Kenya: Moi University


Kenya Magazine IUPUI Geography professor Rick Bein poses with Karatina University College student Valetine Oseso at the Ecological Resource Center at Naro Moru, in the rainshadow of Mount Kenya, Fall 2011.

Moi University is one of the leading universities in Kenya, indeed in all of East Africa. There is great opportunity for meaningful engagement for faculty, staff, and students from both institutions in a whole host of arenas, including faculty and curriculum development, institution building, student and faculty exchange, collaborative research projects, distance education, study abroad programming, and expanding the impact and outreach of the extraordinary work being done with respect to HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention.

"This is the most comprehensive partnership anywhere on the African continent between an American and an indigenous educational institution."
--US Ambassador to Kenya, Michael Rannebergher
