliation of
Andhra University.

Location: The College is situated on Viti Levu (the main island of the Fiji group), on Kings Road, 50 kilometers
northeast of the capital city, Suva.

History: The pioneer missionary and educator, Pastor John E. Fulton recognized the need for an Adventist school
in Fiji. The first training school was established in 1904 at Buresala on the island of Ovalau; and during the next 25
years several other regional training centers were also established. In 1939, due to rising standards of education,
government pressure for better qualified teachers, and the inconvenience of separate sites, a decision was made to
consolidate the education work. The new College (at its present site) opened in 1941 and was named in honor of
Pastor Fulton. With the establishment of the Central Pacific Union Mission of Seventh-day Adventists in 1949,
Fulton College became the union training institution, a capacity it has filled for over 50 years.

Educational Program: In addition to offering certificate and diploma programs, the college also operates a primary
and secondary school.

it difficult to finish a college degree during traditional weekday hours or fixed schedules because of professional or
family obligations. Courses are offered by distance education, by faculty-guided independent study, by online
delivery systems, and by correspondence. Intensive seminar-type courses are offered in some locations. Computer-

Location: The college is located five km from Somerset West, Republic of South Africa. This beautiful campus is
only 10 km from the Indian Ocean and 50 km from Cape Town.

History: Helderberg College was established as Claremont Union College at Claremont, Cape Town in 1893 as the
first Seventh-day Adventist educational institution established by the church outside of North America. It moved in
1919 to Natal with the name of South African Training School and subsequently as Spionkop College near
Ladysmith. In 1928 the college moved to its present location, on a 150 hectare fruit farm on the southern slopes of
Helderberg Mountain, from which the college derives its name, near Somerset West, in the Western Cape.
          Helderberg College offered baccalaureate degrees as an affiliated extension campus of Andrews University
from 1975 to 2000 with teach-out to 2004. The B.B.A. degree shifted to Southern Adventist University for the
period 1997 to 2000 with teach-out to 2004.
          The College is registered by the South African Department of Education and Accredited by the Council on
Higher Education since 2001, with its current registration valid until 2011. All the programs offered by the College
have been submitted to The South African Qualifications Authority and are registered on the National
Qualifications Framework and the affiliations with Andrews University and Southern Adventist University have
been terminated.
          Closure of Bethel College has made Helderberg College the sole source of ministers for South Africa. The
changing social and political environment in South Africa in general has forced Helderberg College to re-evaluate
its mission, market, and purpose.

Educational Program: The college offers degree programs in business, arts, theology, and other fields as well as
diplomas in business and office administration.

Location: This coeducational senior college is located in a country park area, amidst pristine surroundings despite
the staggering amount of infrastructure development in the heart of Hong Kong. It is located half an hour away (by
bus) from the Choi Hung MTR (mass transit railway) station. By 2002, the railway will be extended to a nearby
township just 10 minutes away.

History: The educational program conducted by Seventh-day Adventists in China had its beginning in the South. In
1903 the Church opened its first school taught in Chinese. This school was conducted especially for girls and was
called “The Bethel Girls’ School.” Miss Ida Thompson acted as the first principal.

Shortly after this, Pastor C. H. Wilbur established the “Yick Chi Boys’ School.” However, because of some
difficulties, this school was closed down after several years of operation. It was opened again in 1915 under the
direction of Pastor A. L. Ham, at which time it was renamed “Sam Yuk School.” This name in later years became
prominently identified with Seventh-day Adventist education throughout Asia.

This first Sam Yuk School prospered. As a result, suitable ground was purchased in the eastern part of the city of
Guangzhou. In 1922, a school was erected. As soon as the new buildings were ready for occupancy, the Bethel
Girls’ School was incorporated as a part of the new co-ed system known as Sam Yuk Middle School. With the
beginning of the Sam Yuk Middle School in 1915, the educational work of Seventh-day Adventists in China
followed somewhat the same pattern as those conducted in the United States and Europe and catered specifically to
the education of Seventh-day Adventist children. Following this plan, the Sam Yuk Middle School served the
Guangzhou, Hakka, and Guangxi Missions in the South China region.

In 1935 the South China Union Mission at its biennial session voted to take over the direction of the Sam Yuk
Middle School and to rename it “South China Training Institute.” It was further voted at that time that the school
serve the provinces of Guangdong, Guangxi, and Fujian.

Following the rise of turmoil in China as a result of the Sino-Japanese War in 1937, the school was moved to Hong
Kong and temporarily established in Shatin in the New Territories. During this time, the China Training Institute
(Junior College) from Central China was also moved to the same quarters and the school was given the double
name, “The China and South China Training Institute.” Soon after this, 40 acres of land was purchased at Clear
Water Way, Kowloon, Hong Kong. After the buildings were completed two years later, the school was moved to
the present site.

When World War II was over, the school first operated at its former site in the district of Tungshan in Guangzhou
and remained there for one year. Then, in December 1947, the school moved back to Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong.
Though the school from its inception had to make frequent moved as a result of calamities of war, God’s hadn was
constantly over the school. In 1958, when need was felt for further training opportunities for Seventh-day Adventist
youth, the Far Eastern Division of Seventh-day Adventists (renamed in 1995 as the Asia-Pacific
Division)authorized the South China Island Union Mission to open a college to be operated in connection with the
secondary school on the campus at Clear Water Bay. A college curriculum was introduced in 1962 and the school
name was officially changed to South China Union College in 1964.
In 1981, the constituency of the South China Island Union Mission officially divided South China Union College
into two institutions and adopted the name of Hong Kong Adventist College to identify the college program as a
separate entity form the secondary program of Sam Yuk Middle School. The College was subsequently registered
with and approved by the Education Department of Hong Kong.
                                                         50
In 1982, the College implemented an affiliation with Loma Linda University (subsequently La Sierra University)
through which students enrolled in Theology and Religion programs could receive degrees granted by the
University. This relationship ended in 1996 after which, the college sought an affiliation with Walla Walla College.
As a result of this affiliation, it is accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges (NASC), and
given recognition by the Hong Kong Education Department as well as the Non-local Course Registry of Hong
Kong. Its theological programs are also accredited by the Association of Theological Schools of Southeast Asia
(ATESEA).

