About UCU:
Uganda Christian University was

university in 1997. Bishop Tucker Theological College trained clergy and
educators during its 84-year history from 1913-1997. The local chief, Hamu
Mukasa, granted land for the college to operate in Mukono. International

Society teamed with Ugandan leaders and others to assure the College had the
necessary intellectual and other capital. By the late 1990s, the Church of
Uganda sought to have a broader impact on society through the higher education
