New Director for JKUAT Arusha Campus

Plans for JKUAT to take its academic programmes to Arusha Tanzania have received considerable boost following the appointment of Prof. Ward Mavura, of the Department of Chemistry as the inaugural Director of the new campus, making JKUAT, the first Kenyan university to open a teaching facility outside the country’s boarders.

The appointment made by the Vice Chancellor Prof. Mabel Imbuga effectively marks the final stages for JKUAT to roll out a number of its programmes in the Tanzanian city that also host the East Africa Community headquarters. The initiative is also a major boost to JKUAT’s quest to internationalize its programmes, a fact captured in the university mission declaration where JKUAT intends to be a university of global excellence in Training, Research and Innovation for Development.

The university has already secured space in Arusha from where a number of programmes mainly in Information Technology and a variety of business related programmes such as Entrepreneurship, Purchasing and Supplies Management, Human Resources Management would be launched at diploma, undergraduate, and graduate levels.
