Gulu University puts over 200 million to facelift Hoima Satellite Campus

Gulu University management team led by deputy Vice-Chancellor, Associate Professor David Okello Owiny has revealed that the University has put over UGX 200 million to kick start the face-lift of Gulu University Hoima campus by the end of 2020/2021 financial year.


The team that included the University Secretary, Obol David Otori, Dr. Jerry Bagaya the Academic Registrar, Senior Human Resource Officer, Cakuru Christine Atiku, Director ICT, Perez Matsiko and the Estate Officer, Okot Wokorach Stephen among others paid a courtesy call to the Rt. Hon: Andrew Byakutaga Ateenyi the Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom Prime minister


Associate Professor David Okello Owiny the head of delegation assured the Kingdom that the University management is committed in ensuring that the Hoima campus is independently accredited so that more programs are added on the current few being offered under the direct supervision of the main campus in Gulu city. He added that he carried all key heads of department so that they can do assessment on their various departments and directorates and see how to improve Hoima campus holistically and prepare it for accreditation with the National Council for Higher Education immediately after the facelift


The University Secretary Obol David Otori called upon the Kingdom to support them in lobbying for more resources so that Hoima campus is expanded and informed the Kingdom prime minister that the University had acquired land of about 7 acres in Buswekera Hoima City for future expansion. Rt. Hon: Andrew Byakutaga Ateenyi the Prime Minister of Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom pledged their continued support for the University's growth in the area and applauded the University management for thinking of elevating the campus after almost 6 years of establishing the campus in Hoima.


The team in their two days visit that ended on Wednesday also met both the Academic and Administrative staff including students on the new development. Hoima Campus currently only runs undergraduate programs that include, Public Administration, Development Studies, Business Administration, Agriculture, Bachelor of Education among others but accreditation of the campus will enable post-graduate programs to be introduced through distance learning.


In 2014 Gulu University partnered with the Royal Kingdom of Bunyoro Kitara to give affordable University education to the subjects of the King and the Kingdom offered part of their buildings to kick-start the current existing Campus as their contribution.