In 1995, the College began a major redevelopment program, the first phase of which has been completed in 1997.
This has added three sets of buildings, an administrative-classroom block that also incorporates a 1,000-seat
multipurpose hall and a 400-seat cafeteria, a four-story student dormitory block with separate entrances for men and
women and private residences for two residence hall deans along with a smaller multipurpose hall for dormitory
student use and three blocks of four-story staff quarters to accommodate twenty-eight families.

Hong Kong Adventist College is a member of the world-wide system of Seventh-day Adventist schools and
colleges. In 2000, the college was granted a full-five-year accreditation by the Adventist Accrediting Association.
Hence, all credits and diplomas of the College are given world-wide recognition by all other Seventh-day Adventist
institutions of higher learning.

Educational Program: The college is a four-year post-secondary institution offering degree programs in affiliation
with Walla Walla University, two-year diplomas and one-year certificates. It also conducts an English Language
Institute, and a two-year Advanced-level Matriculation Program (HK system). In addition, a College Foundation
program allows students who lack regular entrance to prove themselves for a year under the American system
before they are admitted into the regular college program.

Location: The IATS is an institution of theological graduate studies organized by the IAD which converges,
academically and operationally, with the existing undergraduate Theology Departments at the IAD tertiary
institutions in order to offer graduate degrees to the pastors within its territory. By this action graduate education in
Religion/Theology is offered and/or controlled only by the IATS in the Inter-American Division.

History: Up until the biennial session of the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada
(ATS), held in Toronto, Canada, in June 2000, when the Inter-American Adventist Theological Seminary (IATS)
was received as a “candidate for accreditation.” the IATS was working under the umbrella of the Seventh-day
Adventist Theological Seminary (SDATS) at Andrews University. Until then, IATS operated as an extension of the
SDATS at Andrews and under its accreditation authority. Several of our new sites received ATS accreditation visits
since the SDATS was conducting programs there. The IATS organizing committee chose the institutions with this
active program to form the nucleus of the new Inter-American Adventist Theological Seminary. The five founding
institutions were, Montemorelos University in Mexico; Antillian Adventist University in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico;
Northern Caribbean University in Mandeville, Jamaica; Caribbean Union College in Port of Spain, Trinidad; and
Colombia Adventist University in Medellin, Colombia.
          Since the IATS is a composite institution made up of seven different sites, in seven different countries,
each of them have their own history and their own peculiarities. Even though there are different geographical,
political, financial, ethnical and cultural realities, they all operate guided by the same mission, principles, purpose
and objectives. The seven sites are Antillean Adventist University, Caribbean Union College, Colombia Adventist
University, Dominican Adventist University, Montemorelos University, Northern Caribbean University, and
Venezuela Adventist University.

Educational Program: Initially, the programs offered are the Master of Arts in Religion (32 semester credits,
normally based on a B.Th. Degree), and the Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology (48 semester credits, based on a B.
Th. Degree of its educational equivalent). A special effort will be made to make the courses relevant to the different
cultural, ethnic, and natural contexts. A program for a D. Min. is being offered at Montemorelos University
(Mexico) in Spanish and at Northern Caribbean University (Jamaica) in English.

Location: Villa Aurora originated as a 15th century Renaissance “Villa.” Over time, the campus has changed
thanks to projects of restoration and enlargement, including new buildings. The campus is attractively located on a
sloping hill and is situated very close to the center of Florence. Thus the campus is not far from Tuscany’s capital
which is also the key sight of the Italian Renaissance.

History: The “Villa Aurora” Institute was acquired from the Seventh-day Adventist Italian Union in 1943. The
Institute’s chief objective has always been to provide a quality Adventist education. For a period of time the
Institute had a Junior High School and a High School. Later the Institute decided to carry forward and develop only
the two programs that are currently available. These are the Theological Program and the Program of Italian
Language, Art and Culture.

Educational Program: Adventist Accrediting Association recognizes a 3-year Theology program. A 4th year is
presently being piloted. AAA approval is pending.

The Language Program and Italian Culture and Art Program has both an annual and summer format, both of which
are under the aegis of the Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA). The courses provide the ideal opportunity to learn
directly the Italian culture in its various aspects. This is also thanks to the art laboratories and cultural visits to
museums as well as to the most important centers of art in Italy.

The success of these programs continues to offer new opportunities for two-way learning between our Italian
culture and the cultures that our various students represent. We too learn from the experiences our students bring to
Villa Aurora! And all of this takes place within an Adventist context.

Indonesian unions. With the creation of the East Indonesian Union, the need for a worker-training institution
became more pressing. In 1965, General Conference authorization was given to open a junior college. Four years
later the college was authorized to offer theology and teacher-training bachelor's degrees. Since then majors in
business, social studies, and secondary education have also been added. In 1981, the college was granted university
status by the Indonesian government with Schools of Theology, Business, Education, and Agriculture.

Educational Program: Currently, students may pursue studies leading to a number of certificate and bachelor

Location: The present 55-acre campus is situated in the suburbs of the well known and beautiful city of Bangalore
in Karnataka State. Such a location provides the students an opportunity to obtain education in a very favorable
surrounding. Out of these 55 acres, an area of 22 acres comprises of buildings and playgrounds, 33 acres are
utilized for agricultural purposes.

History: The history of Lowry Adventist College began in 1915 when Elder G. G. Lowry established a school in
Coimbatore. In 1916, the name Higher Secondary School had been changed to South India Training School. In
1917, the School was moved to rented quarters in Bangalore Cantonment.
         In 1931, another boarding school was started in Basavanagudi, Bangalore for the benefit of training
Kannada speaking people. Due to several reasons it was closed down in 1932 and its student body was invited to
become part of South India Training School at Krishnarajapuram. The South India Training School steadily grew to
become Spicer Memorial College, which is now situated in Pune.
         In 1942, the campus was taken away by the government for military purpose. The School was relocated at
Kollegal where it remained until 1945. In the same year, the School had to change its location to Channapatana.
         In 1946, the government relinquished the School property and the School was moved for the last time to its
present location. Following the addition of high school section, the School was renamed as Lowry Memorial High
School in honor of late Elder G. G. Lowry, a noted educationalist and a noted social worker of the Seventh-day
Adventist Church in Southern Asia Division
         In the years that followed, this institution underwent gradual changes to become one of the pioneer
educational institutions of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Southern Asia Division. In the year 1998, it was
upgraded to a senior college offering undergraduate courses and was renamed as Lowry Adventist College.

