The Government of the Republic of Uganda (GoU) is expanding its higher education network to address the growing demand for higher education fuelled by the expanding national population projected to reach over 35 million by 2014 and growing regional initiative like the East African Federation framework. The expansion of higher education is in line with GoU strategic Vision 2040 of transforming Uganda into a middle income economy which is supported by skilled labor force.

GoU is investing heavily in science and technology as anchors of economic transformation. To achieve this vision GoU intends to put a lot of effort into building fundamentals which will act as structural elements of the economy. This includes: world class physical infrastructure; ICT infrastructure, Science and Technology, Innovation and Engineering (STIE); and globally competitive human resource (Uganda Vision, 2040). The setting up of Soroti University is one of the efforts towards the realization of that dream. Read More
