The one day stakeholders’ workshop presided over by the CUCK Principal Prof. D. Shitanda saw the strategic plan ventilated upon to include views and reasons of all the stakeholders. Prof. Shitanda marked that as the University College geared up towards being a fully fledged University, it needed development path to travel in revamping the existing infrastructure to cater for the expected growth in terms of staff and students’ population. He noted that the CUCK is a champion in Global Co-operative trends and it must remain afloat.

Key among other issues deliberated upon in the forum was the key strategic corporate objectives of the plan meant to achieve the following:

  1. Congratulations in your endeavours. I have been reading some documents concerning the development of co-operatives of the East African countries. I would like to comment softly that your recent forum which took place in the main campus, was dated Friday 24th May 2015 and posted into your website. I feel you probably might have meant Friday 24th April 2015. Accept my very high regards. Nju Charles.
