“..as a University were tasked with seeing to it that the event didn’t stop at being a mere signing event but have to strive to see that the aspirations and provisions in the memorandum of understanding are fulfilled.”
The University signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Youth Fellowship(IYF) in an arrangement that will see MRU University work hand in hand with the IYF a South Korean organisation that promotes mindset change education.
The event had the IYF President Dr. Hun Mok Lee sign on behalf of IYF and the MRU Vice Chancellor Prof. Vincent Kakembo sign on behalf of MRU ,while Mr. Vincent Kityamuweesi Musubiire was the principal witness to the signing of the MOU.
Dr. Hun Mok Lee first delivered a Mindset Change Lecture presentation on Power Point in which he showed where Korea was coming from and where it is today. He gave examples of people who were faced with insurmountable odds in history like the greatest inventor ever Thomas Edison and the greatest painter ever Pablo Picasso and how their positive thinking and that of the people around them helped them overcome those challenges.
The Vice Chancellor on his part said we as a University were tasked with seeing to it that the event didn’t stop at being a mere signing event but have to strive to see that the aspirations and provisions in the memorandum of understanding are fulfilled. He also revealed that we are the only Private University in the country that was included in the programme and that all the rest are Public Universities.
Mr Kityamuweesi Musubiire the Principal Private Secretary to the Vice President of Uganda said he ensured that MRU was included in the IYF’s country programmes because he believes a University named after the person accredited with the advent of formal Education in Uganda should be at the forefront of all Education related initiatives in the country.
The event was attended by officials from the Vice President’s Office, officials from IYF and the Korean embassy, University Management and Guild Leaders from Kakeeka.
