On ending three-day celebrations on 27 May, 2023, the celebrants were admonished to remain innovative with sustainable teaching, research, and outreach in the drive to Vision 2035.
The three-day 30th-anniversary merriment from Thursday 25 May through Saturday 27 May 2023 at the University of Buea’s main Campus in Molyko Buea, recounted the milestone growth, achievements, and local and global impact since it went operational in 1993.
