Student Affairs

Student Affairs

Students choose HIPTEX because they want hands-on, real-world experience led by some of the world’s most innovative educators. They want a place that does not limit their potential with old rules but believes in their capacity to solve Africa’s most significant challenges in new ways. They want their time at a university to lead them to a job or even to launch a company or create social impact. They want to be part of a global network committed to their success. 

When you join HIPTEX, you don’t just join a college, you become a part of a community of lifelong learners. At HIPTEX, our learning extends beyond the classroom. Whether you’re rehearsing a play for your music, leading our soccer team on the field during a session, or even preparing to take center stage to host an event on campus, there’s an opportunity to develop yourself and have fun at the same time!

At the Student Life Center, our mission is to empower students to co-design a quality program centered around student support and development, to maintain a safe and well-run campus, and to provide spaces for engagement and positive culture building.

HIPTEX Student Life Departmental vision is to enable our students to embark on a holistic journey throughout which they are able to own their development and growth towards becoming well-rounded leaders at HIPTEX and beyond.
