Members of the University Executive Board (UEB) have signed performance contract with the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Nairobi.

The signing ceremony was held at the Council Chamber on July 21, 2017.

Speaking during the signing ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi urged the members of the UEB which comprises the principals of the six colleges and the directors of the Graduate School and the newly created ODeL Campus to  fully implement and surpass their targets as stated in the signed 2017/2018 financial year performance contract.

Borrowing the words of Jack Ma, a the Chinese business magnate, Prof. Mbithi urged the team to work with zeal and make their clients happy.

“Meet your targets and surpass. The difficulties are the opportunities. Make your clients happy, in this case the students, their parents and guardians and the University will be successful. Do not complain, make use of the opportunities and excel,” he said.

Also discussed during the meeting are the challenges facing the University among them the frequent power and water outages which he stressed should be resolved immediately.  The members of the University Executive Board also adopted the recommendation of rewarding top researchers as was agreed at a workshop with deans, directors of faculties, schools and institutes. UEB members agreed that the money will be used to create an endowment fund that will enable the university to reward its top scholars for a long time to come.
