WAITRO welcomes UCU, Uganda
UCU joins WAITRO as a Full Member
UGANDA has recently joined WAITRO as a Full Member. Uganda Christian University (UCU) is an authentic Christian institution established by the Church of Uganda in 1997 in response to a call for quality university education with a Christian perspective. Uganda Christian University replaced the historic Bishop Tucker Theological College which trained clergy and educators during its 84-year history from 1913-1997.
In 2004, UCU became the first private university to be chartered or accredited by the government of Uganda.
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.
A leading Online Distance Learning (ODeL) institution in Uganda today, UCU established a Learning Management System, known as the UCU eLearning platform in 2014, to prepare for an Information Technology-driven academic landscape. Assessed and approved by the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE), the UCU eLearning platform’s capacity to host students connecting from all over the continent and beyond has since increased.
