National University of Lesotho
The origins of the National University of Lesotho go back to April 8, 1945, when a Catholic University College was founded at Roma by the Roman Catholic Hierarchy of Southern Africa. The decision to establish the National University of Lesotho on, the Lesotho (Roma) campus site of the former U.B.L.S. was taken on October 20, 1975. Today the National University of Lesotho is a growing institution striving to meet the needs of the nation, through producing competent and skilled graduates who can easily take up the call to assist in the development of Lesotho.
What does PASCAL do with NUL?
NUL co-ordinates the PURE project being undertaken by PASCAL in Lesotho.
Pascal supports the Implementing the Third Mission of Universities in Africa (ITMUA) project funded through the African Challenge Fund co-ordinated by NUL, and also involving the University of Botswana, the University of Calabar and the University of Malawi.
The PURE project has provided NUL with an incentive to do work that it was officially committed to. The PURE involvement has given interested academics the mandate to work across the university in a way that would not have otherwise been possible.
