How to Support

You can support the above efforts through:

a.Endowed chairs
Endowed chairs enable Kenyatta University to attract outstanding academic talent to the faculty. Because the endowment secures the position itself, it enables Kenyatta University to appoint a distinguished professor and hence building a tradition of leadership in the selected discipline. The endowed chair is widely recognized as the most prestigious honor a university can bestow on an accomplished faculty member.


b.Support academic staff to pursue PhD
It is true to state that the quality of faculty is equally as important as infrastructure and facilities in determining the quality of students and graduates. The national and international marketplace for faculty talent is remarkably competitive.

c.Support for Research
Research funds are vital to strengthening key departments and disciplines at Kenyatta University by providing the resources needed to advance work of distinction and promise. Such endowed support can bridge gaps in the funding of established researchers and help junior faculty and graduate students to explore their own original ideas and research methods.
