Prof Muzvidziwa said the record number of graduates was as a result of the institution’s multi-campus strategy, a first for any university in Zimbabwe.

He said the idea of a multi-campus approach was in line with his vision of leaving no one and no place behind, even in academic emancipation.

Muzvidziwa said:

This exceptionally high number of graduates is the outcome of our celebrated multi-campus strategy.

These graduates who converged here today are products of the Harare campus, Zvishavane campus, Bulawayo Learning Centre and the Gweru main campus.

MSU has presence in Gweru, Harare, Zvishavane, Bulawayo and soon, Kwekwe.
