The motto of Frantz Fanon University is this: Breaking all chains, visible and invisible; building up from ruins, personal and social.

 

Frantz Fanon University is committed to help remove chains which come in different forms, be they overt (as those used on psychiatric patients in Somali society) or covert as the oppressive systems and psychology perpetuating social injustice; it is also committed to help build up individual lives, families, and society from personal and social ruins resulting from either overt or covert chains.

 

It is from this perspective of social justice that Frantz Fanon Universtiy aspires to direct and realize in its teaching of knowledge, skills, and practice.
