"In graduation speeches, the Vice-Chancellor’s role is to give accountability to the public on activities implemented in the University indicating; the statistics of graduands, achievements registered, partnerships and collaborations of the institution, infrastructure development, appreciation of all stakeholders for the contribution made to the growth and development of the institution, challenges encountered and the future plans".
It is my pleasure to inform our stakeholders about the strides Bishop Stuart University has made over the years under my leadership as the Vice-Chancellor. This book clearly gives an account of all graduation speeches from the time I started my duty journey with the University from 1st May 2014 to date. Eight graduation ceremonies have been held during my tenure starting with the 10th graduation that was held on 10th October 2014.
I believe that this book will be helpful to the Board of Trustees, Senior Management, Senate, University Council, Government, Development partners, graduates, staff, parents and guardians, stakeholders and the community at large in understanding the role of Bishop Stuart University in the development of the nation and beyond through its vision “To be a University for recreating society with Academic Excellence, entrepreneurship and Christian Values.”, and well as its mission of producing multi-sectorial leaders/operators, who know the way, show the way and go the way.
I sincerely appreciate all students who have graduated from BSU since 2014 upon your successful completion of
different Academic Programmes that have led to the accomplishments reflected in this book. To all parents and guardians as well as sponsors, we thank you very much for all the sacrifices you have made in raising tuition over the years for the graduates of this great institution.
I would like to acknowledge the role played by the Chancellor, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Fred Sheldon Mwesigwa and the current Chairperson University Council, Prof. Kenneth Kagame for their enabling leadership and guidance towards the development of this book. I also thank BSU Academic Staff, Administrative Staff and Support Staff for administering and implementing University activities which annually resulted in the graduation of students during my tenure.
I wish to acknowledge the contribution of Prof. Laban Erapu, the Professor of Literature who is also in-charge of publications and printing press. Ms. Ankunda Emily, Administrator in charge of projects and partnerships in VC’s Office who compiled the Speeches from 2014 to 2022 and Mr. Mugumya Norman, Public Relations Office, for graphics and final layout of the book. Thank you for your efforts in this process.
I sincerely thank all other stakeholders who have participated in various capacities to ensure this book is a success. Thank you for your contribution and commitment to this cause. BSU hopes that this book will be informative for policy decisions.
