Our Core Commitments:
PAC University Objectives:
Specifically, we desire to develop in each student:
Over the years, PAC University has consistently re-written its story by scaling the heights of hard work, team spirit, resilience, and excellence. We are driven by the quest to be better today than we were yesterday, with our confidence being drawn from the revelation that God's grace is sufficient for us. As a community of faith, God has always been at the center of everything we do, with His word being our core anchor.
PAC University enjoys great diversity on many fronts including cultures, races, traditions, and nationalities. This element has been one of the greatest areas of our strength that has widely exposed our staff and students to a rich worldview that makes us better people with a global outlook of things. Here, we appreciate and respect each other regardless of our personalities, knowing too well that we are all called by God's name.
Our core business at PAC University is to offer Quality Education to our students and imparting them with godly values and practical skills that will adequately prepare them to serve effectively. We do this by integrating theoretical learning with practical job skills through engaging qualified industry experts who have relevant experience as part of our faculty. To further demonstrate our commitment to quality education, we have ensured that all our Graduate and Undergraduate academic programs are approved by the Commission for University Education (CUE).
Imbued with a Christian worldview and a philosophy of education that reflects that perspective, we offer our students an enhanced, unique, and quality university education. When you join PAC University, you become part of a growing community that is making the world better, all to God's glory.
History was made in September 1978 when the first classes were held in what was known then as Pan Africa Christian College and we have been making history ever since.
Originally founded as a Bible College, the University was built on the site of the former Lumumba Institute (Current Thika Road Campus), along Lumumba Drive, Roysambu.
With the changes in the Higher Education sector in Kenya, the College grew to a point where it was Chartered as a Private University by President Mwai Kibaki in February 2008. With the Charter came the change in name to Pan Africa Christian (PAC) University.
Over the years, PAC University has grown in terms of the academic offerings, with over thirty-five (35) courses currently on offer. Important to note is that all our graduate and undergraduate courses are approved by the Commission for University Education (CUE).
The university is owned and managed by robust partnership of three stakeholders: Christ Is The Answer Ministries (CITAM), the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC), and the Pentecostal Assemblies of God Kenya (PAG).
