|Civil Service, Public Administration & Governance
The School is being introduced at the time when Uganda is focusing on development instead of reconstruction and rehabilitation. The development dimension of the country’s strategic focus requires a civil service that promotes instead of directing actions of effective service delivery, democratic leadership and governance, and engagement of both the public and private sectors in development decisions and actions. Thus promoting state accountability to its citizens and international community.
The School of Civil Service, Public Administration and Governance is intended to facilitate this new process through the provision of education, training, and development of the kind of civil service, leadership and governance that can contribute positively to national development.
