The university’s motto, ‘Recte Sapere Fons’ which means ‘For Knowledge and Sound Judgement’ is also a guiding principle for the university.

Gender Policy

Gender Policy (GP)
 
Gender equity is increasingly prioritized as an indicator of development and global acceptance in networks of higher education. The quality and effectiveness of an institution is, in part, judged by its gender sensitivity at global level. U I’s Gender Policy provides an institutional framework for all programmes and projects so that all stakeholders in the community can benefit from the initiative. It provides the bench- mark by which the laws governing the institution, relations between members of the university community, its activities in research, teaching, resource mobilization, welfare services and community involvement will be evaluated.
