Historically it evolved from a small leadership training center which had played a paramount role in building the leadership capacity of the region. Symbolically it bears the name of OROMIA which has deep relation with the Oromo. It got this name when it was promoted to University in 2017.  It is the only State University in the country. As a regional government consulting university, the university focuses on capacity building of the region via leadership and public servant development, reform and transformation of public institutions of the region.