History: Adventist health ministry in the Philippines started in 1927 with the opening of a modest dispensary in
Malate, Manila. Within a few years the vision and commitment of the pioneers turned the small dispensary into a 3-
story facility under the name of Manila Sanitarium and Hospital. Its philosophy of Christian compassion and
excellence in care, following the model of Jesus as the minister of health and the direction of Ellen White’s counsel
on a wholistic healing ministry soon gained the institution national fame. From 1930 to 1959 the institution offered
a 3-year nursing program, attracting Adventist young people from throughout the country to the ministry of healing.
Nurses graduating from the institution took the healing ministry not only to the cities and towns of the Philippines,
but also to various Adventist institutions throughout the then Far Eastern Division and beyond. Meanwhile the
expanding ministry of the hospital made it necessary to move from Malate in 1940 to the present site in Pasay City
to a new 4-story hospital

World War II put the hospital out of commission. As the occupation ended, the hospital was left demolished. In
1949 the reconstruction was constructed, and once again medical ministry began with great enthusiasm and
dedication, with wholistic Christian healing on its wings. In 1954 the hospital began a medical technology program
which was handed over later to the Philippine Union College. Already the nursing program started by the hospital
had merged into the Philippine Union College, which in 1997 became Adventist University of the Philippines.

Meanwhile the hospital that began as a clinic was growing into a major health-care institution, specializing in
several areas, including acute coronary care. The hospital also continued to function as the sole clinical training
center for nursing students of AUP. However, the professional growth and the demand of the growing Adventist
constituency in Metro Manila and nearby areas brought dramatic changes to the functioning of the hospital. In
1993-94, the hospital introduced courses in radiologic technology, midwifery, physical therapy technician, nurse
assistant – all of these to serve mainly the in-house needs of the hospital, and no longer taught at AUP.

After several evaluations by the Commission on High Education of the Philippines (CHED), the Commission
suggested that the hospital should move toward offering degree courses in physical therapy (1993-94), and later
radiology, becoming the initial components of the School of Medical Arts. In 2003-04, the Commission signaled
the start of a B.S. in nursing. The possibility of the nursing course was immediately welcomed by the Adventist
constituency in Manila and the general population. After two years of study, both the Union and the Division
forwarded the proposal of the Manila Adventist Medical Center Hospital to begin the School of Medical Arts to the
General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

Educational Program: The proposal requested the establishment of the school, with the following programs:
Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy, Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology, Bachelor of Science in
Nursing, and certificates in midwifery, nurse assistant and caregiver.

History: Mindanao Sanitarium and Hospital College of Medical Arts is a hospital-based institution. The hospital
traces back its history to 1948 when the post-War situation on the Mindanao Island provided both a challenge and
an opportunity to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the Philippines: a challenge to minister to the thousands
affected by the War and in need of health care; and an opportunity to witness for the Adventist message. With that
objective as the driving motive, the Philippine Union Mission opened a small clinic in rented facilities in Marawi
City. Four years later the increasing need for health service motivated the clinic to be moved to Illigan City, while
some services still continued to be rendered at Marawi City. In 1952, construction of a hospital building started on a
newly purchased 2-hectare site in Illigan City, and a year later Mindanao Sanitarium and Hospital opened its doors
to the public. By 1970 the bed-capacity increased to 75 and the hospital gained reputation for its caring service and
ministry. From 1971 onward the hospital became the clinical facility of Mountain View College’s nursing program.

Early in the 1990s, the hospital was facing an acute need for staffing its key functions, particularly in physical
therapy and radiology. To fill this need, the hospital started a physical therapy and a midwifery program in 1993.
Within two years physical therapy enrollment declined, and the administration felt it was necessary to open a
nursing school to sustain both the budding college and the hospital. The college started the B.S. nursing program
in1999, and began to function under the name Mindanao Sanitarium and Hospital College of Medical Arts
Foundation. This and new governmental regulations brought to an end the clinical cooperation between the hospital
and Mountain View College. Meanwhile, a new building to house the college was completed in 1995. Commission
on Higher Education of the Philippines (CHED) recognized the nursing program in 2002.

Educational Program: The college offers Bachelor of Science programs in nursing, medical laboratory technology,
and radiologic technology.

classrooms, staff offices, and dormitory facilities. In 1986 Bangkok Hospital School of Nursing was raised from
the diploma program to a baccalaureate program in Nursing, hence the establishment of Mission College. In 1990,
an extension campus was opened in Muak Lek to offer a wider curriculum. In 1998, Southeast Asia Union College

History: Sixty years ago Myanmar Union Adventist Seminary began as a small Seventh-day Adventist Secondary
School at Myaungmya. For years graduates of this institution proceeded to Spicer Memorial College, India, to
obtain collegiate training in various fields, particularly in ministerial training, education, and business, and these
graduates returned to the Union to provide the bulwark of the working force of the church. Around 1960, the
Southern Asia Division upgraded the institution into a junior college status, and the first batch of associate degree
holders graduated in 1962.

Situated on 21 acres of fertile land in Mosokwin, Myaungmya, 137 miles southwest of Yangon, along the Yangon-
Pathein waterway, the institution has steadily grown in enrollment and in various areas of training. With the
realignment of Myanmar Union from Southern Asia Division into the Far Eastern Division in 1985, the educational
scene shifted at the seminary. The Southern Asia Division plus-2 program was dropped, and a two-year junior
seminary was introduced. Both the Far Eastern Division and the Myanmar Union encouraged the seminary to work
toward strengthening the institution with a view to becoming a full-fledged four-year seminary to give adequate
education to Seventh-day Adventist young people in Myanmar.

At the request of the Southern Asia-Pacific Division which became the directing body of the seminary since the
division was organized in 1995, the General Conference Education Department set up an on-site committee to visit
Myanmar Union Seminary and consider the viability of upgrading seminary into a four-year seminary, offering
degree programs. The committee recommended candidacy for accreditation.

