Unfortunately, various circumstances impeded the foundation of a university at that time.  This proposal was renewed during the nineteen eighties, and was endorsed by the Uganda Episcopal Conference in 1989. The University was officially launched on March 24th 1991 by His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the President of Uganda. Uganda Martyrs University was chartered on 2nd April 2005, and the first academic year opened on Monday 18th October 1993, the anniversary of the canonization of the Uganda Martyrs.  The University opened with 84 students (28 female and 56 male) from all parts of Uganda. In the recent years we have enrolled more female than male students. Our present student population is 5000. Of these 1500 are resident on campus. 2751 are on distance learning programmes and 753 are for part-time postgraduate courses in Kampala and various other parts of Uganda.  On 18th October 1994, the University was officially opened in the presence of His Excellency President Yoweri K. Museveni, the Uganda Catholic Bishops, the Minister of Education, and a host of friends and well-wishers. Uganda Martyrs University is fully recognised by the Ministry of Education in Uganda and its degrees are conferred autonomously. Objectives of the University:  1. To provide high quality education which will prepare students for their future fields of occupation and service.  2. To cultivate and promote its chosen disciplines and specializations within the context of the knowledge of Christian principles by continually revising its academic and outreach programmes.  3. To encourage the development of individuals of democratic character, virtue, intellect, creativity, self-criticism, wisdom, skill, integrity, acumen, leadership, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance. Our graduates will be encouraged to foster the social, economic, spiritual, and moral development both of the individual and of society.  4. To facilitate the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge and research for the betterment of life in Uganda in particular, and for all humankind in general, in a way which will contribute to the promotion of our cultural heritage and environment.  5. To promote service outreach to the community, especially the vulnerable, poor and marginalised.  6. To create an academic community characterized by the non-negotiable values of service, solidarity, justice and respect for the other.  Our Mission Statement  The vision of Uganda Martyrs University is derived from the Christian understanding of the person. It is committed to the development of each individual through education at all levels, stressing in particular the creation of an environment where intellectual and moral values are priorities.  Since the person is at the centre of all growth and development, both at individual and societal levels, all members of the community respect each other in an attempt to create an environment of openness and trust. The University is committed to promoting justice, respect, solidarity, human rights, equality and environmental protection, both in its own community and in society in general.  The University is committed to providing quality education, while at the same time promoting and living by the non-negotiable values of service and respect. The University community is committed to realising the aims and objectives of the University through democratic processes.  The curricula of the University, which are continually revised to the benefit of the changing needs of society, aim at developing professional people who will combine career competence with a strong sense of moral responsibility and the social values demanded by the challenges of the world today. Students are encouraged to be creative, imaginative, entrepreneurial, and self-critical, through inventive, imaginative, interactive and invitational teaching.  The University stresses the right to academic freedom in its teaching, research and learning processes, while at the same time respecting the cultural heritage of African traditions and values. All students enrolled at the University are required to follow the ethics courses deemed relevant to their course of studies.  The University is committed to serving the community through outreach and community-oriented programmes and initiatives, especially in relation to the marginalised, poor and vulnerable. The dispersal of skills and the sharing of knowledge with the express aim of social transformation, is intended to create mutually beneficial relationships.  The wish to implement practical sustainable development in our local rural setting means that the University is committed to respectful and sound environmental management. We recognise ourselves to be part of the whole biotic community and wish to live in harmony with our environment.  While providing a higher education of quality, within which Christian and human values are priorities, the University upholds its Catholic identity of universality by being open to all regardless of religious affiliation.
