Description
GENERAL FACTS ABOUT IUIU-FM RADIO

The Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU) is an International University established by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in 1988 under a bilateral agreement between the Government of Uganda and the OIC. The Parliament of Uganda enacted a law (Cap 131) in 1990 that legally empowered the establishment of the University that has now grown into four campuses.

BACKGROUND OF IUIU-FM RADIO
We live in an information age where mass media play an important role in shaping world views. The media have been used to mobilize populations towards positive and negative causes across history. In Uganda, about 80% of the population has access to radio and it remains the most suitable medium for information dissemination due to its potential to penetrate rural communities. Realizing the power that the media possess in setting the national and international agendas, IUIU started a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communication in 1995 and has now established an FM Radio Station to boost the communication and journalism training among other objectives.

VISION
