The University of Buea was born in 1993 following wide-ranging university reforms in Cameroon. Conceived in the English-speaking tradition, the University of Buea seeks to foster the essence of that system, while situating itself within the larger bilingual and multicultural context of Cameroon. It is located in the historic town of Buea, former capital of German Kamerun, former capital of the federated State of West Cameroon and now the provincial capital of the South West Region of Cameroon. Although the University draws its students mainly from the English-speaking part of Cameroon, it also serves the other provinces of the country.

The mission of the University of Buea is to provide opportunities for quality education through teaching and research in an environment that is conducive to such pursuits and in ways that respond to market forces. The University is dedicated to the continuous quest for excellence, the promotion of moral and human values, and service to the community. Its teaching and research programmes emphasize relevance, encourage tolerance and promote creative, critical and independent thinking.

The University of Buea is dedicated to the provision of programmes of study and research of the highest standards. It also produces high quality graduates with skills to satisfy the ever increasing demand of the Cameroonian, African and international job markets. The academic staff hold advanced qualifications and several possess international reputations.

In view of its vision and aspiration of becoming a leading university in the quality and relevance of its teaching, research and services by 2015, the University of Buea is emphasizing sports, entrepreneurship and civics and ethics in its training programmes; and providing a healthy competitive atmosphere devoid of sex, racial and religious discrimination.

Interests: Gender-based violence
I am a Research Assistant at the University of Buea. Presently attached to the research project 'Youths and Political Participation in Cameroon' Throughout this program I will like to engage in discussions on the Strategies to combat various forms of gender-based violence, especially the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) in rural communities have so far not yielded significant results. A major constraint here is the 'silence' of victims. What is the most appropriate 'Complaint System' to break the vicious circle of 'silence' by victims in this matter? At the end of this program I hope have achieved the following;
i) acquire more knowledge about latest strategies to face the challenges of gender-based violence
(ii) learn from the experience of other course participants
(iii) Establish of professional networks with other course participants
