Speaking during the consultative meeting, Prof. Peter Mbithi thanked the School of Business for ranking highly globally and for leading in innovation and creativity. He challenged the dons to take up opportunities in research from the National Research Fund. The lecturers were also told to take up the challenge of writing high impact research papers and publications that will bring grants to the university.

Prof. Mbithi promised to improve the working conditions for the lecturers despite the harsh economic conditions that have bedeviled the economy. Among the issues to be looked into include: security, infrastructure, staff promotions and research among others.

In his concluding remarks, the Vice-Chancellor observed that lecturers and student strikes do heavily impact on the smooth operations of the university and hence the management is working hard to avert such situations in the future.