History: At the foothills of cloud covered Mt. Issarog and overlooking the city of Naga, Philippines, Naga View
College is located as Adventist educational center for the region. It began its historic mission in 1965 on a 106
hectare of verdant and fertile property. The college started as an academy with 62 students and seven faculty and
staff. In 1969 a primary school was added.
 Because graduates of the academy found it expensive and too far to go to Philippine Union College, the leadership
of academy, local mission, Union mission, and PUC worked out an arrangement whereby PUC could operate an
extension campus at Naga View for the first two years of college study, from which students could transfer to PUC,
continue studies there and graduate. In 1997, PUC (now AUP) Board divested itself of its responsibility for
extension-campus programs, and the North Philippine Union Mission authorized Naga View to commence
proceedings for starting a denominational senior college.
 Since the 1997 action of AUP relieving itself of responsibility for extension-campus program at Naga View, both
the institution and the Union Mission have sought out other options including independent functioning, utilizing the
already available government recognition and seeking accreditation under the Accrediting Association of Seventh-
day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities. With this in view, North Philippine Union Mission (Action 97-
295) and Southern Asia-Pacific Division (Action 99-30) after considerable study and debate forwarded to
International Board of Education on May 17, 1999, the request of the college, along with needed endorsements, to
be upgraded into a senior college under denominational accreditation.

Educational Program: The college, on its own, hold government recognition since 1987, and has been offering the
following programs: Two-year Secretarial Science Certificate with computer; Bachelor of Elementary Education;
Bachelor of Secondary Education with majors in English, Filipino, Mathematics, Music, and Physical Education,

Location: Northeast Adventist College is located on a beautiful pine wooded 161.19 acres of rolling land which is
on NH44 Shillong Jowai Road, 7 kms from Jowai town. The school is accessible only by bus either from Silchar or
from Guwahati through Shillong.

History: Adventist Training School, founded in 1941, has been serving the youth of the Seventh-day Adventist
Church in Northeast India Section. Located on 32 acres of beautiful rolling hills, the school has gradually
progressed from elementary to secondary to higher secondary levels, graduating hundreds of young people who
have sought higher education in the church-operated Spicer Memorial College in Pune, Maharashtra, and have
served the church in various positions. As the church has developed its educational ministry within the Union
through several other schools, and as more and more young people have sought employment in various
organizations and self-supporting avenues, it became necessary that the union seek recognized degrees within its
educational systems. At present, 8 out of 10 college -eligible youth are attending non-SDA institutions. At the same
time the growing Adventist elementary and secondary schools in the Union are seeking Adventist trained teachers.
With these facts in mind, the union and the Adventist Training School (ATS) have been seeking an opportunity
whereby the school can obtain an affiliated status as a college. The opportunity came in 1999 when the
Northeastern Hill University (NEHU)extended an invitation to ATS to begin tertiary education leading to B.A.
degree in arts. The ATS Board, the Union, and the Division considered the proposal and voted to begin collegiate
studies under the name Northeast Adventist College.
         The institution at present in its KG-12 level has 1,073 students. The first year of college began with 9
students, and the second year has 19. It is expected that as the institution matures and its programs become known
throughout the Union and the neighboring areas, more students will join.

and Political Science with common subjects of English and either Mizo or Khasi languages.

Location: The University is a co-educational tertiary institution, situated about 20 km from Port Moresby, the
capital city of Papua New Guinea. The site, of approximately 460 hectares, is made up of flats and gently rolling
country, set between fairly steep rows of hills. The climate is tropical, with decided wet and dry seasons, and the
natural vegetation of the area is largely grasses and hardy eucalyptus shrubs. The University is almost at the base of
the foothills to the Owen Stanley Range - a majestic line of mountains with peaks reaching to over 4000 meters.
Close to the University is the Variarata National Park and the Sogeri plateau , with the Sirinumu Dam which
supplies water for Port Moresby. The normal temperature range is about 22-32 degrees centigrade, with a few days
and nights each year going above and below those levels. The monsoon rains that come about November or
December usher in a wet season of several months, but most of the rest of the year is dry.

History: The Australasian Division of Seventh-day Adventists (now South Pacific Division) took action in July
1978 to establish a new tertiary college to meet the needs of the South Pacific Island region. Work on the selected
site began in 1979, and the college was opened by the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea in February 1984. In
August 1983 the House of Assembly of Papua New Guinea passed the Pacific Adventist College Act, giving
recognition and status to the institution. In July 1987 an initial accreditation visit on behalf of the Board of Regents
gave recognition to the college and its program. Under the terms of the Pacific Adventist University Act of October
1997, the Papua New Guinea Parliament officially upgraded the college to full University status and gave authority
to alter the name of the institution to Pacific Adventist University.

Educational Program: Courses are offered which enable students to earn degrees in business, education, and
theology, and three year diplomas in office administration.

Location: Penang, Malaysia

History: The Adventist health ministry in Penang, Malaysia started with a small clinic in 1924. As the clinic later
grew into a major health-care institution, the growth demanded that the hospital have more trained nursing
personnel. During the early years, this need was filled by recruiting locally trained nurses, who happened to be
mostly non-Adventist in background and philosophy. In addition the hospital also brought in nurses from the
Philippines, Thailand, and India. However, the supply was not able to meet the growing hospital and its services. In
the 60s till 1980, Penang Adventist Hospital had been sending students to undergo nursing training in The School of
Nursing of the Bangkok Adventist Hospital, Thailand.

In the mid 1980s, the government of Thailand disallowed foreign students from sitting for the national certificate
and registration examination, thus The Penang Adventist Hospital stopped sending students to Thailand as these
students would not be recognized nor given permit to practice nursing in Malaysia when they returned.

Meanwhile most countries in the world were facing the problem of nursing shortage. The hospital and church
authorities increasingly felt the pressure of an Adventist nursing training center, and after repeated attempts and
proposals, the Government authorized the hospital in October 1992 to being a nursing college that will offer a
three-year Diploma Program. The authorization listed the prerequisites in terms of teaching and clinical facilities,
qualified teaching personnel, and other resources such as library, teaching aids, etc. and the first class was to begin
in less than year’s time. The hospital and the college worked feverishly, recruited students, built a skeleton teaching
staff, cared for other prerequisites and opened the doors of the College of Nursing in 1993 with 19 students. Five
years later, the Government permitted the College to introduce a 2-year nursing certificate program, which had its
first batch of students in 1998.

