Uganda Christian University replaced the historic Bishop Tucker Theological College which trained clergy and educators during its 100 history. The local chief, Hamu Mukasa, granted land for the college to operate in Mukono.
International partnerships were part of the Bishop Tucker Theological College’s missionary history. The Church Mission Society teamed up with Ugandan leaders and others to assure the College had the necessary intellectual and other capital.
In 1992, the House of Bishops made a decision to start a Provincial University. The church wanted to have broader impact on society through university education – not only educating clergy but other professionals as well. As a result, UCU was born in 1997. Located in Mukono, less than an hour’s drive from the capital city Kampala, Uganda Christian University is one of Uganda’s leading teaching and research universities.
