The Synod of University of Livingstonia under the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), has experienced rapid expansion since the establishment of Livingstonia Mission by Dr. Robert Laws in 1875. The station was founded in honor of Dr. David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary, educator and physician who opened up Africa by exposing slave trade and imploring others to bring Christianity, commerce and civilization to this undeveloped land.
From University of Livingstonia Mission, more than 500 primary schools and five large secondary schools have been established in Northern Malawi. Working with the government, the CCAP currently responds to approximately 40% of the educational needs of the country. The Synod of Livingstonia is highly respected for its achievements in education and commitment to advancing Malawi.
The University of Livingstonia headquarters is located at Livingstonia along with Livingstonia Technical College and the College of Education which opened 27 August 2003. Ekwendeni houses three colleges including the College of Commerce, Ekwendeni College of Nursing and the Livingstonia Theological College.
The University of Livingstonia, through excellence in teaching, research and learning environment, shall educate and inspire students to become principled leaders who will transform society for the glory of God.