In 2002, the College felt that it was time that it officially became a member of the world wide academic community
of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and applied through regular denominational channels recognition from
International Board of Education (IBE) and accreditation from Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist
Schools, Colleges, and Universities (AAA).

Educational Program: Two-year Assistant Nurse Program (AN)and three-year diploma program (RN). The
curriculum presently being implemented is prescribed by the Ministry of Health and structured as having three
strands: Nursing Science, Health Science, and Behavioral Sciences. Religion and English are also included.

Location: The Polish Senior College of Theology is situated in peaceful surroundings just outside Warsaw, in the
small rural community of Podkowa Leśna. The College also operates five satellite institutes around the country in
Kraków, Tychy, Nysa, Lublin, and Gdańsk. On these sites the College collaborates with local privately owned
schools, such as schools of tourism, which provide facilities, advertising, local management and some of the
teaching staff.

History: The beginning of the Polish College of Theology was in 1926 as the Polish Spiritual Seminary, which
operated as a theological high school. After several moves and closures due to a variety of political situations, the
Seminary moved to Podkowa Leśna in 1959 as a four-year undergraduate seminary. The seminary operated at a
variety of levels until 1995, when the government granted it the right to award degrees to the equivalent of BA
level, as long as this was linked to the field of Adventist theology. Since that time, the name of the Seminary has
been changed to the Polish Senior College of Theology and the number of courses offered increased significantly,
although all courses still remain tightly coupled with Adventist theology.

Educational Program: Podkowa Leśna, the central campus, is the only site for teaching the BA in Theology
(Pastoral) and BA in Religious Education, both of which are offered on a regular full-time basis. Both the central
and satellite sites deliver BA degrees in Tourism of Biblical Lands and Health Promotion on an intensive basis.
Students (non-degree) also study in the School of Foreign Languages and Biblical Theology Studies

Location: The school occupies two buildings, an administration building and the central Seventh-day Adventist
Church, in the center of the city of Braila. Braila is approximately 200 km east of Bucharest.

History: In 1990, the association Sanate si Temperanta (“Health and Temperance”) was officially organized within
the Romanian Adventist Union. In 1991 it started to operate a private nursing school called Doctor Luca, under the
leadership of Dr. Ene Paulini in two small buildings located in Braila. In 1994 the association obtained official
permission for the operation of the school. A parochial house was set up as dormitory in the vicinity of the school.
In 2001, an additional nearby house was purchased to enlarge the available accommodations. In 2002 a new school
building for classrooms, administrative offices and chapel was built and equipped.

          In 1995 the Adventist Accrediting Association granted candidacy status for accreditation to the Romanian
Adventist Nursing School. This candidacy status was extended in 1997 to 2001, when it expired. In 2003 the
institution requested reaccreditation. An evaluation team visited the school in April 18-19, 2004, and recommended
accreditation for a two year period ending December 31, 2006, and that an interim report be sent before December
31, 2005. At the request of the institution and the Romanian Union the scheduled visit was postpoined to September
23-25, 2007.

Educational Program: The school offers a 3-year diploma in nursing based on the Seventh-day Adventist
philosophy of health.

Location: Not far from the magnificent Shivalik range of the Himalayas in northern India is a small town named
Roorkee, located just across the borders of the new state, Uttranchal. With a population of approximately 1 lakh,
Roorkee is known for its military base and its Engineering University. Located in the suburbs just outside the town
of Roorkee (4 km south), the Inter College is adjacent to National Highway 45. The town provides direct railway
services to the metropolitan cities of Delhi, Lucknow, Bombay and Calcutta and many other major cities and towns
in the neighboring states.

History: The Roorkee Adventist Inter College had its beginning 74 years ago, when the North India Union
purchased land at its present location to begin training workers for the emerging work of the church. With 12
charter members of the student body and under the leadership of the future eminent theologian, F. H. Loasby, the
institution began what turned out to be the premiere training institution of the church in pre-1947 North India.
Within 4 years, the school acquired 100 acres of farm land that continue to provide till today work opportunities for
students. By 1937, the school expanded into a coeducational center, slowly emerging into an elementary and
secondary school, with the worker-training program being transferred to Spicer College. By early 60s the school
was offering a full fledged high school education, and by 1975, the school became a plus-2 institution with 12
grades of education, eventually being recognized by the Indian School Certificate organization as an inter-college.
Graduates were eligible for entrance into regular professional and tertiary institutions, and the development of
denominational workers in Northern Union largely depended on these graduates going to Spicer College.
          During this time of development, the institution added modern facilities, such as the main administration
building, modern hostels, and comfortable staff homes. The assumption of leadership by Edwin Dass, an alumnus,
in 1988 propelled the school in new developmental directions: aesthetics and beauty on the college campus, a well
constructed master plan for the development of the school, addition of modern facilities to the dormitories,
comfortable living quarters for teachers, a new appreciation for the school in the community and the church, and a
quest for new academic frontiers. The current building complex is one of the finest in Southern Asia, and has
adequate facilities to provide quality education to the current enrollment of 629 students, of whom 406 are in
boarding. Roughly 50% of students are non-SDA.

Educational Program: The quest for new academic frontiers on the part of the school and union leadership led
them to seek allegiance with an emerging concept of post-secondary education in the country: the community
college, which is somewhat an in-between position between a plus-2 and a full-fledged tertiary institution. The
community college offers post-secondary education, somewhat similar to a junior college system in the United
States, but offering a vocational training leading to one or two year certificate or a regular two-year associate degree
status. The former is vocational; the latter is both vocational and transferable to a college education, leading to a
recognized degree.
         The current proposal of the school is to seek a status that will lead to both vocational possibility and
vertical mobility in tertiary education.

Location: The College is situated within the area of Seventh-day Adventist Sanatorium Hospital located at the
northeast part of Seoul.

