St. Augustine University of Tanzania, a secular and private institution of Higher learning owned and managed by the Catholic Church, is dedicated to St. Augustine of Hippo (345-430 A.D) with the Motto “Building the City of God”


When the Catholic Bishops of Tanzania decided to extend the Church’s service to the provision of Higher Education they envisioned a training that would impart academic and professional skills, as well as inculcate values of civic and social learning, such as acquisition of national identity, cultural norms, political growth and responsible citizenship. Thus, the church’s vision is holistic development of a person and respect for Human Dignity.

St. Augustine University of Tanzania strives at:
  1. Being a centre of excellence by providing high quality Education, research, and public service.
  2. Promoting the pursuit and defense of truth with transparency and honesty, and service with competence and dedication.
  3. Developing a sense of care for personal and community property.
  4. A holistic development of the person by providing sound knowledge, higher analytical ability and commitment to generous service and respect to humankind.
Conscious of man’s orientation towards God, neighbors and fostering an ethical and services-oriented approach in its academic and professional training, St. Augustine University of Tanzania fulfills its goal by preparing persons well equipped to contribute to the ideals of social, economic and political development.
