Theological College expanding


Good news on the expansion and renovation project of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church’s college.

The Holy Trinity Theological University College is putting up new building as a part of the university’s larger expansion project. The new building located next to the older campus in Arat Kilo would include an administrative building, a library, academic building, women’s and men’ residence, a center for faith and culture.

The College’s Assistant Dean, Tikabo Berhe said that the expansion project could allow for responding effectively to the growing needs of the university and fulfilling increased demand for training in the field accorded. He said that 70 percent of the construction of the building is completed. Though not indicated how much, additional costs than planned were incurred due to inflation on material.

With the expansion, the college can offer post gradates programs which in turn could reduce the cost of sending students abroad. There is a plan for significant increases in student enrollment and reorganizing departments for greater specialization.

Founded in 1942 by Emperor Haile Selassie I, the College is dedicated providing religious and secular education to clergy, as well as to those intending to become workers in and for, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

    Good to know what the Tewahedo church is doing to meet the 21 first century.But of course buildings are not enough.Manpower also should be thought of.

    The college leaves much to be desired, it very isn’t very effiecent and democrtaic.
    Yes, it needs expansion and would need to increase masssively the number of faculty.But most of all it need radical change of adminstration.Able people who could run the adminstartion, not those who fear that future gradutaes migh take thier postions.
