With the theme, "PROVIDE LEADERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE” the  University of Nairobi Marked its 53rd graduation ceremony on September 4th, 2015 at the Chancellor's court. 

41 PhDs, 769 Masters and 2,972 Bachelors were conferred; 17 Postgraduate Diplomas and 1,501 ordinary Diplomas were awarded; a total of 5,301 graduands. The graduands were from the college of Architecture and Engineering, the College of Education and External studies, The college of Biological and Physical Sciences, and the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Studies.

In his speech, the Chairman of council Dr. Idle Farah assured the University that the Council is committed to supporting the management to deliver high quality service to students, staff, collaborators, donors, stakeholders and the public. In addition, the council is commited to maintaining good industrial relations with the unions, for the mutual benefit of the University and staff.


Dr, Mrs Vijoo Rattansi, The Chancellor while addressing leadership matters, said, William Arthur Ward’s wisdom was instructive: “The mediocre teacher tells; the good teacher explains; the superior teacher demonstrates; the great teacher inspires!” Those who hold public office must therefore strive to inspire those who look up to them for leadership.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof Peter Mbithi said today’s graduation holds a special place in my heart. We are greatly privileged to present to the world the pioneer crop of graduands under this administration. They have walked with us the very vision of our existence; that of a world-class university committed to scholarly excellence.
