LIVINGSTONE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITYLUHISTORYThe LivingStone International University Strategic Plan 2009-2014 was completed December 19, 2007 and submitted to the Uganda National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) with the goal of being chartered as a fully accredited university by the Uganda government. The first step in this process was accomplished December 19, 2008 when the NCHE issued to LIU a Letter of Interim Authority. This allowed LIU to begin buying property, prepare curricula, hire faculty and staff and set up banking and other business tasks. LIU received its Provisional License from the NCHE in March, 2011. This prepared the way for the first student intake in January, 2012.Currently LIU is working under the guidance of the NCHE toward qualifying for a full university charter. On January 16, 2012 the inaugural class of LivingStone International University began with thirty-four students. With the second intake in September 2012, the student body grew to over fifty. As of June 2011 over US$1.4 million had been invested into the development of LIU, the acquisition of the land, and operating funds for the launching of classes.LOCATION

LIU has opened on a leased campus near the center of Mbale, Uganda, approximately 250 kilometres (160 mi), by road, northeast of Kampala, the capital and largest city in that country. LIU plans to occupy this leased campus for a period of up to three years while simultaneously constructing a permanent campus. Fifty-six acres of land have already been purchased just outside of Mbale municipality on the main road that goes west toward Kampala. A campus master plan has been developed, and fund-raising is taking place for eventual construction of LIU’s permanent campus on this site.
