THE AMERICAN CAMPUS
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
