LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 2 of 63

FOREWORD

The Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea Project Feasibility Report gives a brief overview of the
planning and management development issues that have been tasked to a Committee appointed to
consider and report on the feasibility of establishing a new university at Lae City, Morobe Province
Papua New Guinea. The succeeding pages of the Committees Report seek to address all relevant issues
in the broadest context possible impacted by time and resource constraints.

Due to the topography of Papua New Guinea, provision of university education closer to a populated
area such as the Momase region where the City of Lae is situated should prove to be a sound long term
investment.

The Lutheran Churches of Papua New Guinea have been traditional development partners in caring and
sharing educational and other social service deliveries in this country .The Churches share the common
belief that education is an investment and a foundation for national development. In the wider context,
investment in University education would enable Papua New Guinea to become a more literate,
educated, skilled and self-reliant Christian nation fully able to confront the challenges of an ever
changing world.

Essential infrastructure and other assets owned by the Lutheran Churches at Lae are being contributed
by them strategically by a merger of Balob Teachers College and Martin Luther Seminary to establish
the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea. Together with an Australian University development
partner it is intended that the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea will ensure provision of quality
university education that not only meets the unique needs of Papua New Guinea but provide
qualifications that receive international accreditation

The Government and other potential partners are therefore invited to seriously consider the strategic
planning and development proposals presented by the Committee’s Report.

LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 5 of 63

PART I – BACKGROUND
INTRODUCTION

General
It is proposed that a University to be known as “The Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea” be
established at Lae, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea.

The new University will be established at the site of the existing educational institutions of Martin
Luther Seminary (MLS) and Balob Teachers College (BTC). These institutions operate from an area in
excess of 70 hectare site along Busu Road Lae, the title for which is held by the Lutheran Church under
a 99 year lease for mission purposes. The site is a kilometer to the North of Lae City Centre, which is
the capital of Morobe Province.

Funding Summary

The University will be established by upgrading and expanding the existing facilities of MLS and BTC.
The initial funding assessment indicates:

1. Capital expenditure of K22 million to construct new facilities and upgrade existing facilities and
provide essential equipment. This capital expenditure will be incurred over several years with
initial expenditure mainly to upgrade and equip existing facilities and to build some
accommodation for the increased student numbers.

2. Annual operational expenditure of K11 million (2006) will be met by government funding and
student fees. The ultimate aim is to make the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea
financially viable with reducing reliance on government funding. See Part IV – Funding. In the
first year (2006) it is proposed that the National Government funding be K 6 million with this
amount reducing by 10% each year as the increased student capacity is created and student tuition
fees replace government funding.

The University project has the support of both the National Ministers for Education and Higher
Education as well as the Morobe Provincial Government and private industry. The project is the concept
of the Lutheran Churches in Papua New Guinea and has the support of the international Lutheran
Community. The project was conceived in response to the urgent need to improve the primary and
secondary school educational infrastructure in Papua New Guinea. The Lutheran Churches of Papua
New Guinea are responsible for their establishment and ongoing existence. BTC has produced many
5

LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 6 of 63

good school teachers. The Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea will build on the BTC knowledge
and experience and will provide degrees in Education for the next generation of primary and secondary
school teachers for Papua New Guinea. These teachers will be equipped with best the practice
knowledge, skills and values as a result of:

1. the research undertaken by the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea into the education
environment in Papua New Guinea and which research will build on the wealth of knowledge
acquired by BTC,

2. the partnership with an established Australian University, and

3. continuing review of and improvements to the course and course materials for the degrees in
Education.

An Australian University will “partner” the establishment and ongoing academic and administration
functions of the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea. This will assist in creating a depth of
knowledge of the requisite professional knowledge, skills and values for primary and secondary school
teachers in Papua New Guinea and how best to impart those qualities to the University graduates.
Another benefit of the partnership is international accreditation for all degrees and qualifications
awarded by the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea. The University graduates will be equipped
to contribute much to the society of Papua New Guinea both as professional teachers and as valuable
members of their local community.

Faculties

Once the Faculty of Education is established, other commercial and science degrees will be introduced.

