Bukalasa Agricultural College Background
Bukalasa Agricultural College, is a public tertially training institution operated and administered under the Uganda Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF). It is situated 50 km north of Kampala; it was established by the then Colonial Government in 1929 as a cotton breeding centre. It has since then metamorphosed into an agricultural training college with a strong reputation of training front line agricultural extension workers as well as a home to many household names of academicians, administrators, researchers, and impeccable leaders.
Recently international students are getting attracted to the college to pursue various academic programmes, thus widening the scope of the institution in coverage. The college wishes to ensure that the original mandate is not lost, and at the same time rise to the challenges of satisfying needs of the expanding clientele. This situation is covered in the Vision, Mission, Core Values and Objectives below.
