ICT Policy


 

 

Kyambogo University (KyU), established in 2003 as one of the Public Universities in Uganda is in the process of transformation to ensure efficient and effective service delivery to her clients. The University has positioned itself as one of the leading Universities in Uganda offering a number of academic and skilling programmes that are in line with National and International development needs.

The University's Strategic Plan of 2012/13 to 2022/23 defines the systematic direction of the growth of Kyambogo University which is premised in its motto of advancing knowledge and skills for service in all areas of research, engineering, teacher education, special needs, technical science, vocational education and outreach activities.

In order to realize this strategic direction (strategic focus area ii and iii), the university is steadily expanding its ICT resources and services. This has been supported by university's in-house developed software referred to as the e-Kampus System that streamline fees payment, admissions and registration of students, dissemination of results to students among others.

 GENDER POLICY


MESSAGE FROM THE UNIVERSITY COUNCIL CHAIRPERSON
Kyambogo University's target is to be one of the very best universities in Uganda and Africa at large. To reach that target, the knowledge and ambitions of employees and students must be utilised, and their different perspectives must be allowed to help establish a creative study, learning and research environment. Mainstreaming gender issues and promotion of gender equality, equal treatment and diversity will lead to improved quality in the university.

The development and adoption of Kyambogo University Gender Policy confirms the University Council is unequivocal commitment to take actions that will bring about more equal gender relations within the university setting. This policy will ensure that all university's policies, systems and programmes are consistent with the national and international gender laws and policies. The policy also gives a clear mandate to the management of Kyambogo University to mainstream gender in university functions. My warm thanks to those who supported and worked in making this policy an integral part of our university-wide policy structure. Many hours went into making this policy a reality, and therefore everyone who participated is applauded. 

I am glad to declare this Policy operational with effect from the date of its approval by the University Council on July 2014.

Chairperson, Kyambogo University Council
