Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) is a faith-based private University owned by the Episcopal Conference of the Catholic Bishops of Uganda. UMU acknowledges the late Archbishop Kiwanuka as the Father of Catholic higher education in Uganda.
It (UMU) is located at Nkozi hill, 82 km west of Kampala, the Capital of Uganda, on the Kampala-Masaka highway. The concept of a Catholic University in Uganda dates back as far as the nineteen forties, when the late Archbishop Joseph Kiwanuka conceived the idea. Unfortunately, various circumstances impeded the foundation of a university at that time. This proposal was renewed during the nineteen eighties, and was endorsed by the Uganda Episcopal Conference in 1989. Consequently, the University was officially launched on 24th March 1991 by His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the President of Uganda.
