Dean’s Welcome Note

 

The Simon Muzenda School of Arts, Culture and Heritage Studies derives its inspiration from the late Vice President of Zimbabwe Cde Simon Muzenda who was named Son of the soil due to his deep rootedness in Culture and Heritage (Unhu/Ubuntu) as it is termed in Shona and Ndebele Dialects. It is these values that the School holds highly. Apart from that it is pertinent to also know that one of Great Zimbabwe University’s niche areas is Arts, Culture and Heritage Studies.
