About UCU:
Uganda Christian University was

Mukasa, granted land for the college to operate in Mukono. International
partnerships were part of the College’s missionary history. The Church Mission
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
