HISTORY

Lira University was established as a Public University by Statutory Instrument No. 35, July 8th ,2015 to expand equitable higher education in the country. It was not set up just as another Public University in Uganda but Lira University to respond to the critical development needs. This is underscored by the type of programmes that are drawn to run in the University. We have identified Public Health of the community and the safety of lives at birth as areas where an intervention is critically needed. It is therefore not by guess work that our first programmes are addressing Public, Maternal and Neonatal health. It was also established on a niche of training students in Health Sciences. It has the first University Teaching Hospital in Uganda. The University has a fully-constituted Council, Senate, Appointments Board and other Committees to run its affairs.
