Meridian Global University (MGU) is a professional institution founded with the goal of bridging the gap in the educational system in Cameroon and beyond by providing a demanding, yet supportive educational experience. MGU challenges its students to exceed their highest ambitions, foster the mature development of values and deepen a desire to help shape the world. We intend to nurture graduates who are highly motivated individuals, with the ambition and ability to create their own jobs or to achieve, succeed, and make a lasting impact in their careers and communities.
MGU seeks to nurture globally competent professionals capable of addressing local and international needs. Our students are provided with a rigorous, intense education that both disciplines and expands the mind. Students develop a lifelong desire to learn and grow while also acquiring skills and knowledge necessary for success in their professional lives. At the heart of this education is the concept of public service and civic engagement, which instils into the students, the notion of community service and reliance through practical, teaching and research. There is institutional frameworks including curriculum design, encouragement, reward and recognition of innovation and excellence in community service and/or solutions to local needs. We also welcome inclusive and collaborative community activities by Community Based Organizations and other partners.
It is our belief that, being part of a community, the community should benefit first from our activities and products.We therefore indulge our students in discipline-related community service that is part of their academic training and professional build-up. Mandatorily, students in each program spend a semester in the community, designing a project that solves a local need with the help of their advisors. An example of such activities is the current partnership between the Department of Health Sciences and Access Care Foundation wherein, students from the Department spent their final semester at Access Care Clinic providing health education, family planning and homecare services to persons in remote areas.
Another example is the University’s strive to uphold the right to education which is under threat in the crisis-hit English speaking Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon. To grapple with school boycott which has seen the education of more than 600,000 students disrupted for more than three years now, the Department of Education and IT developed distant learning and online packages for safe delivery of lectures at homes.
