lanMMUST in collaboration with Karatina University, Kenyatta University, and Maseno University hosted the second workshop to train Deans and Directors of public and private universities in Kenya on 26th July 2018. The project is steered by a team of Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies (DIES) and German Academic Exchange Programme (DAAD) Alumni from partnering institutions who have trained on leadership and management of higher education.

The workshop, whose theme was Quality Leadership and Management; a Driver for Change in Higher Education, is a National Multiplication Training under DIES programmes supported by DAAD and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK). The training aims at enhancing quality in higher education through leadership training by focusing on middle-level managers who play a pivotal role in the governance of universities and provide a feeder into top-level university management of the near future. 

Speaking during the opening of the workshop, MMUST Vice Chancellor Prof. Eng. Fred Otieno congratulated the project team and lauded the initiative of universities working together on this project. He further said that the training of Deans and Directors is a relevant and timely move that bridges a critical management and leadership gap in Universities. 

The ceremony was also attended by the Director German Academic Exchange Services (DAAD) Regional Office for Africa, Prof. Helmut Blumbach, and his deputy, Ms. Margaret Kirai. The project team comprised of the Deputy Vice Chancellor for Academic, Research and Students Affairs of Karatina University, Prof. P.
