Chancellor’s Message

Welcome to KULAN University. KU is about both people and place.

Our students, faculty, alumni, administrators, and staff stand out for their promise to academic excellence, entrepreneurial spirit, diversity, vibrancy, and creative innovation.


Our world is currently experiencing a number of speedy changes that would have been unimaginable in the 20th century. At the same time, the pace of global environmental degradation accelerates, unprecedented major disasters and deadly infectious diseases wreak havoc across the world, and financial crises shake both national economies and individual lives to the very core. KULAN  University now needs to identify how best to respond to the demands of government and wider society while remaining true to its founding spirit.

Since its foundation in 2016, KULAN University has worked to cultivate academic freedom under a spirit of self-reliance and self-respect, and to open up new horizons in creative scholarly endeavor. The university has also sought to contribute to peaceful coexistence across the Somali Community.

Doing so requires the development of educational pathways offering a hierarchical arrangement of diverse disciplinary knowledge and facilitating a wide variety of learning choices. It takes time for students to realize their abilities to the fullest extent. I hope that we can provide a supportive learning environment in which students are not rushed into making decisions regarding their future, and instead can follow a positive process of trial and error that will enable them to be more confident in the futures that they eventually choose.

KULAN University has more than 20 professionally focused fields and many other education and research facilities. I will be doing my utmost to ensure that our goals are advanced across all these different branches of the university community.

Thank you for your interest in KULAN University. Whether you are already a student, a potential student, parent or potential parent, or local community member, I encourage you to further explore our website to learn more about the campus and to contact the department listed  if you have questions or would like additional information regarding a particular area.

I am deeply honored to serve as Chancellor of KULAN University, and am enthusiastic about working with the faculty and staff at this outstanding and diverse institution. We welcome you to participate in the endless opportunities at KULAN University, joining talented scholars, scientists, artists, writers and others who have been drawn from different countries to teach, perform, create, and study in a place where everyone belongs.

Thank you again for visiting our webpage. I look forward to seeing you in person on campus in the near future.

Fuad Abbi Ismail

The Chancellor
