As the Vice Chancellor and CEO of Lukenya University, I take this opportunity to welcome all of you to our great University. We are located about 20 kilometres from Mtito Andei on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway, Kenya. We believe that we are one of the best universities in Africa and will continue to improve so that we become one of the best in the world. We are a young university which is growing fast, embracing dynamism, creativity and innovation. We have a beautiful, modern campus sitting on 1,600 acres and have some of the best learning infrastructure in Africa.

We are located in a strategic location which is ideal for learning, next to Tsavo East National Park in a wonderful rural setting surrounded by beautiful hills and next to Athi River. Our students enjoy beach facilities of the river and enjoy all kinds of wildlife from the safety of the university.

One of the reasons for popularity of Lukenya University is our small class numbers averaging 20 students which promotes proper learning and where lecturers get to know all their students. The University has a population of about 1000 students with modern classrooms and lecturer theatres, supported with LCD projectors. The instruction is learner centred and interactive and students get a lot of support from full time staff. We have a well equipped library and wonderful laboratories for science courses. We have incredible sports facilities for all games in which students have interest.

Students’ life at Lukenya University is one of the best.  There are many clubs and associations that cater for all interests of students and new students are encouraged to form new clubs and associations if they are not comfortable with existing ones. Lukenya University has a wonderful students centre run by students.  We have students from Kenya and other parts of the world and seek to create graduates with global competencies. We seek to produce holistic graduates that are competent in class and in extra curricula activities as well.

We have a vibrant democratic culture in which the University Management and students meet frequently to discuss issues affecting the University. Democratic elections are held regularly to elect students representatives from the President to the cabinet secretaries. The Lukenya University Students Union (LUSU) has the face of Kenya and is gender balanced. The LUSU leadership believes in dialogue which is the hallmark of Lukenya University way of doing things.

There are many degree, diploma and certificate courses at Lukenya University. We provide training in three degree programs - in Education, Business and Agriculture. We have several diploma and certificate programs as well

Lukenya is one of the most beautiful campuses in Kenya, embracing the green philosophy in which staff and students work together to ensure that we leave the world better than we found it. All students at the University are required to adopt a tree which they water and take care of throughout their stay at the university.

We have great lecturers trained in some of the greatest universities in the world. Our students enjoy one of the friendliest academic atmospheres. We endeavour to provide high quality education to Kenyan and international students in order to help in training high quality manpower for the world.

Lukenya University has developed collaborations and linkages with other universities and organizations across the world. The University is the process of establishing linkages with Linkoping University in Sweden, University of West Bohemia at Pilsen in Czech Republic, the Open University of Tanzania, various universities in the US, among others. The University is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), Association of African Universities (AAU) and Inter University Council of East Africa (IUCEA).

I welcome you to Lukenya and invite you to join us in making this one of the greatest universities in the world.

May God bless you!
