Career guidance, the missing link

The Ag. DVCFA and Principal College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology (CEDAT)-Prof. Henry Alinaitwe (R) with stakeholders from his college at Kabira Country Club Bukoto

There is an urgent need to come up with policy guidelines and deliberate efforts by all stakeholders in ensuring that our students get career guidance.

During a meeting held to undertake self-appraisal as to what the University and respective Colleges were doing as far as career guidance was concerned, it was realized that although some activities were ongoing, these were adhoc.

The meeting therefore borrowing from the practices in the Mastercard Foundation Scholars program was aimed at generating ideas on strengthening career services.  It brought on board over 70 participants who included Members of Management, College Principals, Deans of Schools, Heads of Departments, Directors of Units, College Principal Communications Officers and Web Administrators, Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program (MCFSP) staff, Counseling and Guidance Center (CGC) staff, as well as the Public Relations Office of the University.
