The study’s goal was to learn more about female student representatives’ experiences in Ugandan university councils. To extract meaning and comprehension from perspectives of involvement levels, the Ladder of Citizen Involvement was employed. Unstructured interviews, transect walks, and letter writing were employed in the study, as well as a two-level narrative analysis technique to extract plots and themes from the stories. According to the findings, female students do not have adequate footing to actively participate in leadership and governance because of several impediments. Among the stated constraints include a lack of proper leadership capacity, limited resources, and gender prejudices. As a consequence, it has been determined that female student representation on Ugandan public university councils were only symbolic! As a result, it is proposed that the higher education sector actively encourage female students to pursue successful leadership positions.
