The University of Nairobi (UoN) and the United States Embassy to Kenya have entered into talks on the possibility of growing existing and establishing new partnerships with American Institutions.

This was revealed in a meeting between members of UoN Management Board and the United States Ambassador to Kenya, H.E. Robert Godec.

Already, the University through the six Colleges is in collaboration with various American Universities, carrying out projects and research tackling different areas including sustainable development, environmental development, agricultural technologies, food security, health and renewable energy.

During the meeting, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. George Magoha noted that UoN has been at the forefront in research and contribution of solutions that are geared towards addressing some of the challenges facing Kenya. Through collaborative partnerships with likeminded institutions, the University has been able to engage in cutting edge research with focus on being part of the solution.

H.E. Robert Godec said that the US Embassy in Kenya is keen on working with institutions that seek to address the challenges the nation is facing. While pledging to work hand in hand with the University of Nairobi, the Ambassador commended UoN for offering relevant programmes that have seen many professionals trained who are now contributing to national development in different areas.

Present during the meeting were members of the University management board and staff from the US Embassy.
