Greetings! On behalf of the Academic and Student Affairs Division of Maseno University, I welcome you to our University and its website.

We are pleased that you have the opportunity to visit and interact with us on our many exciting projects and the programmes we offer. The website provides an opportunity to showcase the wonderful work on student development, support departments and what students are doing on and outside Campus, responding to the call to contribute to knowledge generation and developing the society at large.

We live in an era where advances in Information and Communication Technology have forced their way into every aspect of our life, with University education being no exception. A major component of the change, therefore, was the infusion of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into all undergraduate programs offered at the University. Today, University administrators globally are faced with the challenge of delivering quality education and services that meeting, if not exceeding, the expectations of today’s more informed students, more selective employers, and more scrutinizing Governments.

At Maseno University, we have well-defined learning outcomes at all degrees-program levels, and we have committed and caring faculty who recognize that while both teaching and learning are important activities in the educational process, it is learning that is more important. We therefore seek to create a student-centered learning environment, where the sole purpose behind everything we do is to enrich our students’ learning experience.

With twelve (12) Schools, one (1) Institute and programmes offered in fifty two (52) departments, we are the Academic heart of the University. Maseno University is a source of limitless opportunity for intellectual growth, for engaging faculty in and out of the classroom, and for nearly any academic interest our students may seek to pursue.
