Special needs comrades feted by University of Nairobi’s Dean of Students

In a ceremony organized by the Office of the Dean of Students, the special needs UoN students who graduated in December 2018 were congratulated and celebrated on Wednesday evening January 24, 2018, at the Council Chamber.

“This is a great achievement not only for you but also for the University,” affirmed Ms. Phaustine Khaoya, Acting Registrar, office of the Dean of Students on behalf of the Dean of students, Father Wamugunda.

She said that the objective of the ceremony was to congratulate and celebrate those that graduated and encourage the continuing students to see that it is actually possible.

In the Wednesday evening ceremony, Director, Office of Career Services, Mr. Johnson Kinyua, assured his office’s support to the graduates in terms of internships and placement in industry. “This is the office responsible for assisting students’ transition from learning to earning. “ He added that the University Council has approved a budget that involves making the University more inclusive.

He promised to willingly share the information on opportunities with the graduates and even negotiate on their behalf.

Mr. Njoka from the Placement office also congratulated the graduates and wished them well in their endeavors. He pledged support from his office that will be operating under the office of the Career Services.

On his part, UNSA Chairman, Antony Manyara cited the efforts made by the management in ensuring that the special needs students move and study with ease. He, however, noted that the University should allow the special needs students more time to take their exams and he also addressed the issue of guides for the representatives of Special Needs students in UNSA at all times.

Unanimously, the graduates expressed their interest in scholarships to enhance their studies and their desire to work at the University of Nairobi. They challenged the institution to give them opportunities to use the skills they have learned here at the University for the University.
