University Governance

The Co-operative University of Kenya is a fully-fledged public university with a University Council, a Vice-Chancellor, and three Deputy Vice-Chancellors. The University Management Board, the Senate, and various committees are responsible for the day-to-day running of university activities.

The Chancellor

FORMER CUK CHANCELLOR HON. JOSEPH NYAGAH

Joseph Nyagah
HON. Joseph Nyagah

His period at the Cooperative Ministry saw the sector raise its profile to a very high level. This enabled the Cooperative bank to sell its shares to the public through the Nairobi Stock Exchange. CIC and Coop Bank became top in their sector, KUSCO became stronger and opened a beautiful headquarter in Nairobi, ACOSCA was re-launched, Cooperative Alliance of Kenya, SASRA and diaspora Saccos were born, the Matatu Saccos got a new lease of life and youth Saccos were born.

At the same time, he worked on strengthening The Co-operative University of Kenya (the Cooperative College of Kenya) and working closely with Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) and The Ministry of Education. “I am a very proud person to see it become a full-fledged University,” he says with a smile on his face.
Having retired from public life in April 2013, a few months later His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed him to be his Advisor and the National Coordinator of the Northern Corridor Integration Projects (NCIP).
Some of its achievements include faster movement of goods from Mombasa to the hinterland as a result of; cheaper mobile phone calls and money transfer, easier working permits and movement of people; cooperation on major infrastructure projects, joint tourism marketing, and cooperation in security and defense areas.