The Faculty of Religious Studies will build on the knowledge and resources of the MLS and will
continue to offer degree courses in religious studies.

A Trade School will also be established as soon as possible. Again its graduates will receive
international accreditation for any trade qualifications awarded by the Lutheran University of Papua
New Guinea.

The Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea Education Fund

It is also proposed that, in conjunction with the establishment of the University, a the Lutheran
University of Papua New Guinea Education Fund be set up to provide student loans, scholarships and
research funding. It is proposed that contributions to the Fund will be tax deductible. The the Lutheran
University of Papua New Guinea Education Fund will be created by statute “the Lutheran University of

27/03/2008 3:16 PM3:16 PM


LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 7 of 63

Papua New Guinea Act”, that will also establish the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea and will
also provide for administration and related purposes.

The academic and administration staff of the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea will initially
comprise the existing staff of MLS and BTC and key staff provided by Murdoch University of Western
Australia under the partnership agreement. Once the University is established, courses determined and
facilities created, additional staff will be recruited. Initially the existing educational institutions of BTC
and MLS will become the faculties of Education and Religious Studies. Once the existing facilities are
upgraded and some essential new facilities constructed, other university faculties, which will include a
Trade School, will then be established in accordance with competent project management and available
resources.

Role of Private Industry


Private industry in Papua New Guinea will be invited to provide scholarships and educational funding
for the students at the University and where relevant, provide input to appropriate courses. This process
is already in place with some students at BTC studying under scholarships provided by private industry.

Mission Statement

The Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea will;


1. provide cost effective education with progressively reduced reliance on public funding,
2. meet the needs of its ultimate “customers” namely those prospective employers of the University
graduates. This will include best practice teaching methods for primary and secondary schools.
3. allow its graduates to pursue further study in their chosen discipline due to international
accreditation with Australian and other international educational institutions. A University degree
or a “trade ticket” will be recognized in other countries thereby allowing further study or
employment.
4. provide a broad range of courses, including certificate trade courses with the emphasis on
practical training.
5. conduct research into the educational needs of Papua New Guinea

The mission of the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea is to provide essential educational
infrastructure which promotes the spiritual, social, economic and environmental growth of Papua New
Guinea.

27/03/2008 3:16 PM3:16 PM


LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 8 of 63

Because of its association with the Lutheran Church, the University and the precursor institutions of
MLS and BTC, will also serve the religious community of Papua New Guinea by continuing to provide
Christian education.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA

General Background

The mainland of Papua New Guinea together with its six hundred other islands (463,000 square
kilometres) has a population of approximately 5.9 million. Most of the people are Melanesian, but some
are Micronesian or Polynesian. There are over seven hundred language groups, reflecting the diverse
origins of the people. English, Tok Pisin (Pidgin), and Motu (the lingua franca of the Papuan region) are
the official languages. English is the official language of Education, Commerce and Industry. The
spectrum of Papua New Guinean society now ranges from traditional village-based life dependent on
subsistence and small cash-crop agriculture, to modern urban life in the main cities of Port Moresby
(capital), Lae, Madang, Wewak, Mt Hagen, Goroka and Rabaul. Some 85 per cent of the population
directly derive their livelihood from farming, and 15 per cent of the population live in urban areas. The
85% of the population who live in the rural areas have limited access to basic services.

Papua New Guinea is one of the most diverse countries in the world - geographically, biologically,
linguistically and culturally. It has an abundance of natural resources, providing home to around 6% of
the world’s bio-diversity and has one of the last remaining tracts of tropical rainforest on earth

Papua New Guinea is widely dispersed with very difficult terrain, the population is young and has a high
proportion of unemployed. Papua New Guinea is prone to natural disasters, and in the last decade alone
has experienced multiple incidences of earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, floods, droughts and
killer frost that have resulted in a loss of lives, displacement of families, destruction of crops, property
and livelihoods, as well as disruption to social services, such as health and education.

Population

According to the 2000 Census, between 1980 and 2000 PNG’s population grew by an annual average
rate of 2.7% to 5.19 million in 2000. As mentioned it is estimated that this has now increased to 5.9
million with similar growth rates. The Southern Highlands Province, followed by Western New Britain,
recorded the highest population growth of 4.2% and 3.8% respectively. Approximately half of PNG’s
total population is under 19 years old.

