Many worthy things in life begin with a dream.
Pacific Adventist University began with a dream. The leaders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South Pacific dreamed about a place where teachers, nurses, ministers and other professionals may be educated for the service of God and society. When the property in Fourteen Mile, west of Port Moresby, was bought in 1977, the dream began to come true. The vision and drive of the pioneers to attend the urgent need of providing tertiary education for the Pacific country islands led to the building of classrooms, library, dormitories, dining hall, and a number of other buildings. The generous Hand of God was always there to supply and to guide.
More than 33 years have passed since Pacific Adventist University opened its doors in 1984, and the original dream continues to drive the activities of the university. PAU’s dream became a mission: To prepare graduates who are equipped and willing to serve their community, their country, their church and their God. Our dream and mission is to help you become the best you can be for the best of others.
I am sure you have your dreams. Either as a prospective student, faculty or staff member, you may be dreaming of a place where you can be equipped or help equip others in the service of God and society. If that is your dream, then PAU is your place. You can observe in the history of this institution the way God has led and made miracles in so many people. One of those can be you. Come and see how you too can be educated to serve.
Welcome to PAU!
