John Jay Institute Chaplain/Theologian Named Full Professor at Uganda Christian University

KAMPALA, Uganda, ( -- Uganda Christian University is pleased to announce, by action of the University Senate on 5 November 2009, the promotion of the Rev. Dr. Christopher Byaruhanga to the rank of full Professor in the Bishop Tucker School of Divinity and Theology at Uganda Christian University.

UCU Vice Chancellor, The Rev. Professor Stephen Noll, remarked, "UCU follows the British nomenclature by which only a few distinguished academics gain the title professor. Christopher Byaruhanga has progressed over the years since the University was founded by his teaching, his administration, and his scholarship writing to be the first to receive that rank and honour. We know he will not be the last to be so honoured, but he will retain the credit of being the first. To God be the Glory!"

The Rev. Dr. Byaruhanga is currently participating in a year-long academic fellowship as a visiting Chaplain and Theologian in residence at the John Jay Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Alan Crippen, President of the John Jay Institute added, "I am very pleased that our good friend, Fr. Christopher, has been duly honored with this professorship. It is a well-deserved honor as I can attest to his hard work and dedication to scholarly excellence in all his academic pursuits. He is a welcomed and valued member of the faculty at the Institute this year. We will certainly miss him as he returns to UCU later next year to re-assume his teaching post as a full professor. My congratulations!"

The John Jay Institute is a para-academic center that is headquartered in Colorado Springs. Its mission is to prepare Christians for principled public leadership. More information about the Institute is available online at:
