A warm welcome to the Directorate of Planning and Development. In an era of global diversity, it is essential for an institution to embrace the planning& Development function in order to keep a strategic direction and reduce uncertainties through clearly illustrated strategic interventions such as the goals and objectives towards the Vision and Mission of the Institution.
The Directorate of planning and Development reports directly to the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Finance and Administration.
The Directorate has been key in providing the Strategic direction of the University through a clearly illustrated well aligned Strategic Plan 2015/16 – 2019/20 of the University with a road map demonstrating how the Vision of the institution would be achieved.
Considering the unique nature of Kyambogo University arising out of an amalgamation of three different institutions, the Directorate has a crucial role to play in guiding the institution to fulfil its mandate in order to compete favourably in the labour market and spur productivity and economic development.
The Directorate is cognizant that the inherent strengths of the institution in the disciplines of pedagogy Vocational education, special needs education, Teacher education and engineering still exists since its inception in 2003. It is therefore important that the different planning centres are guided to devise strategies in promoting these and more market oriented disciplines so that the University can execute its functions effectively and efficiently in its quest to attain its Vision which is. “To be a Center of Academic and Professional Excellence”.
