We, in SEKU, have departed from the notion that learning can only take place in a ‘brick and wall’ environment. We appreciate that learning can take place anywhere and at any time. Our goal is, therefore, to open up opportunities to learners in varied geographical locations as long as they can connect to internet. Currently we are focusing on distance learning as a mode of study. If you aspire to be part of the fast-moving global world, then SEKU’s ODeL is the place to be in…..and in case you missed our virtue public lecture on Journey through innovation: Unveiling the progress of the Directorate of Open, Distance and E-Learning in SEKU, follow this link.

We are delighted to host an eight member team from the National Council of Churches of Kenya led by the General Secretary, Rev. Canon Chris Kinyanjui.

The team held a fruitful consultative meeting with the University Management led by our Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eng. Douglas Shitanda to discuss matters on research collaboration for academic papers to attract grants.

The teams also deliberated on the establishment of a Christian Student's Leadership Centre at the University for the Christian students.

Both institutions have an almost similar mission of Transforming lives so we look forward to the successful collaborations this deliberation will bring forth.

2nd Research and Innovation Week

The University will hold the 2nd Research and Innovation Week from 25th to 28th March 2024, whose theme is ‘Addressing Development Challenges and Climate Change Through Research and Innovation’. Staff and students are encouraged to register and exhibit their research and innovation in the form of posters, innovations and products. Registration for staff is KES 1000.00 and student entry is free. The Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Tonny Omwansa, the CEO, Kenya Innovation Agency (KENIA). We look forward to your active participation in this important event in our university calendar.

We were honored to receive a 41-seater electric bus from ROAM Company for a three-day pilot test in readiness to own our fleet in the foreseeable future to fight the transport menace for both staff and students at the minimum cost. The electric bus guarantees cost reduction and, most importantly, delivers uncompromising performance with zero emissions or noise pollution. As an institution, we are honored to be the first university in Kenya to receive the electric bus for the test drive.

2023/2024 Student Governing Council Induction

The 2023/2024 Student Governing Council is on a two day induction workshop to prepare them to fully take charge as they work towards fulfilling their manifestos.The importance of this workshop is to equip the leaders with the requisite knowledge and channels of communication on how to work hand in hand with the management for the overall good of the student community. The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eng. Shitanda in his opening remarks, pledged the managements support to the student leaders. He also reminded them that they are first students before being leaders. Their studies should always come first. The students got a chance to interact with member of staff from the Legal, Finance and Administration sections and learn how everything works.

South Eastern Kenya University (SEKU) has developed a draft Strategic Plan covering the period 2023/24 - 2027/28. The Plan has been developed following the mandates, functions, and responsibilities of the University as established under the Universities Act 2012, the SEKU Charter 2013, the Constitution of Kenya 2010, and the revised Guidelines for the development of the fifth Generation Strategic Plans issued by the National Treasury and Economic Planning.

The Strategic Plan development process has followed the four steps outlined in the revised Guidelines for the Development of the Fifth-Generation Strategic Plans. Step one involved the initiation of the planning process with Top Management agreeing on the strategic direction for the University by reviewing and setting the vision, mission, core values, and strategic objectives and constituting a technical committee for the development of the Plan. Step two involved the actual development of the plan by the technical committee. Step three involves the validation of the Plan by stakeholders while step four involves the finalization and dissemination of the plan for implementation.

The final Strategic Plan will be a product of extensive collaboration and comprehensive feedback from our internal and external stakeholders. Consequently, SEKU has scheduled an external stakeholder forum for your input on the Draft Strategic Plan for further improvements.

Views and Suggestions can be sent via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to reach us on or before Wednesday 21st February, 2024. There will be an online stakeholder forum for the validation of the draft strategic plan on Monday 26th February, 2024 at 9.30 am. The Draft Strategic Plan can be accessed on our website: https://seku.ac.ke/strategic-plan
