Kyambogo University Vice-Chancellor Prof. Eli Katunguka has announced that the university will hold its 17th graduation ceremony between 21-23 September 2021.
In a letter dated August 1, 2021, Prof. Katunguka said that the ceremony will be held virtually with a very minimal physical presence, due to the COVID-19 regulations on gatherings.
“Senate at its meeting held on Friday 30, July 2021, decided to hold the 17th Graduation from 21 – 23 September 2021. It will be virtual,” the letter reads in part.
The professor directed all Deputy Vice-Chancellors of the different departments, deans and department heads to start preparations for the convocation.
The university did not hold its annual graduation ceremony last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and final year students did not know when they would graduate.
Professor Katugunka said that he will be overseeing the arrangements, “Parents and students have waited for this for a long time and I thank Senate for taking a stand.”
The university registrar is now expected to release a new program that will be followed by the graduands in the run-up to the September graduation.
