Does the institutions’ vision and mission reflect much of the definition of Sustainable development?
They do not reflect much of sustainable development as more emphasis is placed ensuring Christian Values, however, the latter part of the mission do touch on higher quality teaching and learning. There is the need that the institution review its vision and mission to align them with sustainable development.
To what extent does your institution’s Vision and Mission statement reflect the objectives of ESD and the GAP?
In a way SANU’s mission do emphasize quality teaching and learning and the use of student-engaging methods of teaching, especially, inquiry-based interactive teaching.
