Joy: University of Kisubi Chartered
It was all Joy as University of Kisubi gathered to celebrate the Charter granted to the University.
The celebration started with Mass led by Msgr. Dr. Lawrence Ssemusu accompanied by different clergy men and women, animated by the angelic Choir of Kisubi University.
Why the Charter?
According to the Universities and other Tertiary Institutions Act, a charter is “granted by the President as evidence that the university meets the requirements and standards of academic excellence set by the NCHE.”
Furthermore, according to section 103(a) of the same Act 2001 as amended; a chartered university means a university that is comparable to a public university.
For any private university, getting a charter means, therefore, that it lays out guidelines for; establishment, control, management and administration of the institution. “This is the grant of authority, the full and highest of a right… to exercise the responsibility of running a university. It is a sovereign right given by the head of state in any state.”
