Signing of Framework of Reference (FOR) between CUEA and ASEC

African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC)

The partnership between CUEA and ASEC seeks to empower African Nuns to develop creative and innovative skills sets through higher education, so that they can efficiently serve the society.

On January 20, 2014, the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) partnered with Marywood University to support the Higher Education for Sisters in Africa (HESA) program in East Africa through the signing of a Framework of Reference (FOR). Sisters complete one full year via online distance learning delivered by Marywood University and transfer to CUEA to complete their degrees.
