The Co-operative University of Kenya has launched its 5 –year Strategic Plan with a strong focus to growing its academic and infrastructure in the next five years. Speaking at the launch of the ambitious blue print on 2nd December, 2017 during the University’s Graduation Ceremony at the Main Campus in Karen, CUE Chairman Prof. Nyagoiti Chacha noted that growth of the University needed a clear focus on the caliber of its graduates. He added that CUK’s strategic plan would give the university council and management a strategic direction to steer the university during the 5-year period. He further congratulated CUK on its ISO 9001: 2015 QMS certification. CUK becomes the 2nd university in Kenya to get this coveted ISO certification.
This certification is a result of the CUK’s establishment, implementation and maintenance of effective documentation and high levels of quality management. The University now proudly joins the elite Group of Global Institutions that embrace best practices for business efficiency and customer satisfaction through the provision of quality service.
This accomplishment will not only increase CUK’s competitiveness and visibility in the market but also establish a criteria to be used consistently in all areas of its operations. The Co-operative University of Kenya remains committed to continually improve service delivery, as this is one of the key pillars contained in the ISO 9001:2015 International Standards.
CUK’s Strategic Plan has been revised to serve the period 2017-2022 from the previous 2015-2020. This strategic plan will develop a Globally Competitive University Excellent in Education, Training, Research and Outreach.
At the heart of this Strategic Plan, is an ambitious project of a state of the art Learning Resource Centre which will cost us Kshs. 2.7 Billion. In its entirety, to implement this Strategic Plan, the University will require a total of 7.4 Billion Shillings in the next five years. We believe this dream will come to fruition.
To realize the objectives of the strategic plan, CUK has articulated the shared Vision, Mission, Strategic objectives, leadership and governance, implementation, monitoring and evaluation strategies and resource requirements for the period July 2017 – June 2022. In developing the Strategic Plan, the university recognized its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. To actualize the strategies and activities outlined in the Strategic Plan, the University will continue to engage key stakeholders and the operational processes will be reviewed continuously to provide any necessary strategic adjustments.
