The university has organised the reunion of its alumni and stakeholders to come up with ways of transforming the institution.
Mkapa studied at the university and graduated in 1962 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.
Addressing journalists at the Media Centre in Kampala yesterday, the university spokesperson, Gilbert Kadilo, said Mkapa will deliver a lecture on â€œThe Role of the Alumni and the Academia in the Development of Institutions.â€
President Yoweri Museveni and the First Lady will also host Mkapa to a dinner where the university expects its alumni to contribute towards the construction of a high-rise convocation tower, restocking the library and give the university hospital a face-lift.
