COLLEGE OF SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT

Higher Education was primarily developed with theology as the queen of the sciences whereby students first studied theology and thereafter any other discipline. Almost all universities were Christian with the study of God providing the necessary equilibrium for personal and professional equilibrium. The original vision was lost through secularization and specializations of the faculties as we know them now where theology is at the periphery of university academic agenda. The results are telling as the attained sophistication and advancements have not always brought about the humanization of life. In some cases, although not out rightly admitted to, institutions of higher learning have simply been ineffective in producing disruptive technologies and innovative agents. Paradoxically, notable success stories have come from dropouts!

The College of Sustainable Transformation and Development (COSTrAD) represents a novel idea of preparing students in situ in order to maximize the direct transference of learned lessons into real life situations. With an emphasis on the eight spheres of influence in society, the rationale is that if champions / transformational leaders are produced in a sustainable fashion to spearhead these sectors, then the coveted transformation and development will be inevitable. The modular approach allows students to disrupt their lives minimally and at the same time to bring from across the world experts in the stated fields to facilitate the learning experience and to supervise research projects. In so doing, a multi-disciplinary learning environment is achieved, the interchange between students of various backgrounds is equally realized in creating an enriching environment for personal input and advancement.
COSTrAD curriculum spans all subjects taught in all 8 institutes.

A certificate of attendance is given for satisfactory attendance and completion of the following each college and institute on offer.
