University in Focus: Botswana College of Agriculture

BCA logoTransitioning from a College of Agriculture to an Agricultural University

The Botswana College of Agriculture is an Associate Institution of the University of Botswana established through Act of Parliament No. 9 of 1991. The Botswana College of Agriculture is in the process of transitioning to a fully fledged agricultural university to be called Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (BUAN). A Conference organised by BCA from 5-6th March 2015 at the Gaborone International Convention Centre, Grand Palm Hotel, Gaborone deliberated how to “Transform the College and Redefine Botswana Agriculture”. The Conference came at a time when the College has been approved by Government to transform into Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (BUAN). This conference set the stage where the College presented its vision with stakeholders and also provided benchmark Institutions a platform to share their experiences and best practices.
