Mount Kenya University stand was one of the most frequented during the Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association meeting in Mombasa. The stand, immaculately bedecked in the light blue and gold corporate colours was a one-stop source of all the graduate and post-graduate programmes offered at the university.
Kenya National Union of Teachers secretary general Wilson Sossion was one of the guests who visited the stand.
”The teachers especially expressed immense interest in our school-based programmes,” said Marketing Director Mr Boniface Murigi. “As you know, teachers from all over the country assembled and we are impressed that they are aware of MKU campuses within their localities.”Within the country, MKU has campuses in Thika (main campus), Nairobi, Mombasa, Kitale, Lodwar, Kakamega, Kisii, Nkubu, Eldoret, Kabarnet, Garissa, Kisumu and Nakuru.
Mr Murigi said the university envisions establishing an Institute of Marine Research to be based at Mombasa Campus. “All our Campuses have the motivation to develop new knowledge to assist host communities face the challenges that confront them. That’s why we are establishing an institute of petroleum studies at our Lodwar Campus and we already have a research centre in Kwanza, operated by our Kitale Campus. The Institute of Marine Research will spearhead research vital for sustaining the unique ecosystem of the Indian Ocean.”
