Often times when one is faced with insurmountable challenges say depression, anxiety, addiction and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), their families, relatives and communities often fail to help them and eventually end up being abandoned and treated as out-casts. Such people may eventually suffer from mental illness and at worst commit suicide.

Dealing with such Psychological problems requires professional, trustworthy and competent organizations that can ably help people cope and eventually overcome their psychological challenges.

I shall always do my best

Nkumba University Library is charged with the responsibility of supporting learning, teaching and research of the University. 

The mission of the School of Sciences is to offer relevant scientific knowledge and skills in research, teaching, and public service for sustainable development. Excellence in research forms the foundation upon which academic programmes flourish and translates to excellence in graduate education and undergraduate experiences. The School is developing stellar academic programmes for discoveries and applications in science and technology and for graduate and under-graduate education.  The research and teaching programmes are serving as an economic engine for the nation and are contributing to development of a college-going culture not only in Uganda but also in the East African region and globally.

 

The vision of the School of Sciences is being the centre of academic excellence by developing multidisciplinary and inter-disciplinary research programmes and innovative undergraduate and graduate curricula, distinguishing itself among established science programmes, providing the best possible preparation for its students as they address the many scientific challenges facing human kind, and by addressing the needs of its stakeholders in the region and globally.

 

Multidisciplinary and inter-disciplinary research programmes are thematically categorized into Applied Mathematical Sciences, Environmental and Evolutionary Sciences, Applied Pure Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics), Management and Technology of Natural Resources, Biomedical Sciences, Physics, and Chemistry. Thematic groupings are emphasizing the commitment of the School administration to research programmes that encourage cooperation and collaboration across disciplines. Thematic groupings acknowledge that finding answers to complex problems often requires multi-disciplinary expertise so that the growth of research programmes is not hampered by disciplinary boundaries.

 

Innovative undergraduate and graduate curricula and foundational courses for science students are highly valued by the School. The school administration is committed to innovative pedagogies that increase the recruitment and retention of students in the sciences. The School has the wonderful opportunity to create and shape curricular programmes and offerings to provide both the scientific breadth and the depth required for graduates in the 21rst century.

 

Providing the best possible preparation for its students as they address the many scientific challenges facing human kind gives enormous opportunities to develop a diverse workforce with a strong science preparation. An appreciation and commitment to diversity at all levels (students, staff and faculty) in the School and across multiple activities are essential for success of students.

 

Contributing to addressing the needs of stakeholders and constituents in Uganda and internationally is in recognition of its responsibility and value to the public. Many young people are being underserved in access to higher education and in reaping the economic and intellectual benefits of a teaching and research university. Graduates of degree programmes are being well-prepared to contribute to solving complex problems that face the nation and the world. Access is the key to personal success in modern society and an important goal is opening doors to higher education to groups that have not traditionally had opportunities in higher education. The research programmes will continue have far reaching implications to advance the health and well-being of humans and the environment, while making fundamental discoveries about the world in which we all live.
