The Riara Story
The Riara University was born out of a sincere desire to provide a holistic approach in higher education. It is a logical continuation of our commitment, dating back to 1974, to ensure education and development of the whole child, learner and person. Ours is a concept that goes beyond the classroom, syllabus-based learning, and reaches out to provide stimulation and motivation for self-development and capacity for life-long education.
The process of education from kindergarten through primary and secondary and now university flows like that of the perennial Riara River: forever challenging, forever nourishing, forever fulfilling. Each level of the Riara experience then becomes a fountain, springing from fertile ground, showering all those it reaches; and who in turn infect others with enthusiasm, courage and God given brilliance, continually refined by the ever-flowing Riara River.
