UNITED GRADUATE COLLEGE AND SEMINARY INTERNATIONAL ESTABLISHES NEW EDUCATION MODEL

Dr. Tom Musilli, Bishop Arthur Kitonga, Dr. Clyde Rivers, Dr. Nathan Kahara 

United Graduate College and Seminary International is working hard to bring a new model of education worldwide. The education model is focused on a Skill and Philosophy Education. Education without practical engagement is not making our world a better place. At UGCSI we are dedicated to a better way. Professor Clyde Rivers, Chief Chancellor of UGCSI commented, “Our international leadership is graced with men like Dr. Tom Musilli, Founder and Executive Director of Computers for Schools Kenya who has rebuilt and distributed over 350,000 computers into Africa. Bishop Arthur Kitonga, Overseer of over 23,000 churches and Dr. Nathan Kahara, Former President of the Red Cross in Kenya. With these brilliant minds collaborating UGCSI is excited about developing this new education model.”

At a meeting of the International Leadership Team in Kenya early in 2016, it was decided the Culture of Honor has played a large role in changing the mindset of education through our online Christian education institution. Our Honorary Doctorate Degree has been given to top individuals in the world. Our philosophy is that those that have gained their education by their life’s work and practical application are as skilled as those that have obtained their education through an education system. The United Graduate College and Seminary International African Leadership Team has discovered something very special. The individuals that have received a UGCSI Honorary Degree are at the top of their industries. This observation has caused us to decide to create a Skills Education Model that is based on practical experience. Turning this model into non-academic academia allows this Skills Education Model and Philosophy to redevelop the nations of the world with education that is proven to work for the betterment of people.

United Graduate College and Seminary International is in over 50 nations, has over 100,000 graduates and was founded in 1982 by Dr. Martin Wisor. It is a private International Christian College and Seminary. United Graduate College and Seminary International offers ministry training and ministry degrees through online Internet programs. We provide tools for students around the world seeking a practical Biblical education. Our students are located around the globe and represent many different cultures and people groups.
