The annual Ndejje University Commencement Lecture’s main goal is to deliver a speech that enthrals the hearts of the graduands and ultimately commissions them into professional transition and the labour world.

The 10th prestigious lecture that precedes the graduation day is set to take place on October 7, 2022, at MTN Arena, Lugogo.

It’s also an occasion to recognize outstanding academic performances and educate graduates on graduation day etiquette.

The graduation ceremony is meanwhile slated for October 14, 2022, at the Luwero-based Main Campus.

In that light, Mr Kakiika Mohammed, Head Teacher at Vienna College, Namugongo, now joins the list of important dignitaries, ranging from entrepreneurs to judicial officers to address and share experiences on becoming successful humans.

The educationist as keynote speaker is expected to draw his conversation along this year’s 24th Graduation ceremony theme: Entrepreneurship and Creativity: Breaking professional boundaries and limitations.

This year’s event presentation is however back to regular practice away from the blended 2021 Commencement Lecture which was physically attended by only 200 people while the majority of students accessed the function by virtual link and the university’s social media platforms due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID challenges also affected the usual October/February graduation seasons forcing the university administration to push the Commencement Lecture to December 2021.

Ndejje University launched the trend of tapping celebrities to speak at graduation Commencement Lectures on October 10, 2014, with Uganda Christian University Faculty Dean of Business Administration Mr Vincent Kisenyi becoming the first speaker.

However, over the past eight editions, their numbers have shot up from university academicians to the flood of business people and judicial officers who have presented keynote addresses during the pre-graduation preparations.

Among the judicial officers to have graced the occasion was the Director of Public Prosecution, Justice Mike Chibita who in 2015 shared his experiences about life and work.

Later businessmen began to creep in among the academics. At first, it was a trickle with MD DFCU Bank Mr Juma Kisaame, lecturing in 2016 followed by Mr Sam Wabasa, Proprietor of Canaan Sites/Hardware Ltd, (2017), Patrick Bitature, CEO of Simba Group of Companies (2018), Mr Danstan Kisuule, CEO Y-save and Finance Management Consultant/trainer (2019) and Mr John Kakungulu Walugembe, Founder OXIDAL/Oxford Green Partnership (2020) and DFCU Bank CEO Mr Mathias Katamba who presided over the 2021 Commencement Lecture on the theme: Creativity And Innovation Beyond Education In Crisis Era.
