Makerere University Alumni Overview

Makerere University has brought together and trained students from different parts of the world with a broad-spectrum of backgrounds. Our Alumni have healed the sick, laid the foundations for our industries, and inspired us through literature, music and art. Today, Makerere University is educating the students and recruiting the scholars who will build not only Uganda’s future but that of other countries as well. Over the years, this mix of cultures, interest and knowledge has created a wealth of both social and academic bonds.

Makerere University has established a Development Office whose main task will be to diversify the University’s resource base. The Development Office is comprised of two key functions; Alumni Relations and Prospect Research, both of which aim to cultivate and promote lasting ties between graduates, friends and future development partners of Makerere University. The alumni desk has been established to organise and coordinate Makerere University Alumni through a comprehensive Alumni database.
