The institution made the announcement via its Facebook page.
“Welcome aboard Goodluck Jonathan as you take over as the Chancellor of CUU. We look forward to this new era and achieving great things under your leadership. Success begins at Cavendish!”, it read.
The private university, in existence since 2008, is among the top-ranked in Uganda and in Africa. CUU held its first graduation ceremony in November 2011.
Former Zambian President, the late Kenneth Kaunda used to be the Chancellor.
Since leaving office in 2015, Jonathan has been honoured with several appointments, awards and speaking events.

Last Saturday, President Muhammadu Buhari hailed Jonathan as an “astute mediator” and congratulated him “for his untiring efforts” on the Mali situation.
