In keeping with our Catholic character and Ignatian identity, Hekima University College is committed to the formation and training of men and women in research and professional competence. This commitment is embodied in the following goals and objectives:
Hekima University College desires to train men and women “involved in disciplines which, although they may have no explicit Christian perspective, are nevertheless central to the way in which human beings understand themselves and the world around them” (General Congregation of the Society of Jesus [GC] 34, decree 6, no. 20, par. 2; cf. GC 34, d. 16, no. 7, par. 2). The graduates of our theological, spiritual, intellectual, and professional training program will be men and women of faith ardently “engaged in the challenge of building up a young and vibrant African Church, rooted in the richness of different cultures, creating new bonds of solidarity among peoples, and struggling to overcome the global forces that tend to marginalize the whole continent” (GC 34, d. 2, no. 2, par. 2). Hekima University College, in view of the objectives of its founding, hopes to introduce some other programs that will respond to the needs of the Church in the region.
