On Friday August 31, 2018 • My Deputy Vice Chancellors, • Other Management Members present, • The Deans of various Schools, • The Heads of Departments, • Staff, • Students, • Ladies and gentlemen. Good morning. I wish to take this singular opportunity to welcome our beloved First Year Students for the 2018/2019 academic year to Moi University. I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate them for making it to Moi University, after working hard because many would have wished to be here with us today but did not make it because of one reason or the other. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to you for making Moi University your first choice of all the institutions of higher learning in Kenya. You made the right choice and I want to assure you that you will not regret. We don’t take your choice for granted and I want to promise you that together with my dedicated team, we shall make sure that your dreams come true. But your cooperation is very important in all this. I urge students to make good use of the available resources at Moi University to attain their goals. This is just the beginning of a long journey. In order to realize your dreams, you should remain steadfast and focused from the beginning upto the end. The few years you are going to spend at Moi University should be optimally utilized so that when time comes for you to leave at the completion of your courses, you will be proud to be associated with Moi University and the community should see value in your education. You must have realized during the few days you have spent here that life at University is totally different from your respective high schools where you came from. Teachers at your former high schools were always following you up to see what you were doing, and even some of you hated school life because it resembled some sort of a “prison”. But now you have joined the world where you are treated as adults and you are at liberty to make your own decisions and choices. Whereas you are free to make decisions with no one policing you any more, I must remind you that choices have consequences. You should always make decisions that you will not live to regret. Friends complement our lives. No man is an island, and therefore, no human being can live without friends. But the friends who make our company should be those that can build us. You have come from different backgrounds, which is good because you are at an advantage to reap the benefits of diversity. But you should be careful with friends who want to mislead you. Currently, Kenya and the international community are on high alert due to the terror groups that are targeting institutions of learning to recruit students into their ranks and files. Such groups come with money that they use to entice students to join them. You should be careful with such groups. They may use your closest friends to recruit you. Dear students, I urge you also to beware of the growing abuse of drugs by University students across the country. This is a real threat to your careers. You should resist any allure of joining groups or friends that will lead you to abuse of drugs. Drugs are addictive and the moment you begin the habit, it is difficult to quit. You should also be aware that the HIV/AIDS scourge is still in our midst. Now that you are in a free world, don’t be tempted to compensate for the time you were under “lock and key” at high schools to engage in irresponsible sexual behaviours. You should also avoid engaging in any criminal acts. The long arm of Government will catch up with those who want to go astray. You should know that there is no shortcut to become rich. You must work for every penny that goes into your pocket. We shall be happy and proud of you when you walk out of Moi University at the end of your courses as upright individuals pregnant with knowledge and skills sipped from the Foundation of Knowledge, and ready to serve the nation. With these few remarks, I would like to wish our first year students a safe stay at Moi University. Thank you. May God bless you all. PROF. ISAAC SANGA KOSGEY, Ph.D VICE CHANCELLOR

Vice Chancellor's Speech during 36th Graduation Ceremony 2018 at the Graduation Pavilion, Main Campus

