Okwakol ,Dr. Stephen Tikodri , and Mr N. Peter Egwel Odyomo. The office relocated to Gulu in early 2002.

Initially, the University was named Gulu University of Agriculture and Environmental Science and was to specialize in agricultural mechanization. However, it was later proposed that the University should widen its scope beyond agricultural mechanization and produce high level human resource that can effectively participate in solving the social and economic problems of the country. It was then renamed Gulu University. From 2002 the University steadily increased its intake, faculties and programmes due to the demand to satisfy practical needs regionally, nationally, and internationally. The University now has six faculties and two institutes: Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Agriculture and Environment, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Education and Humanities, Faculty of Business and Development Studies, Faculty of Law, Institute of Peace and Strategic Studies, and Institute of Research, Graduate Studies and Staff Development.
