KCU academic year 2023/2024 dedication day highlights
On a bright Thursday, September 14th, King Ceasor University community gathered for a special ceremony, one that marks the beginning of a new academic journey. The occasion was the dedication of the academic year 2023-2024 to God, and it was a day filled with reflection, prayer, and a deep sense of unity.
The ceremony, which took place at noon on the University rooftop, was presided over by the University Chaplain and Dean of Students, Fr. Dr. Aloysius Gonzaga Lumala. As we stood together, prayers were offered for the University Leadership, lecturers, all staff, students, and even our cherished sister institution, St. Augustine International School. New members in our community, including students and staff, were specially recognized. It was a moment to recognize and appreciate the diverse tapestry of our academic family.Under the theme, “The Family That Prays Together Stays Together,” we collectively sought God’s blessings for all our endeavors and aspirations. One particular hope echoed throughout the gathering: the acquisition of the University charter. We firmly believe that with faith and unity, our goals will be realized.
Dr. Charity Basaza Mulenga, our esteemed Vice Chancellor, wholeheartedly endorsed this day of consecration for our university, studies, and all activities to God. She commended the University Chaplain and everyone involved in arranging this dedication day. It was suggested that this heartwarming tradition becomes a part of KCU’s culture, observed at the beginning of each new academic year, binding us closer together in faith and purpose.
Our reflections on this day were grounded in the wisdom of scripture passages from Prophet Ezekiel 33:7-9, Romans 13:8-10, and Matthew 18:15-20 urging us to support each other emphasizing the importance of care, concern, and love for one another. These teachings reinforced our commitment to a harmonious academic community.
Fr. Aloysius urged students to take full advantage of university resources, respect diversity, take responsibility for their behavior, comply with university policies, and above all, prioritize their love and reverence for God, recognizing that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom..

The preliminary rounds witnessed fierce competition, with teams demonstrating their mastery over legal principles and articulating their arguments with precision and poise. The judges were impressed by the depth of knowledge displayed by the participants, as well as their ability to think on their feet and respond to challenging questions. After intense deliberation, IUIU emerged as the champion of the competition, showcasing exceptional teamwork, legal acumen, and advocacy skills. Their outstanding performance reflected the hours of rigorous preparation and dedication invested in the competition.
In addition to the overall champions, several individual awards were also presented to participants who exhibited exemplary skills in areas such as oral advocacy, legal research, and overall presentation. These awards served as a testament to the diverse talents and strengths displayed by all participants.
The competition not only provided a platform for students to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical setting but also fostered a spirit of camaraderie and sportsmanship among participants. It served as a reminder of the critical role that legal education plays in shaping future advocates and champions of justice. A team of our King Ceasor University law students were in attendance throughout the moot competitions and this left them with knowledge and experience of court proceedings.
