As part of the University’s partnership with Engineering Ministries International, an international team of
engineers and architects spent 10 days in Juba and Rokon. They carried out a site survey of the land in
Rokon and are working on a site master plan and an architectural program of spaces for all the buildings on
the campus. A detailed phased plan and visualisation of the campus will be ready this summer. This is a
major step that will enable the Episcopal University to begin fundraising and construction on the site.
Meanwhile, the small campus in central Juba has been renamed the Bishop Gwynne Campus of the Episcopal University. This signals the formal unification of Bishop Gwynne College – now the Bishop Gwynne School of Theology – with the university.
Oct. 03, 2021: The passing of the Bishop of Rokon, Francis Loyo Mori
We are so sad to hear about the death of the Bishop of Rokon, Francis Loyo Mori, after a long illness. Bishop Francis was an enthusiastic and staunch supporter of TEU ever since he took part in the initial feasibility study in 2011. He was instrumental in enabling TEU to acquire the central campus site outside Rokon. The photo shows Bishop Francis speaking at the laying of the TEU foundation stone in December 2019 on the Rokon site. We give thanks to God for Bishop Francis who has served the church and people of South Sudan so faithfully through much hardship and suffering. Our prayers are with his family and the people of Rokon in this time of loss.

Sept. 11, 2021: ECSSSUP AGM
The second AGM was held on 11 September 2021. Watch the presentation and the video! We were especially glad to interview Vicky Aluur, Finance Manager of TEU and James Lule, Principal of Kajo Keji Christian College as well as Joseph Bilal, the Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor of TEU. You can also access the minutes of the meeting.
Sept. 2021: New cars!
TEU’s new cars have arrived! Some months ago the fuel tank of the second hand car TEU had been using fell off on the road to Rokon. Thanks to an amazing anonymous donation, as well as local fundraising TEU has just acquired two new cars! They are vital for transporting staff and engineers to the Rokon site as work begins in earnest.
