Prof. Sandra explained that the purpose of their visit was to establish a strong rapport with Nkumba University and gain a comprehensive understanding of the institution before formalizing any engagement, ” It is also prudent for us to understand the institution before any engagement, and that is why we are here.” Said Prof. Sandra.

The team assessed the feasibility of a study exchange program by engaging with students, surveying learning and teaching facilities, and interacting with lecturers.

A courtesy visit to the Vice Chancellor’s office was also on the agenda, where Prof. Jude Lubega expressed gratitude to the delegation for choosing Nkumba University and assured them of his full support. “Thank you for choosing Nkumba University out of the many options at your disposal, I will be rooting for this until we have it running.” Said Prof. Jude. He also commended Dr. Esther for her role in initiating the collaborative discussions.
