PRESS RELEASE – September 29, 2016

NEW AMERICAN INSTITUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION TO OPEN IN MAURITIUS

Port Louis, Mauritius, September 29, 2016 – In partnership with American universities, a new higher education institution, The American Campus, will begin classes in January 2017 in Ebene, Cybercity, Mauritius.

Headed by a group of U.S. educators and administrators with vast and varied experience in higher education in the U.S. and around the globe, The American Campus will offer a certificate of English as a Second Language (ESL) in partnership with Sacred Heart University, located in Connecticut, USA. Bachelor degrees in Agribusiness and International Agribusiness, in partnership with Utah State University in Utah, USA, will begin before May 2017.

Students enrolled at The American Campus will study the same curriculum as students attending US university partners, allowing for intellectual exchanges with students from around the globe and access to library resources, alumni networks, and graduate education opportunities.

“I’m a firm believer that the best thing we can do for developing areas of the world is to give people access to education in programs that prepare people to work,” Spalding Jugganaikloo, a native Mauritian and the president and founder of The American Campus, said. “Education brings economic development, peace and long-term opportunities. Our goal is to train future business and political leaders in the region.”

Jugganaikloo said although there are other universities in Mauritius, many people leave their homes to attend schools in the United States and Europe and then tend to stay there for employment. His goal has long been to make education accessible in Mauritius for the people there and from other Sub-Saharan African countries.

“We are very excited to be partnered with TAC in its genesis,” Carrie Wojenski, interim director of the English Language Institute at Sacred Heart University, stated. “Our ESL collaboration provides SHU and TAC students an enriching opportunity to connect in the classroom, learn from one another and engage in meaningful exchange.”

Tuition costs for the ESL program will be approximately $4,900 (Rs 173,558) for one year of instruction, and tuition costs for the bachelor degrees will be approximately $6,600 (Rs 233,772) per year, a substantial savings over tuition costs in the United States at equivalent universities.

The English Language Institute at Sacred Heart University has partnered with The American Campus (TAC) in Mauritius, Africa, to provide SHU’s online English as a Second Language (ESL) program to TAC’s students.

The American Campus is a new university founded by American educators and based on the American higher-education model. While its mission is to provide superior education that prepares students for the workforce, it describes its goals on its website as manifold: “To educate and strengthen Africa and Asia’s human capital to promote and sustain both continents’ role in the global economy; train students to be productive citizens and active participants in their country’s development; prepare our students for gainful employment; teach ethical values and good governance, and prepare them to be future leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs.”

The TAC further states on its website that it chose to partner with Sacred Heart because of SHU’s high-quality ESL programs. It also has partnered with Utah State University’s agribusiness and international agribusiness programs.

Carrie Wojenski, interim director of the English Language Institute, says this partnership offers TAC students ESL courses to increase their English language proficiency to prepare them to enroll in undergraduate and graduate studies at TAC.

“We are very excited to be partnered with TAC in its genesis,” Wojenski adds. “Our ESL collaboration provides SHU and TAC students an enriching opportunity to connect in the classroom, learn from one another and engage in meaningful exchange.”

The program is not credit-bearing; rather, students will receive a certificate of completion that prepares them for credit-bearing courses. The program comprises four levels, each containing four months of coursework, including presentations and activities in listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar.

Mauritius’ literacy rate is among the highest in the continent. It ranks first among Sub-Saharan African countries in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Index. In addition, the Heritage Foundation ranks Mauritius first in Sub-Saharan Africa in its Index of Economic Freedom.
