Mount Kenya University Board Of Directors, when the university’s foundation was laid, I was very clear in my mind about what we wanted to do. I note with pride and satisfaction that what started as a dream is slowly being transformed into a reality. This university has a mission it wants to fulfil. We are doing everything possible to improve the existing facilities as well as put up new ones to enhance learning and training.

The new campus directors have taken office. Directors of MKU Kabarnet, Nakuru, Kisii, Kitale, Kisumu and Malindi campuses have reported to their new workstations in line with the recent reshuffles by the office of the Vice-Chancellor. “The reshuffles were meant to strengthen our Campuses and enhance efficiency in service delivery and implementation of Quality Management System,” says the VC Prof. Stanley Waudo.
Dr. Pamela Ochieng formally welcoming Prof. Tom Nyamache, new director, Kabarnet Campus.Board of Trustees Chairman Simon Gicharu says the improvement of service delivery and attendant academic programmes is in tandem with the ongoing improvement of the university’s infrastructure.

The university has also invested billions of shillings in improving physical infrastructure at Thika, Mombasa, Lodwar, Nakuru, Eldoret, Malindi, Kisumu, Kakamega, Kigali and Somaliland campuses. “We will also relocate the MKU School of Law to Parklands, the location of former Kenya School of Professional Studies,” says Mr. Gicharu.