History: The history of Sahmyook Nursing & Health College traces its origin back to 1936 when Dr. Jey-Han, Yoo
founded a training school for nurses attached to Kyung-Sung Sanatorium Hospital. It was temporarily shut down
from 1943 to 1947 because of the Japanese occupation on the Korean peninsula. After the independence from
Japanese suppression in November, 1947, the training school for nurses changed its name to Nursing High School
attached to Seoul Adventist Hospital renamed from Kyung-sung Sanitarium Hospital. During the Korean War, the
retreat on Jan. 4, 1951, resulted in an evacuation of the school to Cheju island for safety and the school took classes
temporarily there for eight months until the allied forces restored the capital, Seoul, in September, 1951. In 1958
Nursing High School attached to Seoul Adventist Hospital was officially approved by the Ministry of Education.
Nursing High School was accredited as Seoul Adventist Hospital Nursing High School in 1962. The school was
approved in 1973 as a Professional Nursing School, uplifted. In November 1977, the name of Nursing School was
changed to Sahmyook Nursing Professional School. On December 28, 1978, Sahmyook Nursing Professional
School which had evolved from the training school for nurses attached to Kyung-sung Sanatorium Hospital had
been upgraded to Sahmyook Nursing Junior College. All the classes offered by Sahmyook Nursing Junior College
were held at Sahmyook University until its new building was constructed in December 1990 at where this College
stands now. An educational drive spurred to expend the institution resulted in a decision to offer the new degree
program, Department of Dental Hygiene with 50 students as an evening class and to increase the number of students
of the Department of Nursing up to 50 from 40 in October, 1995. One year later the Department of Nursing
increased the number of the admission quota up to 100. In 1997,a new wing was attached to the main compound
and a Department of Cosmetology & Beauty with 100 students put its first step into the educational history of
Sahmyook Nursing College. According to an educational policy to specialize each department, the name of the
college was changed to Sahmyook Nursing & Health College. In November 1998, the Department of Natural
Health & Family Welfare with 80 students was accredited to launch and the Department of Cosmetology & Beauty
increased the number of students up to 40 in the evening class. Another educational shift was the change of the
program of Dental Hygiene Department offered in the evening to the daytime class. The present new instructional
building, doubled in size, holds all educational facilities that make it possible for the students as well as all faculty
members to assist their researches and studies.

In September 2001, the Department of Medical Information System with 40 students was accredited to launch and
Department of Natural Health and Family Welfare was changed to Department of Health and Social Welfare. To
increase the number of students of the Department of Health and Social Welfare up to 90 from 80 and the
Department of Cosmetology up to 110 fromo 100 and the Department of Medical Information System up to 90 from
40 in September 2003.

Location: The University is situated on a 200-acre campus ten miles northeast of Seoul.

History: When Adventist pioneers opened “Aiming School” in 1906, in Soonan, in the outskirts of Pyungyang,
now in North Korea, little did they dream that the mustard seed in Adventist education they planted would by the
end of the century turn into a large tree giving shelter and spiritual security to over 5,000 young people. Eleven
years after the first Adventist school was founded in the Korean peninsula, the church introduced a two-year
ministerial training program to upgrade and prepare workers for the emerging groups of believers.
          In April 1931, the ministerial department of the school moved to Seoul, closer to the union mission
headquarters. World War II, however, forced the closure of the institution. It was reopened in 1949 at the present
site, only to be closed again when the Korean War broke out in June 1950. The school reopened in November 1950
as Korean Union Training School. In 1954 the school received government permission to operate a four-year
tertiary program. Seven years later, the Ministry of Education approved the school to operate as Sahmyook
Theological College and grant degrees. In 1962, the government granted permission to operate Sahmyook Industrial
Junior College, with agriculture and home economics as emphases. In 1966, the institution was renamed Sahmyook
College, with both agriculture and home economics receiving a four-year degree status.
          The ensuing years saw the institution expand in terms of students, facilities and course offerings. By the
time the college was renamed as Sahmyook University in 1992, it had added significant departments, such as
English, Nursing, Business Administration, Nutrition, Chemistry, Music Education, Biology, Horticulture,
Rehabilitation and Dairy Science. Today the university operates an undergraduate program in 19 departments, a
graduate program in four areas, and a junior college offering associate degrees in 15 areas.

Educational Program: The university offers a wide range of programs from associate degrees to graduate level
courses. In all programs the institution attempts to make the course interesting and practical.

Location: Sazava Theological Seminary is located approximately 55 km from the capital city Prague in a small
historical town Sazava. The seminary campus is in a beautiful park next to the river.

History: Sazava Theological Seminary was established in 1925 in order to train ministers for the Czecho-Slovakian
Union which now comprises the Bohemian, Moravian-Silesian, and Slovak Conferences. During the communist
period, after an enforced closing down of the Seminary in 1973, the church trained its pastors only in extension
courses.
          In 1990 the Seminary reopened. A new four-year program (more or less equivalent to the BA level) was
developed for pastoral training. The main task of the Seminary during this phase was to obtain its own campus and
buildings. After operating in leased buildings in Prague and its close vicinity, the Seminary moved into its present
campus in Sazava in March 1995. New construction work started in 1996.
          In 1997 accreditation (candidacy status) for the Bachelor of Theology (BTh.) program was granted to
Sazava Theological Seminary by the International Board of Education.
          In 1998 the Department of Education of the Czech Republic granted state recognition to the first 3-year
theological program, conferring to the students the title of “Professional Specialist in Theology and Pastoral
Ministry” (DiS).
          In January 2000, the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges and Universities
granted the Sazava Theological Seminary continuing accreditation for a BTh program, and shorter programs for the
training of lay members. The last accreditation visit took place in December 2003. An interim visit took place in
December 2005. In September 2007 the Adventist Accrediting Association made another visit to the Seminary.

Educational Program: In 1997 accreditation (candidacy status) for the Bachelor of Theology (B. Th.) Program was
granted to Sazava Theological Seminary by the International Board of Education. In 1998 the Department of
Education of the Czech Republic granted state recognition (accreditation) to the first 3-year theological program.
Students will be conferred the title of “Professional Specialist in Theology and Pastoral Ministry” (DiS).

Location: The University is located in the Matabeleland South region of Zimbabwe on 8,800 acres 32 miles west
of Bulawayo, at an elevation of some 4,350 feet above sea level.

