The Executive Committee of the Inter University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) approved the request from Institute of Accountancy Arusha (IAA) to join IUCEA as new member after the institute met the minimum criteria. The admission was subsequently approved by IUCEA annual meeting, which is the general assembly of all IUCEA members. IAA becomes the 133rd member of IUCEA.
The IUCEA Act, 2009 states that any university, university college, and degree awarding institution may
apply for and get admitted to the IUCEA membership if it is properly incorporated in the EAC Partner State where it is operating and is pursuing objectives that are consistent with the functions of the Council.
IUCEA seeks to encourage and develop mutually beneficial collaboration between Member Universities and between them and Governments and other organizations, both public and private.