27/03/2008 3:16 PM3:16 PM


LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 9 of 63

Most of the population live in rural communities based on the traditional village structure and are
dependent on subsistence farming supplemented by cash cropping. As mentioned only 15-20% of Papua
New Guineans live in the main urban areas of Port Moresby, Lae, Madang, Wewak, Mt Hagen and
Goroka and Rabaul.

Economy

Papua New Guinea has a relatively small dual economy, comprising a formal and informal economy.
The formal economy is dominated by large-scale resource projects, particularly in mining and
petroleum, and provides a large proportion of government revenue. The cash economy in many villages
is supplemented by mining royalties. The land ownership differs from the English or Australian system
(in which the crown reserves the “royal minerals”) in that the land and its resources (minerals) are
owned absolutely by the people and thus royalties must be paid to the local owners in return for the right
to extract minerals.

The informal economy supports 85% of the people through semi-subsistence agriculture. The formal
sector employs around 15% of the workforce. .PNG has an abundance of natural resources including:

• Large reserves of minerals


• Extensive forestry and fishery assets
• Significant potential for agricultural expansion
• Many beautiful locations with potential for tourism including ecological and cultural tourism

Papua New Guinea has a relatively broad agricultural base despite the fact that less than 2% of its land
area is currently cultivated. Ninety-eight per cent of the land is communally owned. Farming is the
principal activity of the majority of the people. Although operating largely at subsistence level,
significant numbers are increasingly becoming part of the cash economy producing, on a small scale,
export crops such as coffee, copra, palm oil, tea and cocoa. Papua New Guinea has a variety of mineral
posits, notably, copper, nickel and gold. It also has gas deposits.

Mining is the mainstay of the economy, accounting for 72% of export earnings annually (24% of the
GNP). The country has extensive forest reserves, which cover three-quarter of its land surface. It also
has considerable fishery resources. Indeed PNG has one of the richest tuna fishing grounds in the South
Pacific.

Economic Growth & Prospects

Despite the potential of these resources, Papua New Guinea’s economic performance has fallen short of
expectations. Economic growth has not kept up with population growth and performance varies
considerably from year to year.

During 2004, Papua New Guinea’s economy grew because of buoyant commodity prices and good fiscal
management by government. Increased foreign reserves and a strengthened Kina helped inflation and
interest rates remain low. With moderate GDP growth, rising tax receipts and reduced government
borrowing costs, the Papua New Guinea Government’s fiscal deficit is expected to remain small, despite
a modest surplus in 2004.

However, with weak medium term revenue prospects, Papua New Guinea needs to consolidate and build
on current economic and fiscal progress and provide social services and a regulatory framework to
support broad based economic growth. Papua New Guinea needs improved accountability and
governance mechanisms, including public expenditure management and public sector reform, to
promote and safeguard improved productivity.

With mining and petroleum sector production forecast to decline from 2006, major challenges for the
Papua New Guinea Government include making good use of existing revenue, expanding the non-
mining sector and ensuring economic stability through continued political and social reforms. One
important aspect is the improvement of the educational infrastructure.

The Somare government has improved the economy with good fiscal management. The good
management together with favourable prices of PNG’s main agricultural and mineral exports has lead to
positive growths of 2.8% in 2003 and 2.6% in 2004.

The abundance of natural resources provides PNG with great potential for economic diversification as
well as opportunities for greater self-reliance. However, these resources have not, over the years, been
reflected in the economic wellbeing of the people. In fact, the level of poverty in Papua New Guinea, as
measured by social indicators, has increased since independence.

Social Indicators

Until recently, Papua New Guinea was classified as a lower middle income country, because of a per
capita income which was as high as €1200. But GDP per head has fallen consistently since the mid-
1980s, reaching €930 in 1999 and €670 in 2003. Average life expectancy is 57 years and adult literacy is

10

27/03/2008 3:16 PM3:16 PM


LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 11 of 63

50-60 %. The economy is sustained by high levels of international aid (€78 per capita per annum).
(exchange rate 1 PNG kina=.26 euro)

Papua New Guinea’s population has suffered significant declines in living standards in recent years due
to worsening economic performance. Although the country does not exhibit the widespread abject
poverty present in some developing countries, poor health and social indicators show that poverty is a
real problem.

