• Student Welfare

    Student life is an integral part of University education as it offers students unique opportunities for personal growth, as well as for the development of leadership and communication skills.

‘Be leaders up to the task,’ SGC leaders urged

The Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology student leaders went through a three- day leadership induction training from 2nd to 4th June 2016 where guidelines on governance in institutions of higher learning and student roles were discussed.
Officially opening the workshop, the MMUST VC Prof. Fredrick Otieno said, “I congratulate you for this momentous achievement but again wish to inform you that there are serious challenges which you will have to tackle as leaders”.

The workshop was also attended by DVC (Academic and Student affairs) Prof. Josephine Ngaira, who took the student leaders through various leadership roles and the requisite channels of communication that would be explored to achieve best results.
A senior student counsellor Mrs. Grace Muango advised the students to help each other particularly in counselling, handling pressure and stress management.
Mr. Mutoka from the Dean of Students office took the leaders through the rules and regulations governing conduct and discipline of students.
The students were asked to not only practise good leadership but also shun activism while embracing the entrepreneurship spirit. A guest speaker Dr. Lelei, who is Dean of Students at the University of Eldoret gave an in depth talk on policy and decision-making within the university setting. A representative from the Ministry of Youth, Gender and Sports, Kakamega County also took leaders through the youth empowerment programmes and how as leaders, the students could partner with the Ministry.
The Acting Dean of Students, Dr Bernadette Abwao discussed the emergent issues of countering radicalisation and violent extremism in institutions of higher learning. “You need to balance between student leadership and academics,” she noted.
