Foundation University equips the students to identify and address critical social and global issues such as corruption, gender inequality, poverty and racial discrimination in a manner that contributes to a just and caring societies.

Foundation University is a growing online Christian university with a mission to advance knowledge, promote teaching and research, and help society discover ways to overcome its most pressing problems. Foundation University graduate programs and courses are developed to stimulate social transformation by encouraging the students to identify and address critical social and global issues such as corruption, gender inequality, poverty and racial discrimination in a manner that contributes to a just and caring societies.

At Foundation University, education is limited neither by time nor space. It is an ongoing and restless search, one to which this University is dedicated. Foundation University offers hybrid education, this means we adapt our programs to the circumstances and situations of our students. Thus our programs are based on distance, online, and class based education. We use  both traditional and non-traditional methods which allow the students to study in their own pace, place and timing with guidance and mentorship of our volunteer faculty.

Foundation University makes education accessible for those who have never had the opportunity to experience higher education. It is fair education, It is small. We don’t have campuses and big classrooms. Our classrooms are  churches, homes, offices, internet cafes, even prisons. We use everything we can to transfer knowledge to those who cannot afford it, but have dreams to pursue it and the courage to use it for a better world. At the moment we do not claim to be the greatest online university, we do not have sufficient resources yet, but we hope that one day we become the Red Cross of education. Thus, Foundation University is a movement to promote self-education, self-mobilization around the world and justice in higher education: fair and equal distribution of knowledge worldwide.

On behalf of the University I invite you to join us on this journey for change.

Samuel Lee, Ph.D.

Founder & President
