About US:
Uganda Christian University was founded when the historic Bishop Tucker Theological College was promoted as a university in 1997.

International partnerships were part of the College’s missionary history. The Church Mission Society teamed with Ugandan leaders and others to assure the College had the necessary intellectual and other capital.
