The Strategic Plan 2019-2024 is the key document in our cycle of planning, delivery and accountability.
This is the second Strategic Plan of University of Eldoret (UoE) since it became a fully-fledged Public University in 2013. In the last five years (2014-2019), the University has made remarkable progress, and subsequently redefined its focus within its mission and vision to draw its long term development plans. A review of the latest external assessment and a situation analysis of the University’s operating environment, as documented in the University of Eldoret End-Term Evaluation of Strategic Plan 2014-2019, brings a number of challenges to the fore. The university’s present and future challenges informed the development of Strategic Plan 2019-2024.
The Strategic Plan has been developed in cognizance of Constitution of Kenya, Vision 2030, the Big Four policy and other legal documents. The University has a vision of being “A premier University that nurtures global leaders and innovators” as it strives to achieve the mission “To provide quality education, training, research and consultancy in Science, Agriculture and Technology to meet the needs and aspirations of a dynamic society”.
The University will achieve its vision by engaging in increasingly close cooperation with both its established and new partners and stakeholders in Kenya and abroad. Collaboration creates more impact than individual efforts.
To achieve its vision, the University of Eldoret will focus on six (6) strategic objectives for the period 2019–2024, namely:
- To enhance quality of teaching and learning
- To position the university as a research centre
- To improve governance and corporate image
- To attract and retain competent human resource
- To develop and maintain physical and technological infrastructure
- To strengthen resource mobilization and utilization
The plan describes the key actions designed to deliver against these aspirations and how we will measure achievements.
