The University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi presided over the inauguration ceremony of the boards of Open Distance and e-Learning Campus (ODeL)

The inauguration ceremony took place on September 4, 2017 at the Council Chamber, University of Nairobi Towers.

Speaking during the ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor, urged the board to start work immediately and help the University with its transformation agenda. Among the list of priorities of the board include enrollment of more international students, female students and students from marginalized communities.

Prof. Mbithi noted that the ODeL campus which was created with approval of the University Senate, is expected to grow and become as big as the other six campuses. He observed that the new campus will have to work extra hard to help the university generate revenue as the Government capitation has been on the decline over the years.

In order to attract students, the two boards are expected to ‘make themselves relevant by efficient customer service that is appreciated by customers’.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by various members of the Executive University Board.
