Kyambogo University is the 2nd largest Public University in Uganda.  The core function of the University is Teaching, Training and research as prescribed in its Vision “A center of Academic and Professional Excellence”

The contribution of the various planning centers such as Vice chancellors’ Office, Academic Registrar, Directorate of Human Resources, Finance Department, Dean of Student’s Office, DICTs, and all Faculties and Schools is critically worth mentioning since their participation has promoted the University policy of bottom – up approach towards development.

Special thanks goes to the Central Government for its continued support to the University.  Last but not the least, we thank the Directorate of Planning and Development Staff, and to all stakeholders who contributed tremendously in the data collection, spearheading and coordinating the process that led to the compilation and production of this Fact Book and all those whose efforts and support contributed to the formulation of the Fact Book 2018/19.

I call upon all the stakeholders of the University to utilize efficiently and effectively the information herein and use it to make informed decisions for the progress and development of Kyambogo University.

For God and My Country

Prof. Eli Katunguka – Rwakishaya
