Abstract

 

Community transformation rhetoric by some universities is so unequivocal that one would expect such universities to have institutional policies informing disciplinary activities for the same. Studies focusing this area are glaringly sparse. We investigated how policies inform community transformation activities by disciplinary fields in Gulu University, a public university in Uganda. The study answered the question: how do policies inform community transformation activities by disciplinary fields in Gulu University? A qualitative case study using in-depth interviews and documents check was conducted. Fifteen members of academic and management staff constituted the sample. Findings reveal an institutional policy-disciplinary activity disjuncture. It is recommended that institutional policy should be developed to mainstream community transformation into activities by disciplinary fields in such a university that seeks to transform community to give the university a true community oriented stature
