Message from the Vice Chancellor

Assoc. Prof. Aaron MushengyeziI welcome you to the Uganda Christian University (UCU) website.
Our mission and commitment are to “Equip students for productive and holistic lives of Christian faith and service.” The Church of Uganda founded UCU in 1997, to be an authentic Christian university, one of its kind in Uganda at the time, where students would be nurtured to reach their full potential and completeness. The Church pioneered education at primary and high school level decades ago. In founding Uganda Christian University, the Church intended to bridge the gap created between Church-founded Christian schools and Christian higher education to complete the education cycle.

The university inherited the pristine and Edenic campus facilities of the Bishop Tucker Theological College. In 2013, the UCU Main Campus was voted among the 50 most beautiful Christian campuses worldwide. This young university is today spread across Uganda with five campuses to her credit: The Main Campus situated at Mukono, UCU Kampala Campus, UCU Arua Campus, Bishop Barham University College in Kabale and UCU Mbale University College.


Assoc. Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi was born on 24th July 1969 and is married to Patience Rubabinda Mushengyezi. They have four children. Assoc. Prof. Mushengyezi accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour in 1980 and has served the church for decades in several positions such as; member of St. Francis Chapel Council, member of Fathers Union, Chairman of Kigezi-Ankole Anglican Youth Missioners etc.
