About Us

The kindness and generosity of people never cease to amaze the Divine Word University (DWU) Community. DWU is a testimony of people’s kindness and generosity. People who believe in what we believe, helping each other, sharing knowledge with others, having a positive impact upon other people’s lives even though those people may be culturally different and a hundred miles away.

Development and Self Reliance are two very important phrases at DWU mainly because the University is committed to its core values to provide quality of education to the people of PNG and the South Pacific. Some students receive financial aid through scholarship or bursary, and most receive financial assistance from the University itself. DWU endows 70% of tuition costs to most of its on-campus students. Without this supplementary endowment, the majority of students would not have adequate funding to attend the University. This endowment to all students comes from donations and fundraising activities, without which the University would be unable to operate.

The Department of Development and Self Reliance was established to enter into partnership with people of goodwill to enable the University to sustain its activities and assist in further developments of the University. The DDSR contributes to the quality of education, growth and expansion of the University in the following activities:

  • Seeking project funding;
  • Reducing cost in purchasing processes, routine maintenance and construction of new buildings;
  • Enhancing quality of services to staff and students; and
  • Generating income through the University’s companies and savings.

 

One of the objectives of the Department of Development and Self Reliance is to manage the University’s different commercial arms to reduce the operating costs of the University, enhance teaching, learning and research activities and to support and implement the University’s strategic goals and objectives.

DDSR assists staff of the University in developing and matching faculty strategic plans to potential funding sources. It provides guidance and resources to staff to request, report on and evaluate their projects to supporting organisations.

The DDSR is composed of the university’s commercial enterprises which greatly assist in the self-sustenance of the University. These enterprises are: Diwai Pacific Limited (DPL), Global Travel Centre (GTC), Alpha Network Solutions Limited (Alpha Nets), Diwai Mart Supermarket and Bakery, Diwai Mart Mechanical Workshop, Diwai Mart Building and Construction Limited, Diwai Restaurant and Catering Services, and Diwai Pharmaceuticals (DPhL).

The DDSR is also responsible for overseeing the management of the support services of the University. These support services include Diwai Post Office, DWU Rangers, DWU Student and Staff Dining Halls and DWU Maintenance and Landscaping department.

DSR at DWU is about working in collaboration with each other, promoting the Diwai Spirit
