Directorate of Research and Community Service


The Directorate of Research and Community Service of the University of Burao was established in 2009. The directorate considered research publication and community service as the two major target areas in which there were gaps, and different achievements were realized in these areas since then. With limited financial resources, the directorate conducted and coordinated several research projects which were useful for the society; besides, several community targeted projects were implemented. The UoB’s Directorate of Research and Community Service is determined to competently participate in the developmental activities that are taking place within the country. In this regard, the Directorate is keen to cooperate with governments and NGOs that are involved in these developmental projects on baseline, end line and other significant evaluations.