Papua New Guinea’s main social indicators, such as life expectancy and maternal and child mortality
rates, show improvements since 1975, but are still well below the averages for lower middle income
countries (LMICs).

Papua New Guinea still has limited primary health care. Infectious diseases are claiming many lives, and
there are serious public health risks from endemic diseases such as malaria, and an emerging HIV/AIDS
epidemic. An estimated 1.7% of people in Papua New Guinea carry the virus.

In education, the rate of participation in primary schooling is improving, but it remains lower than in
most other countries in the region. There are limited facilities for secondary and tertiary education.
Because of the isolationist geography of Papua New Guinea and the cost of travel and accommodation,
there is limited affordable access to educational institutions from some areas, particularly for tertiary
education and trade schools.

Communities are isolated, have poor health indicators and high rates of illiteracy, and urban
communities suffer from serious law and order problems. Poor rural conditions are feeding a drift
towards urban centres, where poverty is growing at a rapid rate.

The number of people living in poverty, that is, on less than US$1 a day, is around 40%.

See Annexure – PNG & Morobe Province Social and Economic Indicators at Part V of the Report.

Political situation

Papua New Guinea became independent from Australia in 1975. It has a parliamentary democracy based
on the Australian model - a single legislative chamber of 109 members elected by universal adult
suffrage for a period of five years. Its Head of State is Queen Elizabeth II who is represented by a
Governor General. It currently has a second tier provincial system of government.

LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 12 of 63

Legal system
Papua New Guinea has a strong legal system based on the English model and inherited from Australia. It
has legislation covering most areas of the law and qualified and experienced judges.

Links with Australia

Geographic and historical links make Papua New Guinea a special place for many Australians.
Australian troops occupied German New Guinea (northern part of the mainland) in 1914, and Australia
governed this area after World War 1. During the Second World War, Australian soldiers fought the
invading Japanese army and Australia governed the whole of PNG between 1945 – 1973. Australian
peacekeepers were based on the island of Bougainville from 1997 – 2003 after a ten year civil war
concluded.

Current Australian investments in Papua New Guinea are mainly in the mining and petroleum areas and
employing 7,000 Australians.

A group of people seeking refugee status in Australia were housed in an assessment centre in Papua
New Guinea during 2001-2002.

Australia’s aid to PNG comprises approximately one-fifth of its total aid budget. Programs focus on:

• strengthening governance - supporting economic management, building the capacity of Papua


New Guinea agencies to deliver services, promoting the rule of law and strengthening civil
society;
• improving social indicators - by expanding the quality and reach of primary health care and
education facilities, strengthening Papua New Guinea’s emergency response capacities and
promoting gender equity;
• building sustainable economic growth - by constructing and maintaining roads, communication
and water delivery systems, increasing agricultural productivity; and consolidating the peace
process in Bougainville.

Australian Government - Estimated Total Aid 2005-2006: AUD$492.3 million (K1, 538.44m).

Although Papua New Guinea faces significant social and economic governance challenges, developing a
secure and prosperous Papua New Guinea (PNG) remains a high priority for the Australian Government.

EXISTING EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS IN PAPUA NEW GUINEA

Education system
The Papua New Guinea education system comprises the traditional levels of elementary, primary,
secondary and higher education. Higher education consists of university and further education
institutions. The Universities offer many programs in different disciplines of education, medicine, law,
creative arts, science, agriculture and business.

Universities & Tertiary Education Development


The Universities in Papua New Guinea were established in response to the country’s political
developments in the 1960s and 1970s. The coming of self-government and independence necessitated
the training of indigenous people to assume administrative, economic and social responsibilities for the
nation from their colonial counterparts.

Academic, social and cultural, traditions, national work force, requirements and the need to establish a
balanced and integrated system of education in any national should dominate any university
development agenda. Planning and development of any university must seriously take into account these
factors to ensure institutional success, which will depend on the roles and administration of the
Universities that are perceived to play in the process of national development.

