DOI: Adult and non-formal education has been apparently much neglected aspect of educational activities in the country. This neglect could be traced to our colonial heritage where the British colonial masters and the early missionaries who pioneered education in the African continent paid attention only to formal education to train clerks and interpreters in Government service and commercial houses; and catechists in the church.

Education is the most powerful thing that a person can have. Education is not an important thing just for a person but for a whole city or country. The base of education comes from the family and then continues in other phases. Schools and others educational institutions define the basic framework of education. Being educated it is not just gaining knowledge, education builds a character also leads to a better future.
Throughout the world universities are expected to change to match changes in their host environment. In the developed world the value of higher education is often questioned for resources expended, while in developing countries education institutions are particularly valued for the contribution they can make towards national development. Universities in Africa have attempted to meet demands for relevance without basic alterations in academic styles, organization, governance or for most part in curricula. Herein lies the dilemma. This study investigates the role of Makerere University's contribution to the national development of Uganda.
Education is a vital investment for human and economic development and is influenced by the environment within which it exists. Changes in technology, labour market patterns and general global environment, all require policy responses. Traditions, culture and faith all reflect upon the education system and at the same time are also affected by them. The element of continuity and change remains perpetual and it is up to the society to determine its pace and direction. We are living in an inquiring and innovation-oriented society.
Since the s scholars have spent much time exploring the relationship between education and educational research, on the one hand, and several aspects of national development, whether economic, social, cultural or political, on the other. The entries in this section all contribute to the still on-going discussion about the importance and role of research in improving educational outcomes and promoting wider social and economic goals. The entries also take a regional perspective, centred on the contribution of educational research in the Asia-Pacific region. What emerges clearly from the entries is the fact that there is an international dimension to all educational research. Even if much fruitful research is undertaken at a micro level, with a focus on locally defined problems and engaging teachers in specific schools or classrooms, such studies still form part of a larger and multi-layered tapestry, and they all, in one way or another, draw on and also contribute to the international body of knowledge of education.
