DIRECTORATE
RESEARCH AND PUBLICATIONS
AT MWENGE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY

The
Directorate is geared towards improving research, consultancy and publication
capacity of the University to generate and disseminate knowledge that is
responsive to the needs of contemporary society. To implement this goal, the
Directorate consistently organizes trainings on participatory research and
publication techniques and strengthen research and consultancy activities in
the University. The broader purpose is to transform MWECAU into world class
Research University that translates global and regional research initiatives
into local context.

To achieve its goals, the
Directorate thus far managed to conduct numerous trainings for MWECAU academic
staff and students on evolving participatory research and consultancy
techniques. Numerous areas of research have been identified and research topics
and concepts papers for the same have been developed. The process to develop
the high quality journal articles is on-going.

At
the department levels the heads of department have been encouraged and enabled
to organize mini-workshops to academic staff at the faculty and departmental
levels. The purpose is to ensure that not only the academic team at Mwenge
Catholic University are engaging in high quality teaching, assessing and
supervising students, but also conducting rigorous research and disseminating
the findings through publications and academic conferences.
