Kyambogo University is set to recruit 491 teaching staff after the government approved its new structure that saw the number of faculties and departments at the University increase.
The Vice-Chancellor Prof Eli Katunguka says the new structure led to the split of the old and the creation of new faculties, schools, and departments to take care of the expansion the University has achieved since its establishment.
Faculties and schools have since increased from 6 to 12 hence and departments from 38 to 60.
According to prof Katunguka, this expansion will require an increase in teaching staff from the current establishment of 1,281 to 1,772 and a corresponding decrease in non-teaching staff from 851 to 792.
He notes that the implementation of the new structure will cost the University Shs62.7 billion over five years to implement it.
The revelation was made by Prof Katunguka during the ongoing graduation ceremony that ends tomorrow.
