CUE Implements Measures to Enhance Quality of Education

The Commission for University Education (CUE) has implemented measures to enhance the quality of education provided in local universities.

The measures will focus on addressing quality gaps in both undergraduate and graduate studies, ensuring that learners are equipped with the necessary skills for their future assignments.

According to CUE Chair, Prof. Chacha Nyaigotti Chacha, universities must have effective internal mechanisms in place to deliver quality education.

Prof. Chacha urged universities to diversify their income streams by seeking alternative sources of funding, including commercialized research and donor funding, to improve their infrastructure and skilled workforce.

In addition, Prof. Chacha welcomed the review of degree programs to ensure that they are in line with job market demands, thereby enhancing graduate employability.

He also called on universities to implement information management systems to enhance the effective collection, storage, and retrieval of students’ learning history and experiences.

This move would help eliminate missing marks and other related challenges that have hindered some students from graduating.

During the opening of the quality assurance workshop for quality assurance directors in Naivasha, Prof. Chacha affirmed the Commission’s commitment to enforcing measures that ensure quality, relevant, and sustainable university education.

He recognized the role of quality assurance in ensuring that universities provide the highest standard of education to their students.

According to the Commission, there are over 70 accredited public and private universities in the country, and about five foreign ones authorized to partner with local institutions to offer degree programs.

However, lack of adequate funding has affected the quality of education in local institutions. Therefore, the Commission’s CEO, Prof. Mike Kuria, has urged the government to increase its allocations to address this issue.

Prof. Kuria also emphasized the need for universities to catch up with global trends and emerging issues, such as the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and Chat GPT in the learning environment.

These applications will ensure that universities address academic fraud, plagiarism, and fabricated references, which have tainted the quality of education and graduates locally.

Finally, Prof. Kuria announced that universities have started preparing for the uptake of students under the new education curriculum, with the first cohort of learners expected to join universities in 2029.
