WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
Warmest greetings and welcome to the faculty of Education! We are glad you visited our faculty today.
You are at the home of a vibrant unit at Kabale University. The faculty has a large number of students actively enrolled in diverse and contextually relevant programs. Our diverse and rigorous programs are purposely structured to prepare students for real success in the competitive world. These programs are taught out of four departments, namely:
- Department of Foundations of Education;
- Department of Humanities Education;
- Department of Science Education and;
- Department of Open Learning.
Through our programs, our students are trained and equipped with specialized skills in teachings, applied educational research in academic institutions, the civil society, NGOs and government departments.
At the faculty, we greatly value, celebrate and promote diversity which is reflected in the structure of our students and staff fraternity. Our diversity is mirrored in gender, ethnicity, language, nationality, faith, educational level among others. This diversity is reinforced by the University’s strategic location at the confluence of four countries in the great Lakes region of Africa (Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and Democratic Republic of Congo – DRC). As a faculty, we not only rhetorically sing diversity, but we walk and talk diversity! In aligning our objective to the University mission to excel in generation and dissemination of relevant knowledge and skills development for lifelong learning and community service, the faculty of education is establishing through research a unique partnership with the Batwa Indigenous Community. At the crux of the partnership is the motivation to improve quality of formal and Indigenous education for the traditionally marginalized Batwa Community.
The secret to the vibrancy of the faculty is embedded in the very existence of highly qualified staff committed to nurturing our students into competitive, compassionate, caring and skillful educators armed with the theoretical and practical knowledge/skills to address societal challenges. The faculty is committed to cultivating through quality teacher training programs, excellent educators to become teachers, adult educators, innovators, counsellors, community developers etc. In turn, these experts transform the lives of the community within and beyond our national borders. Through our vigorous school practicum program, the faculty provides opportunities for experiential learning hence blending theoretical knowledge with practical education in real life situation to ensure quality. The large students’ enrollment is a testament to the quality of our educational programs and the life changing implications it offers the community.
With great enthusiasm, I encourage you to visit us in person at the main campus on Kikungiri Hill for conversations with our highly motivated staff and talented students. You can also reach us by phone or email using the contacts provided herein. We have no doubt that our programs, being delivered with high degree of professionalism will meet your professional and career expectations.
Henceforth, I invite all prospective students interested in a profession in education and desire for quality instructions in a peaceful and motivating environment to, without hesitation pay us a visit.
