More UON students urged to pursue advanced degrees.

There was pomp and celebration today, when 5,090 graduands consisting of 19 PhDs, 651 Masters, 2,877 Bachelors, 35 Post Graduate Diplomas, and 1,508 Diplomas were conferred with Degrees and awarded Diplomas during a graduation ceremony presided over by Dr. Vijoo Rattansi, the Chancellor of the University.
The ceremony which was the 51st in the history of the University’s existence drew graduands from the Colleges of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences, Architecture and Engineering, Biological and Physical Sciences and Education and External Studies.

While congratulating the graduands, Dr. Rattansi charged them in the famous words of Lupita Nyong’o to follow their dreams because they are valid. In her remarks, Dr. Rattansi noted that the University is on course on the road to excellence and she is happy with progress made in infrastructural development  and expansion of academic and social space for students. Rattansi called upon the University to be self-sufficient in terms of developing and improving infrastructure and modernizing teaching and research facilities thereby
creating a conducive environment for scholars. She challenged the University to commercialize research output and create new industries that will employ graduates.

On his part, the Dr. Idle Farah, Chairman of Council, noted that as the University adapts to the new legislation of the Universities Act 2012, that allows greater access to university and higher education for all citizens, there is need to be innovative in order to get more students and establish more programmes, maintaining and enhancing the high quality of education and training to enable the University produce wholesome graduates with a marketability edge. Dr. Farah challenged the university community to redouble its efforts of teaching, examining and providing a wholesome learning experience and attain self-sufficiency in terms of developing and improving infrastructure and modernizing teaching and research facilities thereby creating a conducive environment for scholars.
