A total of 1,888 students have been conferred with diplomas in their various fields of studies, during the first graduation ceremony for the School of Education Adult Education and Extension studies.
Speaking during the ceremony at UNZA Great East Campus, Vice Chancellor Prof. Stephen Simukanga said that the ceremony was a milestone in the history of UNZA and Zambia as a whole. Professor Simukanga described the event as the out come of the efforts of many men and women who had worked tirelessly to meet the needs of the Zambian people.
He said the ceremony should help to remove the myth among the people that extension studies are inferior to the full time programmes, adding that the programmes offered were acceptable as a proper function of UNZA.
The Vice Chancellor said the graduates have acquired genuine, bonafide and valid diploma qualifications of UNZA in their respective fields of study.

He said extension studies were part of the teaching avenues of UNZA just like distance and other programmes.
Professor Simukanga commended the graduates for the patience they exercised during the build up to the occasion and that he expected them to serve the county without fear or favour.
Meanwhile during the vote of thanks, Nguluwe Rabecca, a graduand expressed profound gratitude to the UNZA Administration for introducing adult education and extension studies.
She said UNZA was living up to its original policy of giving back to the ordinary people of Zambia, and that it had opened its doors to all Zambians regardless of age.
Nguluwe said the programme facilitated professional advancement to many Zambians who could not otherwise have had the opportunity to further their education up to degree level.
She further appealed to the people in charge of extension studies to extend them to other schools such as the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, so as to enable people to have a wide range of courses to choose from,
