Mandate

Primary tabs

The mandate of CLL is summarized in its motto: “Taking the University to the community and bringing the community to the University” which can be seen in terms of its efforts in:

  • Bridging the gap between individual who are unable to come to the University through the intra-mural programmes with the University community
  • Making University learning relevant to the community through identifying their learning needs and designing as well as offering problem-solving programmes in a flexible and non-formal manner; and
  • Promoting partnerships and collaborations with development agencies for technology/knowledge transfer.

In order to realize its nation-wide mandate, CLL has 9 regional offices namely: Arua, Fort portal, Gulu, Hoima, Jinja, Kabale, Kampala, Lira and Mbale. Currently, Fort Portal and Jinja have full-fledged campus status and no longer restrict their activities to community training programmes of CLL. Due to the overwhelming demand of the services of CLL, many other Community Learning Centres have been opened in various districts throughout Uganda. Some of these include centres located in: Bushenyi, Ishingiro, Ibanda, Ntungamo, Masaka, Wakiso, Mutyana, Mubende, Nebbi, Koboko, Moyo, Alebtong, Abim, Patong, Kitgum, Namayingo, Iganga, Butaleja, Soroti, Ngora etc. Communities who are unable to come to Kampala are therefore advised to seek services of CLL in the named centres.
