Kenyatta University, like other public universities, has had challenges with students residing outside the University due to security issues and the students not being able to fully access services offered at the University such as libraries, computer labs and recreation facilities that add to the quality of campus life. The signing of the agreement towards realization of the PPP Hostels Project comes after the Cabinet approval on 21st May 2015. << More on the PPP Hostels Project>>

It is with great pleasure that I announce the award of a Fellowship to Dr. Moses Keya Ochanji of the School of Education at California State University San Marcos, USA, who is an alumni of Kenyatta University. He was awarded the Fellowship by the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program, to travel to Kenya to work with Kenyatta University on:Developing Online Curriculum and Materials for the Teacher Professional Development Program.

Dr. Ochanji will work with Professor Agnes W. Gathumbi, the Director of International Programs and Collaborations, and Prof. Henry O. Ayot, the Director for Teacher Professional Development at Kenyatta University, to develop fully online learning units for the courses offered for the teacher professional development program, aimed at benefiting thousands of practicing teachers employed by the Kenya Teacher’s Service Commission. As part of the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship program, Dr. Ochanji and Prof. Gathumbi will also explore ways of establishing long–term collaboration between their two institutions.

The project at Kenyatta University is one of 59 projects that will pair African Diaspora scholars with higher education institutions in Africa, to collaborate on a range of fields across the arts andhumanities, social sciences, education, sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics. This innovative Fellowship program facilitates engagement between scholars born in Africa who arenow based in the United States or Canada, and scholars in Africa, on mutually beneficial academic activities. The exchanges are grounded in equality, and they contribute to brain circulation and global networking of ideas, creating new knowledge in a non-hierarchical empirical manner. The various projects contribute to rethinking the epistemologies of knowledge.
