A memorable and historic 10th Graduation Ceremony of the Adventist University of Africa was held recently from the 18th to 20th June 2021 at the University’s Main Campus in Nairobi, Kenya. The ceremony was held in conjunction with the installation ceremony of Dr Vincent Richard Injety, the third Vice-Chancellor of the University.

The exuberant graduands were not inhibited with joy even as COVID-19 restrictions were enforced throughout the weekend-long ceremony. Although some of the graduands could not physically make it to Campus, they were able to follow the program virtually via Zoom and live streaming channels.
