  • Increasing access, equity and participation in higher education; 
  • Exploring the potential of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to deliver teaching and learning in new and effective ways; 
  • Providing quality, relevant academic and professional programmes that are responsive to national needs; 
  • Engaging the wider community in Botswana to enable individuals and groups to realise their full potential through dialogue, activity and cooperation; 
  • Increasing research and scholarship at the University that underpins the realisation of Vision 2016 and realise the mission of advancing knowledge; 
  • Broadening the academic and cultural diversity of the University.
