As in the case of students, increasing globalization and the pursuit of internationalization programs by universities has necessitated the exchange of faculty. Exchange programs are often life-changing experiences which provide faculty with a broadened international horizon and the opportunity to work in different cultural settings and sharpen their skills.
Again, although the university has signed numerous memoranda of understanding with other universities that specify the exchange of faculty, it has however been unable to implement this for lack of funds. Kenyatta University Foundation seeks to give more Kenyatta University faculty the opportunity to gain valuable experiences through faculty exchange. Supporting faculty for these experiences will not only sharpen their quality but also enhance the quality of programs.
