Tanzania: Shein - Graduates Should Bring About Change

STATE University of Zanzibar (SUZA) has been urged to ensure that the research it conducts, improved curriculum, and teachings contribute towards national programmes.

The call was made by president Ali Mohammed Shein at the university's ninth graduation.

"The university's contribution to the nation should be to produce graduates who will make a change in society," Shein said after conferring diplomas and degree certificates on about 764 graduates at a colourful ceremony attended by academicians, politicians, students, and leaders.

Shein stressed that university education will only be useful if graduates contribute towards national development including poverty eradication (MKUZA II), the well-being of the people, achieving millennium development (MDG) goals, vision 2020, and the CCM manifesto.

He commended SUZA's administration for the ongoing effort to expand the university by introducing more faculties. Shein encouraged graduates to be innovative and serious entrepreneurs.

Guests were informed that the university is working hard to develop core values which include: embracing and driving change; team work; openness and honesty; freedom of thought and expression; patriotism and more.
