Kyambogo University (KYU) was established with the main aim of promoting and advancing knowledge and development of skills in Science, Technology Education and other fields having regard for quality, equity, progress and transformation of society.
The University that now sits on Banda Hill is one of Uganda’s largest public Universities established by the Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions Act 2001 and the Universities and Other Tertiary institutions (Establishment of Kyambogo University) instruments of 2003. It is a merger of the former Uganda Polytechnic Kyambogo (UPK), the Institute of Teacher Education, Kyambogo (ITEK), and the Uganda National Institute of Special Education (UNISE).
Uganda Polytechnic Kyambogo – (UPK)
UPK started in 1928 as a small technical school on the Makerere Hill and was transferred to Kyambogo Hill in 1958 as Kampala Technical Institute. It was renamed Uganda Technical College and finally Uganda Polytechnic, Kyambogo (UPK).
Institute of Teacher Education Kyambogo (ITEK)
Uganda National Institute of Special Education UNISE
UNISE on the other hand started as a Department of Special Education at ITEK in 1988, and later became an autonomous institution by act of parliament in 1998.
The three institutions were merged to form Kyambogo University, the third public university to be established in Uganda.
The monument has existed since the ITEK times.
