Kenyatta University Accredited to offer Academic Programmes in Nutrition and Dietetics
Kenyatta University has been fully accredited to offer Diploma and Degree programmes in Foods, Nutrition and Dietetics. The University was awarded the full licence by the Kenya Nutritionists and Dieticians Institute (KNDI) on Thursday, 19th November, 2015. The full licensing was preceded by a thorough inspection and audit of the available teaching-learning resources and other mandatory standards for offering academic programmes in the areas of nutrition and dietetics by a team of professional inspectors from KNDI. The team was led by the Chairperson of KNDI, Prof. Julia Ojiambo and he of the Accreditation Committee, Prof. Edward Karuri. The team inspected the University’s standards and capacities relating to educators, students, governance, leadership and mentoring, facilities and equipment, curriculum and clinical practice. Others included quality management, monitoring and evaluation, examinations and research standards. The University’s compliance level to these standards was rated highly at 86.4%.
Before the full licensing, the Department of Foods, Nutrition and Dietetics legally operated under an interim licence. The full licensure is a milestone for both KNDI and the country as a whole because Kenyatta University is not only the pioneer institution in offering the nutrition and dietetics programmes but also the main contributor to the training of graduates of the full accreditation, Kenyatta University will continue to provide leadership in training and mentorship of nutritionists and dieticians in this country and the entire East African Region.
RESCHEDULING OF EXAMINATIONS OF THURSDAY 26TH NOVEMBER, 2015
Following the scheduled visit by Pope Francis and the declaration by the Government that Thursday 26th November 2015 be a Public Holiday and a National Day of Prayer and Reflection, it has been found necessary to re-schedule the examinations that were to be held on that day, in order to accord both staff and students the opportunity to join the rest of the country in prayers.
This is therefore to inform all students that the Examinations scheduled for Thursday 26th November 2015 will now be held on Monday 7th December 2015 at the same time and venue.
ALL OTHER EXAMINATIONS REMAIN UNCHANGED.
On behalf of the University Management, let me wish you a blessed day of prayer.
