FOSTrecognizes the importance of a strategic plan as a framework to guide development. Through strategic consultations, with both internal and external stakeholders, FOST has come up with a strategic plan as a document that gives direction for its planned activities across the next 5 years.


“A centre of Excellence in the Heart of Africa.”


“Training Science Graduates to solve community problems using technology for a prosperous community.”

FOST shares and will work in consort with the five core values that do inform and direct her work. These are:

CHRIST-CENTREDNESS. This is about acknowledging the lordship of Christ in all areas of life and work. Both corporately and individually we seek to know and obey God’s will in every aspect of university life, and we challenge ingrained secular thinking in education.

DILIGENCE. This is about being careful in whatever we do, conscientious work and doing our best at all times to complete work to a high standard, on time and persist when faced with difficulties because our work is a service to Lord Jesus Christ. Col 3:22-25.

INTEGRITY. We hold to sound moral character, as defined by biblical principles of being one person both in public and in private, upholding honesty and transparency, truthful in speech by keeping promises (including time management), being faithful in personal relationships and exercising humility and repentance when we fail.

SERVANTHOOD. We are convinced that all people bear the image of God, therefore we commit to love them as we love ourselves, to model servant leadership, use our positions of influence to build up others rather than as an opportunities for personal power, status or wealth.

STEWARDSHIP. This is about exercising faithful Management of oneself, our relationship and tangible resources. These are given to us in trust, not to be used selfishly, but for God’s glory. Therefore we embrace responsible godly living, and promote godliness in relationships with other people. Thus meaning, using the resources solely for the purpose for which they are given and give accurate and timely accountability.
