OUR HISTORY

The University of The Gambia was established by an Act of the National Assembly of the Gambia in March 1999.  The enactment, which was a bold step to fulfill a long-standing desire of the people of The Gambia and to respond to several years of advocacy both within and outside the country for a university, ended years of indecision on the university question.

“The University of The Gambia shall be the powerhouse for the transformation of The Gambia through the creation, application, and transfer of knowledge.”
