We are pursuing a cost-benefit analysis study on a school
expansion project to find out if a University can be founded on the
values of Lira Integrated School
We have the pleasure to announce that Team Uganda is off
with a great start to their project! We started with a
meeting at 7 am with the Principal of the School of Veterinary Science at
Makarere University, who gave us some great insight on the approaches we can
take to this education project. We then went to Kyambogo University where
Alejandra had a contact that happens to be a U of M graduate (yay!). The Deputy
Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs was delighted to have us and provided some
practical advice on the process of starting a university from nothing; he was
quite nostalgic of Minnesota and the U.S. after a short break we went to Uganda
Christ University, which is a private institution about 45 mn outside of town.
