Nkumba University was stablished in 1994 as part of a group of schools and colleges that originally grew from a kindergarten, The University reminisces of a valued history reflected in the thoughtfulness of great individuals whose dream was to build their community through academic prowess with compassion.
On 29 July 1952, Ssalongo Kintu a local merchant invited two of his friends; Charles Kisitu Ffulu, and Zefania Mpanga for a meeting. This meeting led to the establishment of a kindergarten for their infants.
They believed that , to nurture anything to mature fruition, they needed to start at a tender stage- infantry, and indeed on 6 February 1952, the kindergarten opened with twelve pupils at Ffulu’s home. It grew into a primary school which thrived to become a junior secondary school and later a senior secondary school. In 1969, the school became a vocational institute and name changed to Nkumba College of Commerce and Advanced Studies in 1974.
With a formidable track record of prolific academic excellence, Nkumba has stood the test of time becoming a shrewd arena of great academicians, a game hub for over 10 sports disciplines, pouring over 1,000 graduates into the job market every year. Nkumba University is an institution to reckon with.
