Bishops Communication to the University Stake Holders 

To all the the Clergy and the Religious, Deanery and Parish Leaders and The Lay Faithful.

In a bid to strengthen education in the Diocese, I am pleased to officially inform you that the Diocese embarked on the process to establish and run a Private University in the Diocese. On 18/07/2022, National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) honored our application and granted to us a Letter of Interim Authority to operate a Private University in Uganda. The name of the University is “ST. IGNATIUS UNIVERSITY KABALE.”

The Letter of interim Authority from NCHE allows us officially to:

  1. Mobilize funds,
  2. Acquire requisite infrastructure and academic facilities,
  3. Organize academic and administrative human resources and do any other things that may further the development of the proposed university to maturity.

We are now in the process of organizing the above requirements in view of applying for a Provisional License. On submitting the application for a Provisional License, NCHE will set a team to come and inspect our Campus and if found ready, we shall be granted the provisional license to operate.

With this information, therefore, I invite you to actively collaborate with the Steering Committee in place so that we can together expedite the process of realizing this noble project in our Diocese.

I wish you all God’s blessings
