The CHUSS Center of Excellence in Research, Teaching and Learning (CERTL) is hosting A New Hires orientaion workshop on December 7, 2022, at 8:00AM at the Yusuf Lule CTF Auditorium. The workshop will provide this cohort with the tools and information they need to become productive members of the academic team.
The MUASA-CHUSS ARENA is a social platform for academic staff of Makerere University in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. This forum was established as part of the MUASA (Makerere University Academic Staff Association) structures for faculty interaction on matters of their interest within the college. The “Arena” description of this platform is inspired by the concept of the African traditional arts performance stages and their functions in shaping the desired citizen. Community arenas are spaces for free expression of any ideas without fear of being judged, as well as accommodate diversity without censorship. As champions of humanities and social sciences education in Uganda, the CHUSS Arena provides us yet another stage outside the traditional classrooms and office spaces for informal expression of our humanity and recreation. The forum is coordinated by Dr. Milton Wabyona, who is the MUASA College Representative for CHUSS, but also the Chair of the Public and External Relations Committee for MUASA.
The launch of the CHUSS Arena will mark the beginning of a college-wide physical interaction of its members for this cause. We believe this initiative will further enhance cohesion among our membership and facilitate even more meaningful communal engagements and support. The theme for the launch is: “Campus Catch up – Off the Books!” Different staff members from different generations will share some of their memorable campus social life experiences from when they joined Makerere University as students or as junior staff. As we commemorate 100 years of Makerere University’s existence, this activity will also contribute to recounting and reminiscing of the campus social life experiences and how they have shaped life on the ivory tower. The event will also include performance interludes such as karaoke, mimes, dancing, poetry etc. by faculty from all schools of the college. We hope to continue this tradition in a regular periodical practice at appropriate intervals.
The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) is organizing the 2nd CHUSS Conversations on the theme: Humanities and social sciences: 100 years back; 100 years forward scheduled for Thursday, 19th May, 2022 at CTF 2 Auditorium, Makerere University.
The 2nd CHUSS Conversations will bring together former faculty of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) to share and reflect on their experiences at Makerere University as the university celebrates its 100 years of existence.
The panelists are also expected to share their projections of the humanities and social sciences for the next one hundred years and the role of humanities and social sciences in contemporary Africa.
The conversations will cover a variety of topics, including leadership and mentorship in the humanities and social sciences; curriculum development and design, and the future of BA Arts and humanities; academic publications, ICT and welfare in the humanities and social sciences; and inter-disciplinarity in the humanities and social sciences.
We look forward to receiving you and hearing from you on the humanities and social sciences at Makerere University.
