Ethiopian Catholic University
The Ethiopian Catholic University of St. Thomas Aquinas “ECUSTA” managed by the LA SALLE Congregation seeks to become a reputable international training institution.
Recognizing the need for strong and visionary African leadership, the former Ethiopian Prime Minister, Sir Hon. Meles Zenawi, in 1997 asked Pope St. John Paul II to establish a Catholic University in Ethiopia to address the acute educational needs throughout the country. The University was focusing mainly on health and medical services. The Ethiopian Catholic University (ECU) was conceived not only as a place to advance academic insight. But also, to equip compassionate individuals with practical leadership and expert skills permitting them to service their country.
