It was a hilarious moment when the department welcomed Professor Chalmer Thompson and Professor Barbra Denis from Indiana University.
Chalmer and Barbra have been long term colleagues for the department and have assisted in the development of Masters programme courses taught in the department and engaging the department members into different research activities.

They arrived in Uganda in early September and spent over two months with the department members, brought up a new research grant proposal whose writing is underway, engaged in activities of reviewing the ongoing counselling programs, taught the graduate students especially professor Chalmer who taught them critical psychology course and qualitative research methods course units.
