Message from the Dean

Prof Alinah SegobyeA new year, a new dawn and the opportunity to write anew, the story of our journey. I am very excited to welcome staff, students and the extended community to the Faculty of Human Sciences. I especially welcome new staff and students. As my first welcome message since assuming duty mid-2017, it does indeed feel like a fresh start. We join a vibrant, inspired, diverse and committed team of Faculty and staff. Nested among Science and Technology Faculties and programmes, our Faculty is the fulcrum on which our identity as NUST rests. It provides the raison d’être for the quality of graduates who leave our campuses for the world of work.
