Perhaps the most significant transformation taking place at AKU is the planned establishment of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.

Once completed, this 1200 acre campus will be the principle campus of AKU in East Africa and will encompass undergraduate liberal arts and graduate programmes.

The establishment of this campus represents a major step towards becoming a comprehensive University.

In the classroom, the FAS liberal arts approach is meant to encourage students to engage in disciplined reflection and critical thinking about the region and its place in the global community; nurturing a new generation of leaders, open to fresh expression and new insight, able to energise others with the spirit of cooperation and positive change.
