Achievements

  • The university management has responded to the needs of the girl child by improving the university admission criteria by lowering one point for the qualification requirements to increase the enrollment of girls in the university.This has now enabled more girls to be enrolled in science and Technology based Programmes in the University.
  • The University has committed itself to achieving a minimum of 40% appointment of male and female staff as a way of ensuring gender parity. This has been achieved in several cadres of workers in both academic and administrative staff. Kenyatta University has therefore exceeded the constitutional requirement of 30% representation of either gender in the public and private sector.
  • The centre has also conducted many Dissemination Seminars on the Gender Policy and the Gender Based Violence and Sexual Harassment Policy to both Academic, Non-teaching staff and students.
  • The Center has conducted Training of Trainers (ToTs) workshops for a selected number of students to equip them with skills to disseminate the two policies to other students and also enhance the gender awareness among the student community.
  • The Center participates in marking the Sixteen Days of Activism to end Gender Based Violence in November  every year.
  • The Center in collaboration with Kenyatta University Students Association (KUSA), Kenyatta University Gender Action Movement (KUGAM) organises a Gender Week that ends with the celebration of the International Women’s Day on 8th March, of every year.
