The School of the Sacrament Ras Tafari University (SOSACRU) is livicated to the study of Ras Tafari as an African sociological ethos, inclusive of culture, economic sustainability, and spirituality. Our programs prioritize the knowledge of Ras Tafari as a way of life with instruction and teaching modules that support holistic standards of living, spiritual practices, including Ras Tafari rituals, and African-centred medicinal herbal usage (sacraments). We are aligned to an academic community of Ras Tafari scholars who are grounded in community development, social justice activism, and the shaping of new paradigm thinking. 


A well organized education should not be one which prepares students for a good remuneration alone. It should be one that can help and guide them towards acquiring clear thinking, a fruitful mind, and an elevated spirit
