KIU, Western Campus – KIU Western Campus finalist students in the Faculty of Education, Faculty of Business and Management, Faculty of Science and Technology and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences can now resume school after the respective faculties opened today, October 15.
This is in line with the announcement from President Yoweri Museveni last month that allowed finalist university students pursuing courses other than Health Sciences to resume school on October 15.
At KIU Western Campus, some students have started reporting, with some students especially from the School of Engineering seen visiting their school building albeit while following the strict measures put in place by the University COVID-19 taskforce to adhere to the Ministry of Health SOPs.
In the same vein, the returning students will undergo an orientation tomorrow October 16 on how to adhere to the SOPs put in place at the university to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19.
During the KIU Western Campus COVID-19 task force meeting held today in the KIU Teaching Hospital boardroom, Assoc. Prof. Lydia Emuron (in the picture), the Assistant Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Finance and Administration (ADVC-F&A)requested for massive publicity for the training exercise.
“The students should be informed and publicity should be done so that all the students are oriented. Most of them think they know these things but they may not actually know everything,” Prof Emuron said.
“The orientation programme for students and the staff for the returning faculties should be widespread,” she added.
The Dean of Student Affairs (DSA), Maureen Asiimwe promised to ensure that the students are well informed about the orientation exercise and also follow the SOPs once classes have resumed.
