Nkozi University has a New Chancellor

Bishop Joseph Antony Zziwa of Kiyinda-Mityana Diocese was installed as the new Chancellor of Uganda Martyrs University Nkozi (UMU) last month.

This installation as Chancellor follows his election as the new Chairman of the Uganda Episcopal Conference. He succeeded Archbishop John Baptist Odama. Bishop Zziwa in his maiden speech, acknowledged the tremendous work that all his predecessors, the Uganda Episcopal Conference, Governing Council, management and staff of UMU have done.

In a special way, he appreciated Kam­pala Archdiocese for availing land where the University is estab­lished. He urged the UMU commu­nity to stick to the core values of the University in order to achieve its vision of; "To be a University that is nationally and internation­ally recognized for excellence in teaching, learning, research, ad­vancement of knowledge and com­munity engagement".

Meanwhile, the Patron of the University, Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, appealed to the management and staff of UMU to ensure that all University campuses maintain the same quality and standards because of the confidence the public holds for the University. He urged the laity to renew their support, moral and financial to the university to remain relevant in this present competitive higher education landscape. While, Archbishop Odama, the outgoing Chancellor, expressed gratitude to the Uganda Episcopal Confer­ence for entrusting him with the stewardship role and being Chan­cellor of UMU for 8 years and 6 months. He promised to support and prayed for his successor and the new team to lead Uganda Mar­tyrs University to greater heights. “I know you may meet chal­lenges, but if you are firm and work as a team, God will always be with you be­cause this is a University of Jesus Christ”, he advised. In his turn, the Vice Chancellor, Rev. Prof. John Chrysostom Maviiri was very grateful to the Ugan­da Episcopal Conference, the la­ity, alumni and students for the continuous material and spiritual support to the University. He high­lighted some of the UMU achieve­ments and recognized in a special way, members of the outgoing Governing Council.

UMU was established in October 1993 with 84 students and two ac­ademic departments: the Institute of Ethics & Development Studies and the Faculty of Business Ad­ministration & Management at Nkozi. Since then, more courses have been added and campuses opened in various areas of the country.
