We refer to recent media reports on intended closure of some Universities, including The Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA). Our University was audited by the Commission for University Education (CUE) last year (2017) in January, September and December. The first audit was a general quality audit targeting all Universities in Kenya and was requested by the Ministry of Education. The September audit was impromptu following reports and complaints received by CUE, while the December audit was for regular recertification. The recent reports covered by the Media may have arisen from the September audit.
The Catholic University is implementing a turn around strategy that involves restructuring and rationalisation of its administration staff and other resources aimed at ensuring sound financial operations. Further clarification may be shared as follows:
We assure all our stakeholders that CUEA is doing all that is needed to remain in operation as a chartered University.
