The University’s Vice Chancellor, Dr. Krishna N Sharma, who was present at the event noted that the international day will help in bringing exposure to students.
“As Victoria University, we want to bride exposure to students so that they can seat in a classroom and talk about a certain policy not only how it can be applied in Uganda but also talk about how it can be applied in different countries,” Sharma said.
Sharma added that basing on the fact that we live in a global village, cross pollination of knowledge is the whole essence of a University.
“University is all about cross pollination of knowledge, its all about the exposure. Human beings we now live in a global village, where we can go to any country to work, to study, we must learn how to respect any culture.” Sharma advised.
