Message of College Dean

Ethiopia is a home of people with different cultures, languages and religions. In another word, Ethiopia is multilingual and multicultural country having about 89 nations, nationalities and people. State or a country having nations with diversified cultures and religions to stand as a strong and developed country requires unity and peace among its citizens. Unity, peaceful co-existence and harmony can be developed and sustained by cultural and emotional unity. History has taught us the ups and downs of Ethiopia in unity and internal conflicts respectively. The present generation should learn from the past; build better Ethiopia which is equal for its all citizens. This great goal can be only achieved by youths with healthy and rational minds. Such youths also can only be shaped through education system. Having this the in mind, I, as dean of college of social science and humanities, am dedicated to contribute to country’s sustainable peace and development through striving and assuring quality of education, producing competent, ethical and well trained graduates who can be able to solve social, political and economic challenges the society is facing through applied science research in the field of Social Science and Humanities. Social Science and Humanities comprises various essential disciplines that can cultivate the morally and socially cultivated and who promote and entertain diversity of religion, language, and culture as well as politics with the frame of harmony, integration and unit of nation – Ethiopia.
