Local universities urged to embrace global collaboration

The assistant commissioner (public universities) in Uganda’s Ministry of Education and Sports, Timothy Musoke Ssejjoba, has urged local universities and institutions of higher learning to embrace co-operation and memorandums of understanding with international universities to open doors of opportunities to Uganda, writes Roland D Nasasira for the Daily Monitor.

Ssejjoba made the call on Wednesday 29 March at ISBAT University in Kololo while witnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Somaville University based in Somalia and ISBAT University in Uganda.

“When we see such levels of co-operation between institutions in different countries, it means the relationship between Somalia and Uganda is being cemented further. When people work together, governments can change but the relationship cannot go away because it goes beyond personalities,” Ssejjoba said. “We welcome this cooperation between the two institutions and look forward to more.”
