Prof. Ochora Memba (Ph.D), the former Director of the campus and now under the stewardship of Prof. Johana Sigey (Ph.D) the campus has grown from one level to another despite the challenges facing the nation. When the Ministry of Education in Higher Learning changed policies in recent years, and saw all students with C+ (plus) and above undertake degree programmes at the universities while the reminder undertaking programmes at Technical and Vocation Education and Training (TVETs) and Teachers Training College (TTCs) institutions. There has been a challenge in acquiring students but as a campus, things have been steady for us; attracting as many applicants per semester, due to the quality of trainings offered by the campus compared to other learning institutions surrounding us.
