ACHIEVEMENT • SUCCESS • CONFIDENCE • PERSEVERANCE
The American Campus (TAC) is a new institution of higher education designed to offer a high quality, cost-effective American education to Mauritian students and others from across Africa and Asia. It was founded by a broad coalition of U.S. educators with substantial and varied experience, and is based on the American model of active and applied academic learning.
TAC provides a superior educational experience to nurture students’ personal and career goals and to qualify them at graduation for immediate entry into the workplace, and launch them on a significant track in their chosen career. We achieve this by being well-informed about trends and opportunities in the regional job markets, and by collaborating with American university partners to offer meaningful programs on campus. Besides academic experience, students at TAC gain a supporting network of mentors, and build relationships with potential employers through internships, community service learning and applied research.
The American Campus’ (TAC) goals are to:
EDUCATE and strengthen Africa and Asia’s citizens to promote and sustain both continents’ roles in the global economy
NURTURE students’ self-identity and passion for their future
TRAIN students to be productive and active participants in their country’s development
TEACH ethical principles and good governance, and prepare students to be future leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs
PREPARE students for gainful employment in a field they value
We achieve these goals by providing a broad-based holistic university education that focuses on the following areas:
Personal Development. Each student will begin a life-long process of self-discovery, learn how to break-through self-imposed limitations and assemble tools for success. Students will set goals and gain the skills and confidence to reach their own potential.
Life Skills. Students will learn skills that will help them be better students, prepare for the workplace and be productive citizens, leaders and innovators. TAC will offer student training in study skills, critical reasoning, entrepreneurship, time management, conflict resolution, problem solving, and ethical principles.
Professional Training. Qualify students at graduation for immediate entry into the workplace, and launch them on a significant track in their chosen career. Students will complete a university program and earn a certification or degree from an accredited, internationally recognized U.S. university. Students may earn a Certificate; an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Science degree; a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree, or a Master degree that will lead to a successful profession.
