The pull-out has as its leading voice an interview with the First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports, Hon. Janet Kataaha Museveni, with the rallying call “We must be masters of our future”.
The pull-out also features an article by the Chairperson of Council, Mrs. Lorna Magara entitled “Our future is research”. Therein, she discusses Makerere University‘s focus to transform into a research-led university as outlined by the Strategic Plan 2020-2030.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe then outlines the reforms being undertaken in the University based on findings that “No organisation can run efficiently and effectively without the appropriate governance structures. This is even more important for a complex organisation like Makerere University, with multiple stakeholders and numerous international links and partnerships.”
