Makerere University -the 8th best University in Africa

August 21, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

About the tour

The highest-ranked university in sub-Saharan Africa in 2020 by the U.S. News & World Report ranking, Makerere is Uganda’s oldest and largest high learning institution first established as a technical school in 1922 and became an independent national university by 1970. It currently has 9 colleges and one school with alumni such as President Milton Obote, Julius Nyerere, Benjamin Mpaka, Joseph Kabila and Mwai Kibaki, as well as prominent writers like Ngugi wa Thiong’o were at one point in their writing and academic careers at Makerere University. The College of Health Sciences and the research departments are working together with Uganda’s Ministry of health to enhance COVID-19 awareness, and research focused on current issues to support evidence-based decision making, and mitigate the impact of the pandemic on essential health and other services, especially in vulnerable groups such as adolescents and children, refugees, among others. The University also inhabits and engages many persons with disabilities and actually Rosemary attends the Business school for her undergraduate degree! Join us as we discover more about the University and maybe, we could get to learn about why there are usually many students unrest, faculty disenchantment and how the longest standing building (Ivory tower) was gutted by fire in September 2020. This tour will be guided in International Signs by Noah as well as in English by Rosemary!
