The University of Eldoret Alumni Association was launched at a colourful ceremony attended by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Teresa Akenga. The Guest of Honour was the Chairman of Council, Dr. David I. Ojakaa who was represented by Mr. Geoffrey Ouma, Council Member and Chair of the Academic, Research, Innovations and Students’ Affairs Committee (ARISAC).
Prof. Akenga in her speech urged the alumni to come together to support the university which was the foundation to their professional and entrepreneurial careers. She highlighted their role and the impact of the Alumni Association in the development of university education. Through the association, they will contribute to the development of key infrastructure and facilities leading to growth of the institution. Apart from this, the association would provide an opportunity to network and re-establish friendships and contacts.
Dr Ojakaa praised the multiple roles that the UoE Alumni played in the society. He noted many are in key positions of major influence and appreciated the efforts they made in the development of our society and justifying the years spent in the University. He mentioned they are the building blocks of our University today as they were among the over 17,000 graduates of UoE who have been awarded post graduate degrees, undergraduate degrees, and postgraduate diplomas.
Elections of the UoEAA were held and by acclamation the office bearers for the association are;
Chairman: Mr. Symon Kirui

As the way forward, Prof Akenga told the team, an office was ready for their occupation in the Old Library complex.
