Prof. George Mondo Kagonyera
Chancellor of East African University Rwanda


Ladies and gentlemen, it is my great pleasure on behalf of the Board of Trustees, the University Council, the Senate, management and on my own to welcome you all to this 4th Graduation Ceremony of East African University Rwanda (EAUR).

May I also express my sincere appreciation to the Vice-Chancellor and his Staff, for steering the graduands in their educational and life journey during these defining years, and for continuing to make this University a place of excellence and fine achievements.

Let me take the rare opportunity to inform you graduands that, today as you receive your qualifications, you will hold in your hands the key to the door of your future professional success. This is your achievement but you should always remember the sacrifices others have made to ensure that you stand here today with your head high. As future leaders, I trust that the leadership qualities that you demonstrate, in the future will reflect the values that you have nurtured during your years at East African University Rwanda- the fountain of knowledge and character.

Notice a world beyond yourself and put different values into practice by serving the less fortunate members of our society. Where there is inequality and injustice, please fil it with opportunity and equity. At a time of so much uncertainty and cynicism, let us work even harder to nurturing confidence, hope, optimism and trust as we build our communities and nations, as we nurture our collective competence, and as we challenge and drive out corruption in societies, private and corporate life.

We have prepared you our new alumni to be leaders in society. Everyone educated at EAUR has the potential to become a leader in their chosen area of specialization . You will address effectively the world’s challenges and seize the most exciting opportunities. Indeed, we are counting on you!.

Thank you for making East African University Rwanda stronger. We will always follow your leadership qualities with greater interest wherever you will be. Congratulations once again the graduating Class of 2023.
