Great Zimbabwe University

The Great Zimbabwe University, then known as Masvingo State University, was established through the recommendations of the Chetsanga Report of August 1995 which proposed the devolution of Teachers’ and Technical Colleges into degree awarding institutions that would eventually become universities in their own right.

The University was launched in June 1999 as the Masvingo Degree Programme of the University of Zimbabwe with 120 students enrolled for a two-year In-Service Bachelor of Education Primary School degree. Professor Obert Edward Maravanyika was appointed as the first acting Pro Vice Chancellor. He was asked to produce a concept paper on the future of a university in Masvingo. Prof Maravanyika identified the university’s niche as the reading of arts and culture related studies in performing, visual, literary and digi/electronic arts.