Demand for Higher Education


The total number of grade 12 school leavers in 1994 was 11,635 of these 3,500 were able to enter the
tertiary education system in 1995. This represents an overall contribution rate from secondary to tertiary
education of 30%. Completion and transition rates of grade 12 school leavers are higher when compared
to some other countries.

The number of Grade 12 leavers will have reached 15,000 plus by the years 2006 according to the
Department of Education. Even the current education reforms at the lower levels will not be able to
accommodate the ever increasing number of young people who will want to further their education.
According to the PNG National Health Plan 2000-2005, there are about 1,115,413 young children in the
age group of 5 to 14 in 2000. If 50% of these children are between 9 and 10 years of age, then there are
about 600,000 who should be in Grade 3 and 4, respectively in 2000. As these students progress through
the education system demand for higher education will exceed resources.

Access to University Education


The four publicly funded universities in Papua New Guinea are showing signs of organizational stress.
Access to existing universities has improved but is limited by existing resources. The demand for
university education or trade education is high and increasing. Many individuals who cannot satisfy
formal higher education admission requirement have the capacity and the motivation to successfully
13

27/03/2008 3:16 PM3:16 PM


LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 14 of 63

complete higher education programs. Where there has been a lack of educational facilities in the home
region of a student, the full educational potential of a student will not be reached.

Higher Education Institutional Enrolments


There exist twenty nine (29) educational institutions in the country that receive Government funding.
They account to 7 Universities, 8 teachers colleges, 4 technical colleges, 3 business colleges, 7
schools of nursing and 8 other higher education institutions. Tertiary institutions enrolments are shown
in the compensation table from 2000 to 2004 as per attached annexure TE.

Affiliation and Partnership of Higher Education


The Papua New Guinea Commission for Higher Education initiated a National accreditation policy in
1995 to establish quality assurance and credit transfer systems between institutions and programs
including overseas recognition and accreditation of Papua New Guinea academic and professional
qualifications.

PART II - THE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY OF PAPUA NEW


GUINEA
ESTABLISHMENT OF THE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY OF PAPUA NEW GUINEA

The case for establishing a University at Lae

As stated, there is a need to increase tertiary education institutions in Papua New Guinea. It is submitted
that the creation of a new University at Lae by expanding and upgrading an existing educational facility,
is an astute move to not only increase educational capacity at a substantially reduced cost but also to
create a tertiary educational institution in an important economic region of Papua New Guinea. By
providing a well managed educational institution, the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea will
contribute to the social and economic future of Papua New Guinea. Its graduates will join graduates
from other tertiary institutions and contribute to the intellectual capital for Papua New Guinea. The
graduates can look forward to rewarding careers for the benefit of Papua New Guinea and themselves.

There are compelling arguments for the establishment of the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea.
These arguments can be summarized in the following points:

! In terms of primary and secondary education, there is a need for educated and trained teachers
with particular focus on the unique challenges of the PNG teaching environment. A well funded
University with degrees in Education supported by a research program enquiring into Papua New
Guinea educational needs, will be a boost to the National Government’s commitment to improve

14

27/03/2008 3:16 PM3:16 PM


LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 15 of 63

educational facilities in Papua New Guinea. The Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea has
been conceived as a “boutique” University in the sense that it will have a strong research and
development program into the most appropriate teacher knowledge and skills for Papua New
Guinea primary and secondary students. The University will with the assistance of the
Department of Education, and Office of Higher Education develop the most appropriate
curricula, course programs and other teacher resource materials.
! This will include in-service training to update skills.
! Increasing national demand for tertiary education in Papua New Guinea;
! Morobe Province – geographic isolation from existing tertiary institutions and gateway to major
economic regions of the country;
! Morobe Province – strong economy with increasing demand for a skilled workforce;
! Existing land and buildings, that with upgrades and expansion would be suitable for a University;
! Educational expertise of Lutheran Church;
! Development of research program with the aim of improving the educational infrastructure
throughout Papua New Guinea at all levels. The research findings will be implemented by
modifications to the Degree courses. The research programs will make submissions to the many
international funding institutions to provide funding and resources. Over time the Degree in
Education will be recognized as a high standard and internationally recognized and accredited.
The partner University from Australia (Murdoch) will ensure that the appropriate accreditation
and quality assurance is maintained. Not only will the Degree in Education be developed to
provide the best practice and most appropriate training for the future primary and secondary
teachers of Papua New Guinea, the teachers themselves will be able to take their knowledge and
skills and pursue further specialized courses of study at Australian and other accredited
Universities.

