Taking Part in RUFORUM’s First Webinar Series

Published

on

Today I was hosted as one of the panelists of the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Africa (RUFORUM)'s First Webinar Series. The theme for the Webinar was "Learning From A Crisis: University Leaders’ Response To The COVID-19 Pandemic". I discussed how Makerere University has responded to COVID-19 right from when I flagged off the donation of surgical masks to our partners Xiangtan University to our continued support to Government's efforts to fight against this pandemic. I also discussed how we are dealing with the issue of digital divide in the student community.

I thank Prof. Christine Dranzoa, Vice Chancellor, Muni University for chairing the session.
