You may be familiar with the "Kony 2012" video that calls attention to the devastating conflict in northern Uganda. What you may not know is that for several years, Walsh University students and faculty have been involved in projects in northern Uganda, the area victimized by the LRA. Our graduate students and faculty have been involved in training local employees in the Diocese of Gulu to provide grief counseling and conflict resolution to this war-torn region.

Additionally, a team of faculty from Walsh University is involved in the development of a new university in Gulu which the local bishop has founded. Walsh is consulting on curriculum development, administration, and facilities for the new university.

Also, since 2007, in southern Uganda, Walsh undergraduate students and faculty have directed a project which provides monetary loans to women in the Ziika Village so that they can establish their own sustainable business.

Walsh also offers a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership to local Ugandan students. We currently have 125 Ugandans enrolled in the program. This offers Ugandans an opportunity to bring the best practices in educational administration to their home schools and districts without incurring the expense of traveling and studying in the U.S.
