Kyambogo University to Hold a Crisis Meeting Over Graduation Mess

Kyambogo University will today hold a crisis meeting after a section of students whose names are not on the graduation list dragged the institution to court

Kyambogo University will today hold a crisis meeting after a section of students whose names are not on the graduation list dragged the institution to court.

The students on Tuesday sued the University for not including their names on the list, ahead of the graduation slated for next week, despite fulfilling all the requirements.

The university Vice-Chancellor Prof. Eli Katugunka says the legal team will attend the meeting before filing their defense and wait for the court decision.

He adds that the final list of the graduands is expected to be out today, so some of the aggrieved students are encouraged to check for their names before proceeding with the court action.

About Kyambogo University

Kyambogo University is a relatively new University created with the main aim of promoting and advancing knowledge and development of skills in Science, Technology, and Education, and other fields having regard for quality, equity, progress, and transformation of society.

Kyambogo University (KYU) is Uganda’s third public university established by the Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions Act 2001 and the Universities and Other Tertiary institutions (Establishment of Kyambogo University) instruments of 2003.

It is a merger of the former Uganda Polytechnic Kyambogo (UPK), the Institute of Teacher Education, Kyambogo (ITEK), and the Uganda National Institute of Special Education (UNISE). Although Kyambogo is a new university, it has a rich history that dates as far back as 1928. UPK started in 1928 as a small technical school on Makerere Hill and was transferred to Kyambogo Hill in 1958 as Kampala Technical Institute.

It transformed into a National Teachers’ College and later ITEK as per the statute of parliament in 1989.
