The Kenyan government official challenged those at the helm of other institutions of higher learning in the East African country to emulate CUEA’s technological advancement and “take up a central role in making Kenya a driving force in technology and industrialization.”
He pledged to work closely with officials of the Catholic institution to “align their research and training with the community around them in order to make their service more relevant and impactful.”
Mr. Ombaki also said that the Kenyan government would partner with the leadership of CUEA in view of establishing programs and courses aligned to the needs and requirements of the industry, ensuring “cutting edge research and innovations that will enhance our social-economic transformation as a country.”
The Kenyan government, he further said, is to establish “linkages, collaborations and partnerships with various stakeholders to boost the institution’s programs and catalyze their research output.”
Turning his attention to the 2,500 graduands, Mr. Ombaki said, “I hope you took advantage of the facilities in CUEA as you pursue your studies. I am confident that you have been informed to become value-based scholars in your areas of specialization.”
“We in the government are looking forward to working with you directly as employees or indirectly as scholars, professionals and entrepreneurs as you take the next step in your lives and careers,” the Kenyan CS said during the 41st CUEA graduation ceremony that was organized under the theme, “Expanding Opportunities for Growth through Quality Education and Training in the Context of Changing World Dynamics.”
Established in 1984 by AMECEA, CUEA strives to be a world class University producing transformative leaders for Church and Society.
