To empower the nation with knowledge and skills by creating opportunities through affordable, open and flexible distance education for the promotion of a culture of life-long learning


To break all barriers inhibiting access to education through ODL and create Centre for Excellence


The philosophy of the Centre for Distance Learning and Continuing Education is to remove barriers to education to those whom for one reason or the other could not acquire it through the conventional university education system by expanding opportunities. This philosophy is guided by the realization that existing universities have challenges of capacity and ODL has been found to be a viable alternative.
