The plight and failures of the academic staff in public universities.

Kasozi, A.B.K.

Abstract:
The quality of a university institution is, largely, determined by the quality of its academic staff.For them to perform their roles, staff morale and conditions of work must be good. The morale of the academic staff is always depressed if they are underpaid, overworked, do not have attractive work packages, among others. The genesis of this paper is on the plight and failures of academic staff working in public (state owned) universities in Uganda. Using the term professoriate to refer to all branches of the academic profession and those who constitute it, the paper explores the functions and the problems the professoriate face globally. It narrates the difficult working conditions in public universities in Uganda that leads to brain drain. It throws some light on some of the failures of the academic staff and concludes by providing some useful suggestions.