History: Solusi University traces back its roots to 1894 when it became the second Seventh-day Adventist Mission
station in southern Africa. Soon a regional workers training programs was developed. As early as 1905, graduates
from the program reached beyond the borders of then Southern Rhodesia to help establish mission stations in
neighboring countries. By 1929, a government-approved teacher training program began its operation. In 1949, a
secondary school was established. In 1956, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists authorized the
upgrading of the institution to senior college status. The upgrading brought students from all over Africa, and soon
Solusi College became internationally known as an academically respectable Adventist institution of higher
learning.
          After a two-year closure, owing to war, the college reopened in 1980. Four years later, the college obtained
an affiliation with Andrews University. The affiliation brought with it academic growth, internationally accepted
standards in curriculum, upgrading of faculty, library and other facilities. In 1987 and 1993, the college obtained
full accreditation from the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities.
In 1994, the Government of Zimbabwe issued the Solusi University Charter, authorizing the institution to operate as
a private university.
          Solusi University,along with Helderberg College and Adventist University Zurcher, were Division
institutions but were designated as Union institutions in January 2006. Solusi University is now owned and operated
by the Zimbabwe Union of Seventh-day Adventists. It is located on 8816 acres of farmland, some 50 kilometers
west of Bulawayo.

Educational Program: The University offers a selection of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of
Business Administration programs. The university also offers Master of Arts degrees in Pastoral Ministry. In 1994,
Solusi introduced new degree programs in computer science and a Master of Science in Home Economics (Family
and Consumer Sciences).

Location: Southern Adventist University (SAU) has an unusually beautiful educational setting, with over one
thousand acres of university property. The University is located 17 miles east of Chattanooga, in the foothills of the
Great Smoky Mountains. The forested slopes of White Oak Mountain and Bauxite Ridge provide a scenic
backdrop for the carefully landscaped grounds. Southern Adventist University is approximately 100 miles north of
Atlanta, 100 miles southwest of Knoxville, 130 miles southeast of Nashville, and 145 miles northeast of
Birmingham. Interstates 75, 24, and 59 provide easy access. The Chattanooga airport is 20 minutes from campus.
The 27 major buildings on the Collegedale campus include ten classroom buildings with 58 classrooms/laboratories
and a recital hall, two residence halls, a physical education center with swimming pool, and an administration
building adjacent to the cafeteria, student center, and computing center. The campus church seats 1,850 and houses
the Anton Heiller Memorial Organ (4,861 pipes).

History: Roots of Southern Adventist University were planted in 1892 when George W. Colcord began teaching 23
students in a room above the general store in Graysville, Tennessee. The school moved some thirty miles to well-
located farmland south of the Tennessee River in 1916. A pattern of sound growth was set with the establishment
of the junior college in 1916, called Southern Junior College; a four-year college in 1944 called Southern
Missionary College; an extension campus for Loma Linda University's master in education program in 1978; and
for Andrews University's graduate nursing program in 1986. Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists was
selected as the college name in 1982, and it became Southern Adventist University in 1996 when graduate studies
were added to the curriculum.

Educational Program: A strong career orientation in liberal arts, sciences, and pre-professional courses marks the
curriculum. Degrees include Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Fine Arts,
Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Social Work, Associate of Technology, Associate of Science,
or Associate of Arts degrees. Master’s degrees are available in education, nursing, business, counseling, and
religion. Pre-professional programs are also offered in health fields and in engineering and law. A one-year
certificate program is offered in auto service technician. The Modern Languages Department offers an international
studies program with three emphases, which require a year abroad. Semesters begin in late August and early
January, with graduation in early May. This often gives students an edge in the employment market. The summer
academic schedule includes three sessions.

Location: Sagunto Adventist College is nestled on a hillside among pine trees and orange groves, with a view of
the Mediterranean Sea and of the ruins of the ancient city of Saguntum, famous for the seige held there by Hannibal
in the third century before Christ. From Sagunto, there are frequent connections by bus or train to Valencia, the
third largest city in Spain, as well as bus service to the local beaches. The climate is mild and the winters generally
sunny.

History: Although the educational work in Spain goes back to the 1940's, it was not until 1965 that the new law of
religious liberty made it possible to open up a Seventh-day Adventist Seminary, first in Madrid and later in
Valencia. In 1974, the school was transferred to its present campus, five kilometers from Sagunto. The following
year, its secondary program received provisional accreditation from the Spanish government, which was confirmed
as full accreditation in 1978. At the college level, the institution participates in the North American Division
Adventist Colleges Abroad Program. In 2003, it was granted full accreditation as an international recognized
institution of tertiary level studies, and its program of Theology is accredited by the Accrediting Association.

Educational Program: Beyond its elementary and secondary sections, the College provides the four years of
ministerial training. Its Department of Spanish Language and Culture receives about 50 foreign students each
school year, most of them through the Adventist Colleges Abroad Program, and another 50-60 in its Summer
Language Program. Since 1995, it offers a Master of Education degree, and since 2004 a Master in Public Health,
which can be obtained through three consecutive summers of study.

Location: The College is located on 25 hectares of land close to Siantar City, 128 kilometers from Medan, the
capital city of North Sumatra Province.

History: Surya Nusantara College (SNC), formerly an extension of Universitas Advent Indonesia, Bandung, is
operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church under the control and supervision of West Indonesia Union Mission.
The college program started at the campus of North Sumatra Academy in 1977 with an enrollment of 60 students.
The programs were developed to meet the needs of the missions and the union in training the workers. The
constituency also felt the need for higher learning since some of the academy graduates from Sumatra cannot
continue their studies due to financial problems.

Education Program: After 10 years of the extension program, the government enacted a regulation prohibiting
extension status for all colleges and universities in Indonesia. The college, then, sought a new license to run the
program by requesting regional accrediting authorities (KOPERTIS I), and obtained approval to offer business
administration diploma, majoring in accounting and management. These two majors have been approved by the
Ministry of Education and Culture of Republic of Indonesia on June 5, 1992, No. 234/Dikti/Kep/1992, as a three-
year program. Applications for the departments of theology, education, and secretarial science are pending with the
government.

opportunities for research, study, and culture, through libraries, museums, a planetarium, and centers for the
performing arts.

History: The college was established in its present location in 1891. It was the first Seventh-day Adventist college
to receive regional accreditation as a senior college, with the original approval granted in 1937 by the North Central
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Accreditation has been maintained continuously since that time.
Union College was the first college in the United States to place computer terminals in all dormitory rooms, and the
first among Nebraska colleges and universities to install an on-line library system.

