The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, presided over the inauguration ceremony of the Graduate School Board at the Council Chamber, University of Nairobi Towers on September, 4, 2017.

The Vice-Chancellor emphasized on enrollment of more international students, more women students and people from marginalized communities. He said that he looked forward to a vibrant Graduate School with more publications and better curriculum. Teaching, learning and marking of examinations should be according to the statues and graduate students should have a feeling that they belong.

Also inaugurated was the Open Distance and e-Learning (ODel) Campus Board.  The Vice-Chancellor noted that the new campus was expected to grow and become as big as the other six campuses. He observed that the new campus will have to work extra hard to help the university generate revenue as the government capitation has been on the decline over the years.

To create a cohesive team, among other things, the Vice-Chancellor urged the boards to carry out capacity building to help the teams bond together, create synergy and achieve their mandate of producing quality graduates.

The event was attended by among others the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic Affairs, Prof. Henry Mutoro, Prof. Lydiah Njenga, Director, Graduate School and Prof. Christopher Gakuu, Director, ODeL among others.
