The history of  Dilla University can be traced back to the year 1996 with its  name, Dilla  college. The then Dilla  college constituted two faculties: Faculty of teacher Education and Faculty of Health Sciences. However, in 2001, the College was  included in the then newly emerging university- Debub university.  In 2004 Dilla College once again went through another phase and sprung in to a full-fleged university by the councils of ministers regulation No 129/04.   When Dilla University begun its activity as a college it had 12 departments with a total student population of less than 400, in a campus that was originally constructed for another purpose. Now the university is operating in 3 campuses with 13 schools and 34 programs with a student poupulation of more than 15000 in regular and continuing Education.

Dilla University to date has nearly 600 motivated young acadamic staff and more than 1100  administrative staff who are working vigoriously to materialize its mission and reach the horizon of excellence in the world of academics. The University has strong innovative learning methods and didactics, as it is used to be a Teacher’s University.