Educational Program: The College offers a solid liberal arts education plus practical experiences such as
internships, career counseling and study abroad. The Career Center offers freshman advising, personal and career
counseling, internship coordination, and assistance with senior job placement. Beyond that, each student receives
one-on-one attention from an advisor in his/her field of study. The Teaching-Learning Center offers instruction and
bypass strategies for students with dyslexia and other learning differences. The English as a Second Language
Department gives personal attention to international students who are learning English and adapting to a new
culture.

The College grants a Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies, baccalaureate degrees in Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor
of Arts in Theology, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Social
Work, Bachelor of Technology, and Bachelor of Education (offered at its extension campus in Canada), as well as

Location: The University of Arusha is located 30 km from Arusha-Moshi Road. It is 24 km from Arusha to the
Usa-River trading center. From Usa-River the institution can be reached by taking Momela National Park road a
distance of 6 km from the main road. It is located on a hill overlooking Mount Meru on the northwest side. On the
northeast lies Mount Kilimanjaro with its snow covered peak.

History: With the organization of Tanzania Union Mission in 1961, the union found it necessary to establish its
own training institution, which it did in 1970 at secondary level in Musoma, near Lake Victoria. Prior to this
students from Tanzania sought their education in Kenya and Uganda. In 1974, the Union moved the training center
to the present site as Arusha Seminary and College. In 1976 the college was renamed as Tanzania Adventist
College, offering two-year programs in affiliation with Griggs University. Two years later the affiliation shifted to
University of Eastern Africa, Baraton, offering a bachelor’s degree in theology. In addition the college also offered
two-year courses in business administration and secretarial science. The 2002 AAA visiting committee confirmed
the two-year status for the college.

Since 2002, the college has sought a charter from the Government of Tanzania. After several visits from concerned
government authorities, the college has obtained initial papers that will lead to an eventual charter, subject to
fulfilling certain conditions.

Education Program: The college, in affiliation with University of Arusha, Baraton, offers Bachelor of Theology,
Bachelor of Business Administration (accounting, management), and Bachelor of Education degree programs. As
and when the college obtains the university charter from the Tanzania government, the UEAB affiliation will cease
to exist. In addition, the college has applied for permission from the International Board of Education to offer a
diploma course in nursing. This request will be presented separately to the IBE.

Location: The University is located on the property which was once occupied by the government’s Baraton
Animal Husbandry Research Station of 339 acres. The property is located off Highway C-39 in the fertile valley of
Nandi District, approximately 320 km (200 miles) northwest of Nairobi, the modern capital of Kenya, and around
48 km (30 miles) southwest of Eldoret. The closest town and district headquarters is Kapsabet, about 16 km (10
miles) away. The locale known as Baraton is just across the entrance to the University. Though the site is only 29
km (18 miles) north of the equator, its altitude of 1,955 m (6,450 feet) gives it an eternal spring climate. Mount
Elgon, with an elevation of 4,296 m (14,178 feet), is visible from the campus.

History: The Adventist work in Kenya began around Lake Victoria in 1906. In 1928, the first school, Kamagambo
Secondary School and Teachers' Training College, was established near Kisii. Since then many other schools have
been started. But none of these offered a full postsecondary program. Students wishing to complete a Bachelor's
degree in a Seventh-day Adventist institution had to go outside East Africa. To remedy that situation, on October
25, 1978, the Afro-Mideast Division voted to establish a degree-granting institution in this region. On December
21, 1978, the Government of Kenya granted permission to the Seventh-day Adventist Church to use the Baraton
Animal Husbandry Research Station to establish such an institution. The Board of Regents, General Conference of
Seventh-day Adventists granted accreditation to the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton, in September 1987.

Educational Program: The University of Eastern Africa, Baraton, was chartered by the Government of the
Republic of Kenya in March, 1991, thus ending its affiliation with Andrews University.

1947, a Caribbean Training College was officially declared a junior college, offering two-year post-secondary
courses in theology, teacher training, and business and secretarial science. In 1956, by a second name change,
Caribbean Training College became Caribbean Union College.

Educational Program: In September 1970, an important academic extension was instituted at Caribbean Union
College. The two-year junior college program in theology was extended to a four-year program leading to the
Bachelor of Theology degree. Subsequent changes included the conferring of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of
Science, Bachelor of Business Administration, and Associate degrees in a wide range of major fields of study in
affiliation with Andrews University, Michigan, U.S.A., since 1985.

Location: Zambia Adventist University is located in the Southern Province of Zambia at the historic site of
Rusangu Mission, about 16kms south of the town of Monze, 12 kms on and 4kms off the main Lusaka-Livingstone
Road. Monze is about 200 kms south of Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia and about 300kms north of the world
famous Victoria Falls (Musi-o-Tunya).

History: The history of the Zambia Adventist University is closely linked with the missionary work of W. H.
Anderson who crossed the Zambezi River in 1903 from Solusi Mission in Zimbabwe to set up the Rusangu Mission
in Zambia in 1905. From this mission station grew the Rusangu Primary School, the Rusangu Secondary School and
eventually in 1975 the Rusangu Ministerial School, which in 1993, changed its name to Zambia Adventist
Seminary. A year later in 1994, the Seminary was closed to pave way for re-organization.
          In 1997, plans to re-open the Seminary brought the idea of the Zambia Adventist College that would offer
other courses in addition to theology and pastoral training. Subsequently, an in-service program for serving church
pastors began in 2000 at Riverside Farm Institute in collaboration with Solusi University. With the full development
of the Zambia Adventist College idea, this pastors’ program finally moved back to the historic Rusangu Mission site
in May 2003. Rapid developments have since given birth to a full fledged Zambia Adventist University which is
approved and registered as private University under University Act 11 of 1999 by the Government of the Republic
of Zambia.
          A master plan has been drawn for a new, modern University campus to be developed on Farm 269a Monze
in five phases at a total estimated cost of US$ 12.6 million at current Zambian prices. Pre-Phase 1 facilities already
in place include lecture rooms with a library and two hostels. The construction of an administrative block that will
house offices and additional lecture rooms is in progress. Phase 1 of the campus development, whose construction
is underway will cost in the region of US$1.9 million.

Educational Program: The goal of the Zambia Adventist University is to offer holistic education that combines the
practical application (the hand) of academics (the head) with God inspired wisdom and intelligence (the heart).

of the library was completed. In 1995 the E. G. White Research Center was opened. The new, spacious cafeteria