Lae City and Morobe Province

The Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea will be situated within a kilometer of the business
precincts of Lae city, the major industrial city of Papua New Guinea. Morobe Province has 96.4%
Christian population out of which 72% are Lutheran and is one of the most cohesive parts of Papua New
Guinea without law and order issues which plague other parts of the country. It is the largest Province
of the country by land area and population and is also the gateway to the highlands of Papua New
Guinea with the coast by road and the Momase region. It is certainly one of the most ideal places in
Papua New Guinea to develop an institution of higher learning for its citizens. The Social Indicators of

LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 16 of 63

the Morobe Province are set out in Annexure PNG and Morobe Province Basic Social and Economic
Indicators – Contained in Part V of this Report.

Existing infrastructure for the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea

The land and buildings where both Martin Luther Seminary and Balob Teachers College campuses
currently sits are owned and provided by the Lutheran Church will now emerge as the core facilities
provided for by the church for the establishment of the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea.

Funding is required by the various stakeholders to upgrade the buildings and the site and to provide
operational funding.

The existing campus is situated along the Busu road, being a kilometer North of Lae City. It is an area
in excess of 70 hectare site and will provide an excellent site for a University.

Legal Structure for the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea.

The legal structure will be:

1. The land and existing buildings of Martin Luther Seminary and Balob Teachers College will be
contributed by the Lutheran Church
2. A special purpose company will be incorporated in the name and style “the Lutheran University
Papua New Guinea”
3. The Lutheran University Act will be passed by Parliament. This Act will contain provisions to
establish the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea and to provide for its administration.

Australian University as Partner for the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea

An important aspect of the establishment of Lae Lutheran University is that an Australian University
will “partner” the University and share knowledge, experience and resources.

University or Trade Qualifications achieved by students will be accredited with Universities and
institutions in Australia.
The partnership with Murdoch University will have the following benefits and aspects:
(a) opportunity to share skills, knowledge and resources
(b) immediate transfer of intellectual property by Murdoch at costs in area of university curriculum
development and delivery and ongoing support of it,
(c) qualifications of the new University to be assured of international university accreditation, and
(d) Murdoch to assist management of the University by providing advice on appointment of key
officers including Vice Chancellor, Financial Controller and Chief Administrative Officer and
further assist with the project management of the University including capital works, facilities
upgrading and provide assistance and advice on budgetary and financial reporting requirements.

PART III – OPERATIONS

THE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY OF PAPUA NEW GUINEA FACILITIES

The University facilities will be created by upgrading and expanding on the facilities of the Martin
Luther Seminary and the Balob Teachers College.

See Annexure SP - site plan of MLS and BTC facilities

The University will be expanded progressively with a target capacity of 3000 students by 2010.

Initially the faculties of Education and Religion will be developed. As further facilities are developed
and expanded , other faculties will be established.
A Trade School will be established as soon as possible. It is considered that not only will this provide
essential educational infrastructure, the University building program will be an excellent opportunity for
practical training in building trades. Based on preliminary discussions with private industry it is
expected that there will be considerable and financial support for a Trade School from private industry.

A SECOND CAMPUS IN WESTERN PROVINCE

If funding whether by way of loan, grant or equity is secured from the PNG Sustainable Development
Fund, it is expected and understood that the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea would open a
second campus in the Western Province of Papua New Guinea. As to where the actual site in Western
Province and its financial implications (eg. costs) have been left to ongoing discussions to be held with
relevant governmental officers from that Province and the PNG Sustainable Development Fund.

