Operationalization of the Centre for Self-Sponsored Programmes (CESSP)

We are informing all our stakeholders that the University of Nairobi has resolved to operationalize the Centre for Self Sponsored Programmes (CESSP).

CESSP was established by the University of Nairobi vide Statute XXXV in 2005. It has however, remained un-operational as its functions were being carried out by the University of Nairobi Enterprises and Services (UNES) Limited, a fully-owned subsidiary company of the University. UNES was formed by the University in 1996 with the mandate of carrying out commercial activities on behalf of the University.
To refocus UNES to its core mandate, the University Council, in consultation with the UNES Board, resolved in 2014 to transfer to the University the management of student fees, which was being carried out by UNES on an agency basis. Consequently, the University has undertaken to operationalize CESSP so as to assign the management of student fees to it as it was established for that purpose. This decision was also made in order to enable UNES to reposition itself on its original mandate and to better exploit emerging business opportunities, thereby creating greater value for the University.
