MetadataShow full item record
Kyambogo University is a Public University established in 2003 by the Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions Act 2001, as amended in 2003 and 2006. It was specifically established under Statutory Instrument, Number 37 of 2003. Kyambogo University is a body corporate that arose out of the merger of the Institute of Teacher Education Kyambogo (ITEK), the Uganda Polytechnic Kyambogo, (UPK) and the Uganda National Institute of Special Education (UNISE). Section 38 of the Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions Act, 2001 (as amended), creates a University Council. Section 40 (1) makes the University Council the supreme organ of the Public University and as such responsible for the overall administration of the objects and functions of the University. In addition, section 72 empowers the University Council to make statutes consistent with the Act to govern its membership, functions, privileges and procedures. This Charter therefore sets out the standard, procedures and guidelines under which the University Council and its Committees shall perform their duties. The Kyambogo University Council Charter is established to guide the conduct of activities in the Council so that the University’s operations can be managed sensitively and responsibly, whilst giving due consideration to its impact on the environment and society; balancing growth with sustainability. The Charter repeals the Kyambogo University Council Guidelines 2011.
