Let’s tighten grip on partnerships; they are handy, Chancellor asserts
Mount Kenya University continues to embrace more partnerships as it solidifies its reputation locally and internationally. “In today’s global village, partnerships are key to socio-economic development among both developing and developed countries,” said MKU Chancellor Prof Victoria Wulsin during the 11th Graduation Ceremony. “MKU has embraced partnerships within its academic, research and community-based activities.” She expressed her appreciation to the university’s partners for their continued support.
MKU has worked with diverse partners, among them county and national governments, to serve both the local and global community. The university has 43 linkages with the public sector, 45 partnerships in the private sector and 72 with institutions of higher learning and research institutes from around the world. Since the last graduation ceremony, it has expanded its international partnerships in Asia, Namibia and Poland.
The Chancellor noted: “Our homegrown ‘Africa Agenda 2063’and the (global) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) emphasis the necessity of partnerships for development.” Prof Wulsin reported that MKU benchmarks with some of the best universities in the world. This, she said, “has led to MKU being recognized as one of the top universities nationally and regionally”.
The university has succeeded in networking for effective teaching, research, and community service. “The pooling and sharing of resources has led to the synergy necessary for effective implementation of our mission,” Prof Wulsin added.
