Summary of the Faculty
The Faculty of Applied Social Sciences at Zimbabwe Open University is committed to high-quality undergraduate and graduate instruction across the social sciences. We pride ourselves in providing students with the opportunity to engage in hands-on educational experiences and apply academic concepts, strategies, and techniques to contemporary, real-world issues. Guided by the University’s 2020-2023 Strategic Plan, we have centred our efforts on innovative technology enabled teaching and learning, through Education 5.0 expanding the volume and quality of high impact research, community service, innovation and industrialisation. The Faculty recognises that central to the university achieving its ambitions is the capability and capacity of its workforce. The Faculty therefore is committed to developing staff, building capacity and giving individuals the necessary support to deliver the university’s strategic priorities. The proffered vision and plan are designed to transform the Faculty into a hub for unsurpassed student-centred teaching and learning; outstanding research and innovative work that will serve communities towards positive social change. As a Faculty our central concern is to recruit versatile academics that suit our diverse programme range.
