I warmly welcome you to Center for International Cooperation! It is wonderful to have you here. Thank you for choosing to come and study in Uganda and in particular Kumi University. Uganda is a wonderful country which many have wished to visit and lived in but found it difficult because of their financial limitations; and now you are in the top fast growing private University in Uganda. Glory be to God!
Friends, the university has a unique environment which is very conducive for academic growth. While you are here, I encourage you to strike a healthy balance between your academic activities and your enjoyment of the rich Life Skills Discussions, Christian Fellowships, Sports and Social activities Clubs like the Rotary Clubs, Human Rights Clubs, and Course Associations. Your engagement in these activities and services will make your time at university a special and highly memorable experience.
At Center for International Cooperation (CIC) we get students from a wide range of backgrounds and circumstances; and you will learn so much from each other. I urge you to make sure that you mix with as diverse group as possible; get together, keep together, study together, act together, but don’t walk with people who are not moving in your direction! For the Bible says; “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another,” Proverbs 27:17. Therefore, whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm, (Proverbs 13:20).<script async src=”//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js”>
Beloved friends, CIC provides students the opportunities to work closely with departments in the university through Work and Study Schemes, study independently with faculty, and utilize space and resources provided by the university and CIC. Through these opportunities, students develop intellectual maturity, communication skills, management and administrative skills, time management and teamwork which will enhance students understanding of the work environment.
With this in mind, CIC is committed to providing a welcoming, supportive and safe environment conducive to learning and research, and the development of individuals who display the University values of Godliness and Excellence for Servant-hood. Therefore, at the end of the course you will not only leave the university with only international academic qualification, but you will also leave with friends that you will cherish for a lifetime.
Finally, I would like to assure you of our support in your studies and I am certain that your time at Kumi University through CIC will be enjoyable and fruitful.
God Bless You!
