Apostle Dr Walker said the university ought to look for new avenues of generating income and that he was hopeful his administration would resolve that challenge.

“We will develop new funding streams to maintain financial strength and stability and we will do this by embarking on result-oriented fund- raising programmes,” he promised.

Apostle Dr Walker added that the PUC would not lose focus of its core values and would ensure that the courses run by the university were geared towards equipping its graduates with skills and knowledge required for the job market.

He said there was the need to forge strong collaboration between the school and its stakeholders in order to build a much stronger brand name, and was also quick to add that the university would not rest on its oars and would continuously strive to achieve more.
