Tumaini University, founded by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania
(ELCT), currently Tumaini University Makumira consists of five constituent
Colleges: Iringa University College, Kilimanjaro
University Makumira Dar es Salaam College, Stefano Moshi Memorial University
College and the Sebastian Kolowa University College
TUMADARCo, a new acquisition of Tumaini University Makumira , is currently
situated adjacent to Kinondoni Lutheran Church. It also occupies some of the
of the African Evangelistic Enterprises (AEE), which are only a stone throw
away from the church. It also has a campus at the Kurasini Lutheran Congregation
in Dar es Salaam. Another at Mikocheni and head office in Mwenge on the Sam
Nujoma Road leading to Cocacola plant.
The origins of TUMADARCo are embedded in the then Waldorf College Tanzania
(WCT) established in 1997 as a branch and later a college of Waldorf College,
City in Iowa, USA. WCT was a liberal arts college offering, by way of modules,
two years of study in Dar es Salaam and another two years in a USA college
to complete the Bachelor of Arts degrees in Business Administration and Management.
Students had to transfer to USA with between 54 and 60 credits.
However, sometime in 2001, the authorities of WCT thought a partnership with
Tumaini University would be to its advantage. Consequently, discussions opened
between the relevant authorities through their various organs, and eventually
in April 2003, TUDARCo was born as a constituent college of Tumaini University,
joining its three sisters.
TUMADARCo offers both undergraduate, diploma, certificates programmes on full-time
as well as part time basis during the day and evening. All TUMADARCO academic
on a semester basis.
