Uganda Christian University (UCU) provides "A Complete Education for A Complete Person." What does this mean? Few universities in the region emphasize a holistic education. UCU integrates physical, social, emotional, and spiritual growth with traditional academics.
For example, UCU provides compulsory "foundation studies" courses in ethics, world views, mathematics, research and writing, health and wholeness, basic computing, and theology.
UCU boasts nationally ranked sports teams including men’s and women’s basketball, football, and volleyball. UCU hosts over 60 active clubs on campus, many of which perform in community service outside the University.
Campus life programmes also lead in Uganda, with all first year students required to stay in supervised housing. UCU launched Uganda’s first Resident Assistant programme to mentor young students. UCU offers the only student newspaper in the region.
The Chaplaincy provides regular worship and fellowship opportunities and week-long conferences each semester. Counselling services are available to all in the UCU community, and they train both staff and students to be "peer counsellors."
