University College (CUC) is a non-profit educational
initiative of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), to
provide Christian-based tertiary education for the expansion
of God's Kingdom.
It has its origins in a short-term pastoral training institute,
which was started in 1988 by ICGC. It was later incorporated
in June 1991 under the name Central Bible College. The name
was later changed to Central Christian College in 1993. The
College later upgraded its programmes to the baccalaureate level.
In line with our national aspirations, the College expanded
its programme to include an integrated and practice-oriented
business school (the School of Business Management and Administration, now Central Business School).
To reflect its new status as a liberal arts university, the
name was changed to Central University College in 1997
