Glamour as thousands Graduate at Kampala University
It was a joyous moment when thousands graduate at Kampala University Headquarters in Ggaba on 4th May 2023.
In her remarks, the Inspector General of the Government of Uganda (IGG), encouraged Graduands that, it is essential to cultivate a culture of integrity. This means doing the right thing, the right way, all the time, whether people are watching or nobody is watching you. To insist on integrity and accountability by public officers.
The University Chancellor Hon. Prof. Mondo Kagonyera advised students not to rest, and to continue striving towards achieving greater goals Kagonyera said. Excelling in all aspects of life requires discipline and character. These qualities definitely form the core of a fulfilled and rewarding life.
The Vice-Chancellor Owek.Amb. Al-haj Prof Badru D Kateregga advised the general public that there’s a need for a review of curricula for higher Institutions, as you are well aware, there is a general curricula review exercise in the country for the entire curricula used in our basic primary, lower secondary and upper secondary school levels. I am glad to report that, our very own lecturers including the DVCARII Dr Wardah Rajab Gyagenda, Dr Rebecca Kirunda, Mr Ssenkusu Pius, Madam Zenna Kibwanga, Mr Mukasa Fred and many others have been specially engaged by the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) to participate in the Curriculum review process. This has automatically turned our staff into trainers of trainers (TOT) for the National Curriculum Development review program.
Being aware that a new competency-based curriculum (CBC) is being implemented in our school systems, we at KU have also embarked on a massive curriculum review process for our own programmes to ensure that our curricula are well aligned with the competency-based curricula, which are being rolled out at both Primary and Secondary school levels to avoid a disconnect for students who are products of the new curricula when they join the University.
The function attracted high-profile people from within and outside the country
