Dr. Kebirungi Harriet, PhD – Ag. Director of Gender Mainstreaming

Hello our valued Guest,

We are very delighted to welcome you to the web-page of the Directorate of Gender Mainstreaming at Kyambogo University. The page highlights a brief historical perspective of the Directorate, the Directorates’ mandate, management structures, administrative staff, partnerships and research projects, conferences, workshops and seminars and navigates you through the Kyambogo University Gender Policy (2014).

Our mandate stretches to promote gender and equity responsiveness in the provision of goods and services to Kyambogo University consumers who include members of staff and students, University Council and Senate and their committees, consultants, vendors, service providers, and any other agent/stakeholder of the University who engages in University activities, business, or transactions. The Directorate is cognizant of the gender related life challenges, issues, concerns and special needs of all vulnerable groups or any nationally or legally recognized groups including but not limited to persons with disabilities. The Directorate achieves its mandate through application and utilization of gender related international, national, and institutional policies that protect and promote such group rights and interests.

The Directorate of Gender Mainstreaming at Kyambogo University has established both national and international partnerships and collaborations in education and other sectors and commissions that promote gender and equity in educational settings.