On Friday August 24, 2018 • The Chancellor, Moi University, Prof. Miriam K. Were, • The Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Education, Amb. (Dr.) Amina C. Mohamed, • The Principal Secretary State Department of University Education and Research, Prof. Collette Suda, • Members of Council, Moi University, • Vice Chancellors of other Universities present, • The Deputy Vice Chancellors, • The Management Board Members, • The Deans of various Schools, • The Heads of Departments, • Professors and Lecturers, • Graduands, • Staff and Students, • Members of the Press, • Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, Good Morning. It is a great pleasure to be part of the great family of Moi University, Kenya’s second Public University. This 36th Graduation Ceremony is my first to attend as the Vice-Chancellor of this great Institution, having just been installed. I take this singular opportunity to welcome our distinguished guests who include Education Cabinet Secretary, Amb. (Dr.) Amina C. Mohamed, Principal Secretary and Chief Administrative Secretary for University Education and Research, Prof. Collette Suda, our Chancellor Prof. Miriam Khamadi Were, Chairman of Council, Dr. Jeremiah Ntoloi Ole Koshal and Members of the University Management Board and the entire University fraternity, who have set aside their time to be with us. I would also wish to congratulate our Graduands who have worked hard to ensure that they complete their academic programmes successfully. Certainly, their hard work, determination and prayers have finally borne fruit. We sincerely thank the parents, guardians and sponsors for the immense support to the Graduands to pursue their studies to completion. We are privileged to be led by the Chancellor who has played an active role globally in improving the livelihood of humanity . I also thank the Council, Senate, and Members of Management for their effort, which has led to development of the Institution. The student leadership has also contributed in ensuring that there is harmony between the student fraternity and Management despite some of the challenges that we have faced. We are proud of the great contributions that Moi University has made in higher education, research and extension, and this informs our decisions. We have reached a deliberate decision to revert to our original mission in 1984 of being a University of Science, Technology and Innovation. We intend to expand our pogrammes to target Science and Technology. In the recent past, we have seen our students come up with ground breaking innovations such as the HIV Subdermal Implant that will help eradicate swallowing of ARVs, social chat app, ALLY, that allows one to interact with other people throughout the world in a more fun way and Fall Army Worm pesticide that promises to unriddle the devastating impact of the destructive pest to farmers across the world, just to mention but a few. We are committed to have all innovations by our staff and students patented to enable them reap maximum benefits from them. Further, an Office of Career Services has been established for mentorship of students to attain soft skills and academic advice. Moi University has fully embraced the Government’s Big Four Development Agenda. To this end, we purpose to further our researches in the fields of health, food security, housing and manufacturing. We have embarked on full modernization of Rivatex East Africa Limited using a bilateral loan of Ksh3 Billion from the Exim Bank of India. At the completion of the modernisation process at the end of this year, Rivatex will attain product diversification and expansion of its market across the East African Region and also export of textile products globally through the Export Processing Zones. We are also expanding our ELIMU Millers to produce more maize flour, animal feeds and introduce milling of wheat flour. We also plan to introduce an Artificial Insemination Centre for cows and an Agro-Vet Shop to serve farmers. All these are aimed at rationalizing our Income Generating Units to ensure they have business value and address our core business. These are some of the things that will accelerate transformation of our country into a rapidly industrialising middle-income nation, and eventual realization of the tenets of Kenya Vision 2030, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and African Agenda 2063. We are re-aligning our academic programmes and research activities to the “Big Four Agenda” for National development and anchor them with industry and our original vision to be “a University of Choice in Nurturing Innovation and Talent in Science, Technology and Development”. Key in our endeavours is to maintain the relevance of our University to enhance employability of our graduates. We are also re-organizing our governance and management to be more responsive and efficient in service delivery. The modernization of Rivatex will also come along with the establishment of a Skills Development Mechatronics Centre at Main Campus. The Centre will be set up in collaboration with Lakshmi Machine Works Limited, the Indian Company that is installing new machines at Rivatex. This will be a boost to our Incubation Centre that seeks to nurture student and staff innovations. It is worth noting that Rivatex provided the bedrock upon which Moi University relied to win the Digital Literacy Programme (DLP) and the World Bank-funded Africa Centre of Excellence in Phytochemicals, Textiles and Renewable Energy (PTRE), both massive projects that have put Moi University on the global radar as an innovation and technology-based University. In promotion of our Corporate Social Responsibility, we have come up with models that address community needs both locally and nationally. We are in the process of establishing a Soil Testing Laboratory at the Main Campus to help farmers establish fertility levels of their soils to know what fertilizers to apply to their crops. We are also in partnership with Uasin Gishu County Government to make a major facelift of Kesses to spur development of the area. There is a plan to draw a road network for murraming and tarmacking in Kesses to ease transport and extension of street lighting from Kesses Health Centre to Cheboiywo Market through Moi University to enhance security. In the same breadth, through the Moi University Kesses Constituency (MUKESCO) Sports Day that is to be held every 22nd of September, the University envisages a harmonious co-existence with the community. We purpose to refocus on development of the Main Campus. To this end, we have embarked on strategies of mobilizing resources for the University. We intend to establish a full-time Directorate of Resource Mobilisation whose main goal will be to look for strategic partners who can fund major development projects in the University. The University is keen on mobilizing its own resources from the donors, Alumni and research so that we depend less on the Ex-chequer. We have many stalled projects that need to be completed. I, therefore, urge the Alumni to get involved in the University activities, bearing in mind that we need more resources. Further, we have embarked on the path of rationalizing our Campuses, and we are looking forward to soon having our Odera Akang’o College Campus located in Yala, Siaya County, gain University College status. This will ensure that it is efficient and sustainable. Moi University is determined to rebrand itself. We want to shed our past ways of doing things. In this path, we promise to walk together with every staff, student and all interested parties to realize the rebirth of Moi University. The issue of “missing marks” that has dogged many institutions of higher learning will be a thing of the past. Students must get their examination results at the end of every semester to enable us slay the naughty dragon that drags the students’ completion of studies on time. We are focused on ensuring that students get a holistic education by providing a conducive learning environment and expanding the fields for co-curricular activities. As I conclude, I would like to wish our Graduands success in their future undertakings and urge those who have not reached the academic pinnacle to consider coming back for their Masters and Doctorate degrees. PROF. ISAAC SANGA KOSGEY, Ph.D. VICE-CHANCELLOR.

Message from the Vice Chancellor

On behalf of the Moi University Senate, Council, Management and the entire Moi University fraternity, I take this opportunity to welcome you to this Institution. Additionally, I welcome you to the Moi University Website Platform which expedites communication and sharing of information, knowledge and best practices within the University and with all our stakeholders. I thank you for taking time out to visit our Website and share in our Vision.

Moi University was established in 1984 by an Act of Parliament (Moi University Act, 1984) as the second public University in Kenya. The University is located in Kesses, Uasin Gishu County, 35 kilometers from Eldoret Town, and 310 kilometers Northwest of Nairobi, the Capital City of Kenya.

The University has expanded tremendously over the past decade giving birth to 8 fully fledged Universities namely, Maseno University, Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, Maasai Mara University, University of Kabianga, University of Eldoret, Karatina University, Garissa University and Rongo University, and this can be attributed to the commitment of the entire Moi University fraternity, government investment, strategic partnerships, and the visionary leadership of the University Management and Council. These achievements are a testament to the resilience and fortitude of every faculty and staff member who enabled change at a pace and on a scale never experienced before in the country.

Moi University serves about 40,000 students via on campus and off campus courses in 232 degree programmes offered by the Institution’s 15 Schools. Students come to Moi University from 17 countries in the region and abroad and all the 47 Counties in Kenya. To fully derive the educational benefits of a diverse Campus, every area of the University is committed to actively pursuing an inclusive environment particularly in relation to students with disabilities. The University leads in providing all the benefits of a personal, close-knit community, large enough to engage in cutting-edge research and offer our students a comprehensive range of rigorous academic programmes.

The University is proud of its great contributions made in higher education, research and extension and, right now, wherever you go there is always a Moi University alumnus either in front or behind you.

I invite you to browse our Website to see our strengths and advantages. They are too numerous to catalogue here.
