"Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences (SHUATS) is a unique, technology-infused Institution that was founded by a true servant of the Lord Jesus Christ with a vision to make our country self reliant in food production. The Lord has guided him and he cradled this Institution at the confluence of three rivers in eastern part of the state. His Mission was to educate students in the fields of advancing technology to become innovators of the future. Since then, SHUATS's campus culture is devoted to continually nurturing a thriving learner community, where everyone's personal lives and professional aspirations revolve around technology and science. Our students feel at home and are supported spiritually, socially and culturally as well as academically during their time with us, which accomplishes our mission to be a student-centered university. We are, at our core, a Christian university. The character, example, and concerns of Jesus Christ are the standards that shape us and provide the course for our future. Because of this, an all-encompassing love for God and a corresponding love for people are at the heart of who we are.
Our roots go deep that provides the foundation for our picturesque campus, yet our vision for continued success is future-driven as we strive to offer the newest technologies and teaching methods that prepare our students for unbridled success and opportunities for lifelong learning.
Our students come from all walks, but they share a common expectation for their educational experience. When graduates leave our campus with degree in hand, armed with the professional skills to build successful communities and nurture families, we thank Lord Jesus Christ that we have succeeded in our academic mission. When our alumni supplement professional and academic skills with good citizenship and service qualities learned at SHUATS, we know that we have realized our mission to be a comprehensive university. At SHUATS, we cherish our ability to build a brighter future for our region, our state and beyond by calling upon past success. This distinction, moves our University beyond instruction in an ivory tower, firmly establishing us as an institution of innovation and inspiration. We have devoted all of our resources to create a vital academic environment where students are challenged to achieve, explore new and practice what they learn in real-world situations. This combination of research and application creates technically proficient scholars, who are equally at home in academia and the working world, and valued by both. SHUATS offers students a well-rounded education in a non-traditional setting, which is dedicated to scholastic excellence and technological innovation.
We have come a long way since our beginnings in 1910. As we set our sights on the future, using our recently adopted Strategic Plan as the compass by which we will chart our course, we are excited by the endless possibilities. We present this strategic plan with a heart of humility, realizing that God alone is sovereign. While we can survey, discuss, dream and plan, God controls the future. So, as we present our vision for the future of our University, we offer it to God with the words of our Lord Jesus: “Father…not (our) will, but yours be done” (Luke 22:42).
As always, we hope you will linger on our website, get to know us better, and join our progress.
“Haggai 'the Prophet, in chapter 2:7-9 (as given) could be appropriated for SHUATS,
“I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD Almighty. 'The silver is mine and the gold is mine,' declares the LORD Almighty. 'The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the LORD Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the LORD Almighty.”
May the good LORD bless our nation through this University."
