UCU is a land of potential, says Prof. Mushengyezi

By Frank Obonyo
“This is a state-of-the art University. I cannot believe that you can go to the students’ halls of residence and you find functional washrooms. Your lecture room windows are made of glass but none of them is broken. This is strange to me! Do you people live in Uganda?”

These were the words of Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi, the incoming Uganda Christian University (UCU) Vice Chancellor during his maiden tour of the campus.

He said it is very clear that UCU is value based. There is a pattern of trying to safeguard history, culture and minimum quality of standards.

“The campus has a very rear sight. It is extremely organized and a land of potential for many things”

He was received and guided around the campus by the Vice Chancellor, Rev. Canon. Dr. John Senyonyi, flanked by his deputies, Mr. David Mugawe, Finance and Administration and Dr. John Kitayimbwa of Academic Affairs. He said that he is impressed by the way the university is managed.

“I have got a good impression because this University cherishes standard. No wonder, it is a “A Centre of Excellence in the Heart of Africa”

He also noted that UCU has room for growth especially in research and more facilities. Prof. Mushengyezi also promised students that together with his team, they will create more amenities such as a business centre to enable them enjoy campus life and excel in academics.

He thanked the previous vice chancellors; Bishop Eliphaaz Maari, Rev. Prof. Stephen Noll and the outgoing Vice Chancellor, Rev. Canon Dr. John Senyonyi for laying a firm foundation for him.

He toured the dinning, library, sports facilities, halls of residence, the vice chancellor’s 1906 residence, technology park, lecture rooms, all faculty offices, the bakery and Eunice Guest House.
