Lupane State University was established through an act of the Zimbabwe parliament in 2004 and opened its doors to 14 pioneer students in the faculty of Agricultural Sciences in August 2005.
The expansion of university education in Zimbabwe is part of government policy adopted at the onset of independence. In 1980 the government of Zimbabwe embarked on a major programme to extend educational access to the hitherto under served at both primary and secondary school levels. This exercise was primarily meant to address historical imbalances in the human resource base born out of the discriminatory educational system prevalent before independence.
