Divine Word to promote academic leadership to create quality education


THE Divine Word University and the National Catholic Education Commission are expected to sign an agreement to
improve the quality of its education service.
University president Professor Cecilia Nembou said this during the launching of the commission’s five-year strategic plan
(2017-2021) in Port Moresby yesterday.
The plan calls for a professional approach to its teacher education training focusing on
education, leadership and management.
“We have what it takes to provide the academic leadership to make this plan work,” Nembou said.
“I want to assure the commission and the Catholic Bishop Conference that on August 21, 1996, the National Executive Council passed a resolution to transform the Divine Word Institute into a private Catholic University. So we have no problems. And as partner, we are the only Catholic university in Papua New Guinea.”
