He has made the call ahead of the university’s 19th graduation ceremony expected to be held virtually on 6th August 2021 due to ongoing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In a message to graduands, Prof. Edwin Odhuno requested them to uphold integrity and strive for excellence in whatever they do.
“As you go out into the world as graduates, I implore you to be the difference in the face of challenges, in the face of adversity, in the face of impossibilities, you will be the possibility. God bless you and congratulations,” he said.
Prof. Odhuno hailed the courage of 22 graduands who excelled with ‘First Class’ grading.
He also urged 82 more graduands from the Bachelor of Science in Nursing programme to continue working hard.
“To you, specifically, I challenge you to continue working hard in your profession and ensure that all of you pass the licensing examinations with flying colors. I say this because the success of your program is highly regarded in the Republic of Rwanda and beyond,” he stated.
Prof. Odhuno also commended all graduands for tenacity and resilience to overcome societal and individual challenges occasioned by COVID-19.
The university will graduate 458 students in different programs.
Graduands will be bestowed diplomas, bachelor’s, master’s degrees and PhD in various fields including education, health sciences, journalism and mass communication, hospitality and management, information technology and social sciences, nursing, among other disciplines.
