CATUC Academic Excellence Receives Public Recognition


It is an indubitable fact that one of the hallmarks of Catholic schools the world over is their academic excellence. When the Bishops of the Ecclesiastical Province of Bamenda founded the Catholic University of Cameroon (CATUC) in 2010, it was to continue at the tertiary level the outstanding work which Catholic schools have been doing from Nursery through Primary to Secondary schools.

Barely seven years later, CATUC is distinguishing herself as an academic institution of outstanding quality. It is not just those of us at CATUC repeating slogans about academic and professional excellence as others have been doing; it is the community recognizing that CATUC stands head and shoulders above her peers, even those who have been in the business long before CATUC was conceived.

Through a year-long live radio programme  where listeners called in, nominated
an d voted the best institutions and personalities in various domains, Ndefcam Radio listeners in the Northwest Region voted the Catholic University of Cameroon (CATUC), Bamenda as the Best Private Professional Higher Training Institution in the Northwest Region for 2017.
The Awards ceremony took place in Ayaba Hotel on the 22nd of December 2017 and highlighted excellence in the areas of business, politics, the civil society, vocational training, health, education, etc. It is worth noting that Ndefcam Radio has a huge audience in the Region and, because it also does online streaming, has an audience that extends far beyond the Region.

Mr. Paul Itor, the Quality Assurance Officer for CATUC, was on hand to receive the award. As the officer responsible for assuring all-round quality in all that CATUC does, he thinks that this is only the beginning of greater things to come for CATUC!
