Mzuzu University Centre for Inclusive Education (MUCIE)
The centre is deliberately designed to engage in teaching, research and programming that aims to address the multiple elements of inclusion (Ex. reduced disparities, access, human rights, valued contribution, empowerment) and elements of exclusion (Ex. poverty, inequality, discrimination, barriers to access, and disability) that contribute to inequity/equity in Malawian society and the wider world.
Through active community engagement, promotion of transdisciplinary approaches to inclusive education and involvement of education and related professionals, the Mzuzu University Centre for Inclusive Education promises to offer a sustainable and culturally relevant approach to Inclusive Education.
