Prof. Young Gil Lee – VC Kumi University


You are warmly welcome to Kumi University (KUMU).  It is Unique in terms of its History, Location, Vision and Mission. Kumi University was founded by Korean Missionary couple Hyeong Lyeol Lyu and Mrs. Minja Lee in 1999. It developed from Africa Leaders’ Training Institute (ALTI), which was established in 1996 to meet the demands of the local community.

The University was then established:  To provide quality, affordable, community tailored, Christian based higher education.

The Kumi University Foundation was approved by Uganda Government in 2004 with document No. 66491. The University then acquired the operational License the same year with National Council For Higher Education NCHE (UI..PL..002 NCHE). Kumi University is established in the scenic country side of TESO’s spectacular inselbergs, next to the famous Old Stone Age Site Nyero Rock Paintings in Kumi District, Eastern part of Uganda.

The University is in the advanced stages of acquiring the civil charter from the government of Uganda. Once this process is complete, the University will open its gates for higher degree programmes(Masters, PhD….). Currently, the University runs three major study schedules for undergraduate programmes: External for in-service teachers, Week end for busy and/or employed executives, and Full time for direct entrants (O and A) level leavers.

Founded on the Christian Virtues and Values, Kumi University is the perfect answer to your and/or your sons/daughters academic and ethical growth as the values and virtues are part of our integral teaching and learning.

Whether you are an Alumni, a prospective or a student, a guardian, a sponsor of the current student or a member of the community here in Uganda or elsewhere, KUMU is the best place to meet your interest.
No one could have Imagined three decades ago, a place that used to be a bush where hunting, food gathering and where rebels had established themselves would become a center of Excellence, producing students who are very competent enough to transform the lives of Ugandans and organization operations.

Again, I  beseech you be the mercies of God to join us, lets work join hands for humanity.

Thank You.
