Private universities in Uganda: growth and role(s) in the provision of higher education.

Mugabi, Henry

Abstract:
Private universities are by far the fastest growing aspect of higher education in Uganda yet, they remain among the least understood institutions - admired and maligned equally. Policymakers and the public often hold simple views of private universities and their roles while those associated with private universities tend to generalize from their own institutions. Therefore, this paper analyses the role(s) that private universities play in the provision of higher education. The paper is underpinned by empirical data from a case study research of Uganda Christian University; national documents on higher education; public access information from private universities; and theoretical data from theories of non-profit organisations as well as review of international literature on private higher education.