CHURCH INSTITUTIONS IN PNG

Lutheran Church agency own and operated learning institutions in Papua New Guinea are 402 which is
more than 50% of all types of learning institutions whether established by government or private

Existing Facilities at the Martin Luther Seminary and Balob Teachers College

The existing facilities can be easily upgraded to suit the requirements of the University.
A summary of the existing facilities is set out in the comments on Martin Luther Seminary and Balob
Teachers College.

Construction and Upgrading of Facilities

The University senior management will ensure that a professional project management process is used in
relation to the construction and upgrade of facilities. As additional capacity is created, the student
numbers will be increased.
There will be a project management team to ensure that the upgrade and new construction proceeds
competently.
Initially, the existing facilities will be upgraded and the first stage construction will be undertaken with
priority given to:
! Library
! 2 x Dormitories ( 1 x male and 1 x female)
! 2 x Double classrooms
! 6 x staff medium cost accommodation

See Annexure BLDG – capital expenditure and upgrade and maintenance schedule

UNIVERSITY COURSES

Degrees and Diplomas


The degree programs will be developed in conjunction with Murdoch University.

Initially the courses offered by the Martin Luther seminary and the Balob Teachers College will be
developed to offer the relevant degrees. Later other courses will be introduced once the relevant
funding, facilities and staff are in place.

A major object of the degree program will be that graduates will have accreditation within the Australian
University program. This accreditation will allow for credits for undergraduate subjects taken at the
Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea. A graduate of the Lutheran University of Papua New
Guinea will also be able to pursue post graduate studies at an accredited Australian University including
at its partner University, Murdoch, Western Australia.

The Martin Luther Seminary (MLS) was founded by the Lutheran Churches in Papua New Guinea as a
school to train pastors and as a Theological resources center for the churches. The institution is jointly
owned and governed through an established seminary council by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of
PNG and the Gutnius Lutheran Church of PNG. The existing Institution provides Christian education
and training in the following courses:

PART IV – FUNDING

One of the key aspects of the establishment of the Lutheran University of Papua New Guinea is that
once initial funding is secured and the capital works completed, the aim is for a substantial part of the
University income will be generated by student tuition fees. The funding provided by the National
Government has been estimated at 50% of expenses in year 1 (2006), namely K6 million with this
amount reducing to K4 million by year 5 (2010).
The upgrade and new construction building works will be completed in stages subject to the overall
project management and available funding and resources.
An important addition to the courses offered is that of a Trade School. This will be an attractive course
for school leavers and prospective employers and is expected to be financially and logistically supported
by private industry.
It should be noted that there is an increasing trend for tuition fees to be paid by private industry. It is
considered that the projected tuition fees and associated boarding fees are affordable for those students
without sponsorship.
Private funding sources have not been included. It should be noted that it is intended that a the Lutheran
University of Papua New Guinea Education Fund be established to provide scholarships for needy
students. These funds will be paid to the University as tuition and boarding fees and is reflected in the
income on that basis.

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT AND AUDIT OF PROJECT

The feasibility proposal preparation included approaches by the Committee to a number of major
Accounting Firms to provide quotes for provision of strategic financial advisory and Audit Services.
International Accounting Firm, Deloittes Touche Tohmatsu has confirmed that the Firm would provide
all financial advisory work necessary for the project to ensure implementation on a once off basis and
subsequently if appropriate provide audit services although this activity maybe performed by the Auditor
General of Papua New Guinea due to government funding of the Lutheran University of Papua New
Guinea. The appointment of Deloittes was made to ensure governance, due process requirements and
transparency concerns are adequately observed from commencement of feasibility through to the project
execution and beyond.

school to train pastors and as a theological think-tank resource centre for the Lutheran churches.

First school classes were held at Balob Teachers College campus from 1966 to 1970 and MLS gradually
moved to its current campus in 1971. The institution is jointly owned by and governed through an

24

LAE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY – PROPOSAL 25 of 63

established seminary governing council by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of PNG and the Gutnius
Lutheran Church of PNG.

The Seminary upholds the philosophy of Lutheran education in general, integrating therewith the
national education’s policy and guidelines on Higher Education and Christian principles of promoting
integral human development.

