Kindly see some news below from the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) which may be beneficial.
Recent highlights of ACU activities include: signing an important agreement with the Commonwealth Secretariat to boost the impact of international higher education on social and economic development initiatives; winning a contract to run the Partnership for Enhanced and Blended Learning (PEBL), a programme addressing critical academic staff shortages in many east African universities; and awarding 11 ACU Titular Fellowships for staff at member universities to undertake research, develop skills, and share ideas.

This week (from Nov 13), 20 member representatives are in South Africa for a high level international seminar on how higher education can meet the changing needs of employment, and next month we will be holding a residential school in Malaysia for students as part of our Respect campaign.
We're particularly pleased to announce the launch of the Commonwealth Rutherford Fellowships, offering opportunities for researchers from across the Commonwealth to undertake post-doctoral study in the UK.
Finally, we will welcome new members of our Council to the UK next week for our annual general meeting – it was great to meet with Professor Chakma, our new Chair, in Canada last month and explore collaboration opportunities there. I am keen to continue meeting as many members as possible to keep learning from and helping our fantastic network.



The Department of Moral Theology organized a seminar on November 22 under the theme "Our Intellectual Apostolate as African Scholars: Focus on Research and Writing". The guest speaker was Rev. Prof. Laurenti Magesa.
Rev.Prof.Laurenti Magesa is a priest of the Catholic Diocese of Musoma in Tanzania. He holds a PHD and Doctorate in Theology from St. Paul University Ottawa, Canada. He is currently teaching at Hekima School of Theology and Tangaza College.

In the seminar he led a discussed on:

1. An intellectual apostolate is part of the Church's mission in spreading the Christian faith in Africa.
2. For African scholars, there is a necessity of continuous research, reading, writing and publication.
3. Modern scholars should develop a habit of inquiry and of question in order to seek more knowledge to develop Africa.
4. Theology is contextual; therefore theological reflection on current moral pastoral issues is vital so as to arrive at relevant answers.
5. Despite rapid changes, an African scholar should never lose the Tradition of the Church and positive African values in responding to contemporary issues.

Some of the publications he has published include:

African Religion:The Moral Traditions of Abundant Life(1997)

Anatomy of Inculturation:Transforming the Church in Africa(2004)

What is Not Sacred? African Spirituality(2013)

The seminar was held at Learning Resource Center, Auditorium room 6. The seminar was open to both staff and students of CUEA. The seminar started at 11:00 am and ended at 1 pm.


Due to directives from the Commission for University Education (CUE) to the extent that they do not recognise School Focused (SF) Programmes, our SF programmes will become Part Time Programmes.

More details, pertaining to the operations of the new programme will be communicated to the students once they report to the University on December 4, 2017.

We thank you for making CUEA a University of choice to pursue your respective degrees.
