University of Nairobi Open Day

University of Nairobi Open Day begun with a bang as various colleges and departments showcased their programs at the Main Campus grounds. The three day event is from May, 25-27, 2017.

Speaking during the launch, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, indicated the need for the University of Nairobi to interact with prospective students. The open day, gives the university an opportunity to showcase its products, services and its innovations.

The theme for this year’s open day is: Quality, innovative education to sustain industrial growth.

“The event provides an opportunity for interaction with prospective students, parents and the partners who are consumers of our research outputs”, said Prof. Mbithi.

Following the audit report by Commission for University Education, CUE, Universities were urged to open their doors, for public scrutiny.  It’s in this regard, that the University of Nairobi is proud to host people from all walks of life to sample its services and drink from the fountain of knowledge.

University of Nairobi has contributed immensely to the development of Kenya, both socially and intellectually.

Apart from open days, the University of Nairobi has been engaging the public through various fora like Nairobi Innovation Week, public lectures and trade shows and Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) activities.

Prof. Stephen Kiama, Principal, College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences, urged members of the public to sample the various programs and products offered by the University. “This is a one stop shop for the university. It’s like a supermarket,” he observed.

Also present during the launch were the members of the University Management Board, Senate and various Heads of Departments from Central Administration.
