The Journey to a KU Dadaab Campus
The Lagdera Constituency Development Fund Committee (LCDFC) premises were handed over to Kenyatta University in a ceremony that took place on 9th October, 2012. This marked the beginning of the KU Centre for refugee and Empowerment. Consequently, Kenyatta University through KU-CRSE renovated the three CDF buildings as well as fencing off the 40 acre premises. In August 2017 through the restructuring of university departments and Directorates the Centre was named as KU Dadaab Centre
Kenyatta University Dadaab campus also provides a platform for The Borderless Higher Education for Refugees (BHER) and Quality Secondary Education in Emergencies consortium to offer on-line and onsite university education Programmes both in Dadaab and Kakuma.
