Colourful 10th Graduation Ceremony held

The 10th Graduation Ceremony was held on Friday 11th March 2022. The colourful ceremony was live-streamed from the Main Hall. The event was presided by Dr Angelina Kinya, a Council member, who was installed as Acting Chairperson of Council and Pro-Chancellor for a period of three months.

Dr Kenya noted that in a world where technology was advancing rapidly, online digital platforms have become the new way of connecting independent experts and potential customers. “Young ambitious individuals have ventured and invested heavily in it, which has seen them become successful overtime.” More than 1400 graduands were awarded degrees and diplomas in various disciplines. Dr Kinya advised the graduands to take advantage of the digital era we are witnessing where “Gig Economy” has become a common phrase. “Do not just sit back and expect a job to come knocking on your door, even as you look for relevant jobs based on your discipline, turn that hobby of yours into an income generating venture,” she said.

The CS, Prof. George Magoha, was represented by Mr. Fredrick Ndambuki, the Secretary in charge of Administration at the Ministry of Education. In his speech, the CS noted that his Ministry was ready to work with universities to pool resources for expansion and development of infrastructure required to meet the needs of the increasing number of students. In addition, he urged local universities to adequately prepare relevant programmes for Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) learners who in the next few years will be seeking admission.

And to the graduands, the CS encouraged them to take up scholarship opportunities that are normally and publicly announced in the press to advance their studies.  “There are opportunities for further education through government and foreign government scholarships. Be on the look out and take advantage of such leverage to advance your studies,” he said.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof Francis Aduol noted that the university had fully integrated into digital learning, a strategy that was put in place due to Covid-19 and has since become the new normal. He exuded confidence that the lecturers and students had adapted well and had made learning much easier and convenient. “The university is conscious to the developing needs of the nation and the Agenda Four framework. We are fully committed to working with the Government to achieve this objective,” noted the VC. Prof Aduol said the University had been able to benchmark with the best due to its collaborative nature within academia to ensure the programmes are of global quality standards, in turn improving the institution’s global ranking.
Prof. Aduol appreciated the Ministry of education for its funding and also the Council for their support. He congratulated the graduates and wished them the very best as they stepped out to venture into the real world.
