The Graduation ceremony organized to take place at Lira University Main Campus will see more than 300 graduands receive degrees in different academic programmes.

Jane Ruth Aceng, Minister of Gender, Labour and Social services, Hon Betty Amongi, the Government Chief Whip, Hon Hampson Obua, development partners and other leaders.
As a public university we envision being “a Beacon centre of Applied Sciences and Technology” and we shall get there by providing access to quality higher education, professional training, research and innovations for the delivery of appropriate services directed towards community transformation and conservation of biodiversity.
Lira University cherishes professionalism, effectiveness and efficiency, accountability and transparency, team work, gender responsiveness, sensitivity and concern for the elderly and people with disability as our core values.
Unlike other universities, Lira University gives graduates their academic documents (Transcripts and Certificates) on the day of graduation ceremony so that they(graduates) can comfortably compete for job opportunities with immediate effect.
