Office of the vice chancellor
To All deans of Faculties and Schools
All Academic Staff, Kyambogo University
Subject: A BIG THANK YOU.
I wish to thank you heartily for all your efforts and commitment that saw us come to the end of the Second Semester successfully. This period was not easy as it included a very busy examination time in addition to teaching. I wish to commend the efforts of each one of you, both the academic administrators and academic staff.
I also wish to appeal to you to embark on marking the student’s scripts in preparations for the coming of External Examiners and for the beginning of the First Semester 2016/17. Please use the holiday time to finish marking so that we start the next semester on a clean sheet.
To the Deans and Heads of Departments, Please organise your units as you prepare to shoulder greater responsibility following decentralization of Department and Faculty Management. You are responsible for academic leadership in your units and soon you will also be in charge of financial matters. So put in place structures that will help you accomplish your goals. You are going to be the forefront of academic and administrative leadership and management of your academic units, so be prepared. For reading on Principles of Management, please google Henri Foyal, 1831-1925. There are very good lessons for lessons for all of us.
You will also be responsible for organising and conducting ITCSP and School Practice. Your unit will receive all the money contributed by students in your Faculty for ITCSP, so please plan with those resources. I wish you a successful period.
Lastly, once again I thank you and look forward to yet another exciting semester ahead of us. Let us all commit ourselves to building a truly international research active institution producing high quality, relevant graduates for our community and beyond.
May God / Allah richly, bless you and be generous to you.
