JKUAT Westlands Campus has received a major face-lift following installation and commissioning of the Varsity’s signature gate at the campus. The event that was presided over by the Vice Chancellor Prof. Mabel Imbuga, Friday October 10, 2014, is part of the University’s resolve to streamline and enhance its corporate brand and identity among the stakeholders.
The Vice Chancellor characterized the gate as important in the life of the Nairobi based Campus as it will give the facility both visibility and corporate presence. She commended the Campus Principal, Prof. Esther Magiri and JKUAT project Manager, Muchai Mbugua for expediting the completion of the project.
Following the commissioning of the gate, Prof. Imbuga noted that the University has now embarked on the establishment of a tuition block at the campus to be operationalized through public private partnership model. The infrastructural changes have been necessitated by the increase in number of students enrolling for JKUAT academic programmes at the campus.
Westlands Campus Principal thanked the University management for the requisite support towards construction of the gate. She noted that both students and staff at the campus have expressed satisfaction with the makeover.
The Campus, the first to be established outside Juja, is the second to spot the signature gate that include among others: varsity logo, a maize cob and a sixteen-cog wheel; all branded in JKUAT colours. The signature gate is slated to be installed in Karen and Mombasa campuses.
The ceremony that was also addressed by Prof. Victoria Ngumi, acting Deputy Vice Chancellor, Administration Planning and Development was witnessed by Karen Campus Principal, Prof. Jackson Kwanza, Finance Officer, Titus Wasike and Corporate Communications Officer, Dr. Hindzano Ngonyo among others.
