DU BIRIEF HISTORY

The history of Dilla University is traced back to the year 1996 with its name, Dilla College of Teachers’ Education and Health Sciences. The then Dilla College constituted two faculties Faculty of Teachers’ Education and Faculty of Health Sciences.

However, in 2001, the College was included in the then newly emerging University – DebubUniversity. When Dilla College began its function as a college, it had 12 departmentswith total student population of less than 400 in a campus that was originally constructed for another purpose.

In 2006 Dilla College once again went through another phase and sprung into a full-fl edged University by the Council of Ministers Regulation No. 129/06.

Now the university is operating in three campuses; the fourth is underway, with 6 colleges, 2 institutes and 3 schools which offer more than 47 undergraduate and 24 post-graduate /masters/ programs and 1 PhD program with student population of more than 31,000 in regular and continuing education programs.Read More...
