On behalf of the entire faculty and board of directors of DURA INSTITUTE OF DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT STUDIES (DIDAMS), Sierra Leone and United Kingdom, it gives me great pleasure to introduce our college to you. The college’s internationally based effective teaching and research faculties is continuing to develop a broad spectrum of academic disciplines that focus on career-building, professional development, continuing personal development, human capacity building, skills development, people empowerment and adult literacy. One distinguished characteristic of our institution is that we are passionate about making education free or affordable at the barest minimum. If you choose us, I believe, our collaborative efforts, which involve working in partnership with other institutions or external faculties, will translate in the broader sense, to help address and find solutions to most of the developmental challenges confronting Sierra Leone. Our library of multidisciplinary professional courses and programmes, delivered via in-class, instructor-facilitated distance learning and online, span both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
