Since 2003, the Archdiocese of Mbarara(AoM) has been committed to starting a University as part of its mission and mandate of the church to establish educational institutions of different levels to share in the salvific ministry of Christ by being the salt and light to the world.
In 2009, Archbishop’s pastoral letter on starting University of Saint Joseph Mbarara (USJM) stated “Our decision to start a University must be seen as a pastoral priority which takes into account the growth and developments of our Archdiocese. The university will aim at contributing towards improving the livelihoods of our people.
It fosters for the pastoral mission of the Church: for its academic programmes will be inspired by human and Christian values. We have apropriately chosen a fitting motto of the university namely;”Foster integrity”
Integrity is a characteristic virtue of its patron, Saint Joseph, and we know how much we need it in our personal lives, families, political and socioeconomic sectors”.
