Tumaini University

Tumaini University Makumira (TUMA) was founded by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT) in 1996 under the name: Tumaini University. The establishment of the University follows the decision of the government of Tanzania to liberalize the education sector and subsequent enactment of the Education (Amendment) Act No. 10 of 1995. The University is recognized by the Higher Education Accreditation Council.

The campus of the then Lutheran Theological College Makumira (LTCM) has now become the main campus of Tumaini University Makumira. For further information visit: http://www.makumira.ac.tz/.
