    Vice-chancellor's Message

    Prof. Peter Mbithi, Vice-Chancellor

    The 2014 Annual Report is a statement of the status of the University during the year, detailing issues of research, publications, staff postings and physical infrastructure. The University has continued to discharge its core mandate as guided by the 2013-2018 Strategic Plan, in pursuit of its vision of A World Class University committed to scholarly Excellence.

    As the premier institution of higher learning in Kenya, the University has continued to offer quality education and training that meets the expectations of industry and the general populace. This is evident from the huge array of programmes on offer, which are built within curricula that is prepared in consultation with Industry. The University has also risen to the challenge of Kenyas Vision 2030 in terms of offering Kenyans greater opportunities for transiting to University, and ultimately, making a significant contribution in turning Kenya into a middle income economy.

    The report also details the Universitys financial performance during the year, which show a financial state of good health. The good performance of the University is attributed to the commitment and dedication of staff who worked tirelessly to support management in achieving University objectives. Within the year a lot of support, direct and in kind, was received from the government, donors, sponsors, alumni and other stakeholders.

    2014 was also the year of transition as we bid goodbye to the outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Prof. George Magoha and welcome the seventh Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi in January 2015.

    Kindly give us feedback not only on the issues dealt herein, but on others which we can cover next time. This will assist us in improving service delivery to our clients, customers and the public.
