Vision and Mission

The Vision of Nile University is dedication to community development through sound policies, provision of high quality educational & service resources as well as upholding multicultural values & heritage.

“Nile University is a private institution of higher learning, which draws on age-old traditions of higher education in the Sudan. The pioneering Khartoum University College & the University of Khartoum upheld those traditions for more than half a century. The ideals of integrity, excellence and relevance were high on their list. It is the Vision of Nile University to uphold these ideals as well as to pursue innovative goals both in direction and method.

The threshold of the twenty-first century is witnessing dynamic technological and socio-economic change. These developments exert new demands on the resources of existing and future institution of higher education, not only in numbers but also in the quality of education and training. It is the Vision of Nile University to contribute to national socio- economic development through promotion of services, education and manpower development.

Optimum employment of educational and professional manpower will require an attractive working environment and conditions of service. It is the Vision of Nile University to attract highly qualified personnel especially in the fields of Health Services, Business, and Information Technology both at undergraduate and graduate education”.
