The Dean of the School

Welcome to the School of Education at George Benson Christian University College! It is a privilege to represent the faculty and staff members that serve our campus through research, scholarship, teaching and support services.

I am extremely proud of the rich tradition of providing practical, experiential Christian-based education that our University has upheld since its founding. Our undergraduate  programs prepare our students to become leaders with the moral depth and intellectual intensity necessary to meet the challenges of a time of critical transition in society.

George Benson Christian University College provides Christian Education accredited by Higher Education Authority in Zambia. The University is a center of excellence established to provide quality Christian education to meet the needs of the community in Zambia and beyond.

I invite all of you who are interested in expanding your knowledge and enriching your careers to explore our school further. I hope that you will join our community of life-long learners.