The institution operates and conducts on a two to six year intensive certificate, diploma, degree and post
graduate study course programs. Study courses are for bible doctrines, history, ministry, general studies,
philosophy, physiology, sociology, and humanity. The Seminary had a teaching staff strength that grew
from 3 in 1966 to 14 in 2005. All of the teaching personnel held diploma, bachelor, masters or PHD
qualifications in relevant disciplines. Student enrolment population grew from 5 in 1966 to the current
40. The majority of students namely up to 95% of the student is from the Lutheran Churches. The entry
requirements for all students are Grade 10/12 or equivalent.

Most of the facilities consist of buildings that were built over 30 ago years ago with European (German)
design. There were well built and can be maintained in good conditions with very minimum
maintenance.

Transport and building maintenance service workshops are operated by for the benefit of MLS and BTC
on the site

Compared to other institutions in Papua New Guinea , MLS is the oldest theological school with the
highest number of graduates. Many high profile distinguished public servants, pastors, businessmen,
leaders, academics and technical personnel have been educated by MLS.

MLS has built a reputation in producing school of excellence in the faculty of Religion and other
disciplines.

Upgrading of Facilities
MLS requires upgrading or expansion of its facilities:

! Expansion of library facilities and equipment

! Expansion of administrative block/facilities


! Houses for extra teaching staff
! Upgrading of dormitories
! Upgrading of classrooms; facilities and equipment
! Upgrading of mess and its facilities
! Erecting of a new multipurpose hall

Martin Luther Seminary Resources

Water Supply
The institution is adequately serviced by Papua New Guinea Water board water supply system.
Additionally it also has a stand by operational underground water pump, constantly storing and servicing
on 8,000 liters of overhead water storage tanks built over 10 meter iron post.

The existing underground water project can only be expanded to a larger and improved scale once
student/teacher population demand increases. Big Southern Cross tanks can be built on certain locations
as per need.

Electricity
Papua New Guinea Power has adequately serviced the electricity power service needs of the institution.
Other infrastructures could be expanded from the existing set up. It is advisable that a standby generator
should be purchased and used considering the frequent PNG Power failures/blackouts.

Classrooms
The current infrastructure is inadequate to cater for the growing student population. MLS is anticipated
to grow from its current strength of 40 students 2005 to the projected 200 students in 2007.

MLS has a double storey classroom building with some office spaces which is ideal for a ratio of 1:30
teacher student requirement.

More specialist course programs like science or computer would benefit from their own specialist
buildings/rooms which would be new construction.

Staff and Student desks and seating needs improving. New office furniture is required.

lease land.
A recent land improvement valuation to the vicinity of K6.2m has been conducted by Mr. Frank Ogasi.

! Short fall in accommodation for staff
! Inadequate site services including water, sewerage, electricity and communications
! Teaching classroom
! Inadequate library facilities, services and study space

Water Supply
The institution is adequately serviced by PNG Water board water supply system. Big Southern Cross
tanks can be built on certain locations as per emergency need.

Electricity
PNG Power has adequately serviced the electricity power service needs of the institution. Other
infrastructures could be expanded from the existing set up. It is advisable that a standby generator should
be purchased and used considering the frequent PNG Power failures/blackouts.

Classroom
The current infrastructure is inadequate to cater for the growing demanding student population.
Anticipated to grow from current strength of 708 students in 2005.

Existing facilities consist of a two double storey classroom building with four lecture rooms in each and
office spaces of three in between.

The Balob institution sits on a huge hectare of the land mass belonging to the Evangelical Lutheran
Church of Papua New Guinea given by the government under the 99 year mission lease land agreement.
A recent land improvement valuation to the vicinity of K3.2m has been conducted by Mr. Frank Ogasi.
VR 64 of Melanesian Real Property valuation services on the 31/12/02. It is an ideal land piece for any
further expansion requirement needs of the proposed university’s faculty expansion program.
The diploma in teaching program offers a wide range of learning opportunities that prepares the trainee
teachers to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to adequately meet and cope with the country’s
emerging changes and challenges in the teaching profession. The programs are designed to produce
teachers of high integrity who are concerned about personal, professional and intellectual development
and show to dedication and commitment to work with good Christian values and practices. More
