MKU Vice-Chancellor, Prof Deogratius Jaganyi is the new chair of the International Inter-universities Consortium. 

Prof. Jaganyi was picked after the university hosted the 8th Inter-disciplinary and Inter-universities research conference.

The conference was held at the Mwai Kibaki Convention Centre, Thika Main Campus, between March 29 - 31st.  Its theme was “Participatory Leadership, Innovation and Knowledge Transfer for Sustainable Economies”. 

High profile speakers and researchers from some of the world's top universities including Vincent Pol University (Poland), Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (Nigeria), University of Makeni (Sierra Leone), Kyambogo University (Uganda), and Kenya's MKU, and University of Eldoret attended.  Researchers from the National Commission For Science, Technology & Innovation (NACOSTI) were also in attendance.

In accepting to serve as chair, Prof Jaganyi reckoned that partnerships and collaborations are a winning strategy for African universities in the quest to conquer synergistic frontiers.

While closing the meeting, Prof Jaganyi said the consortium as an entity has achieved a lot in the last 10 years since its inception.

A notable achievement, is the multi-disciplinary African Journal for Education, Science and Technology. He challenged the editorial board to ensure the journal is indexed so that students and faculty can have globally recognised journal that hosts the consortium publications.
