Dean of Students
Student Affairs Department is directly responsible for management of students’ general welfare activity right from orientation to graduation. The department aims at ensuring that students have an enabling environment for academic excellence. It forms a link between administration and the student fraternity.
The department advocates for dialogue and appreciates students as resourceful persons in all matters pertaining their welfare. We are conscious of student’s diverse backgrounds and individual differences. Students are urged to take advantage of available professional services in the department in order to minimize the various conflicts that may hinder their academic progress and career goals.
The Department coordinates various welfare activities which include; effective student leadership, financial aid, management of clubs and societies, discipline, careers guidance placement, alcohol and drug abuse issues, disabilities mainstreaming and wardenship.
The department in conjunction with relevant departments and sections coordinates and counseling is offered to students by professionals and there is both individual and group counseling. Games and Sports department organizes various sporting activities which include indoor and outdoor games. Students are facilitated to take active parts in these activities for the purposes of recreation and physical wellbeing. Students are free to join music groups which include choir and brass band to nurture talents. Last year in August the students represented MMUST in the National Music Festival for Schools and Colleges in Mombasa and won various trophies.
The University Chaplain takes care of the spiritual wellbeing of students despite their religion. Catering services are offered to students at subsidized cost on pay as you eat basis.
Accommodation is offered to students but on first come first served basis starting with first years. The upcoming female hostel will go a long way in reducing accommodation issues in MMUST.
The department also liaises with other welfare departments in ensuring students welfare including security, medical clinic, public health, central services and estates.
All students are welcome to students affairs department which operates an open door policy making MMUST a home away from home.
