The University encourages interaction between researchers and local community. It has already implemented outreach activities which support sustainable development. Through research and outreach programmes, the University supports the economic, educational, social and cultural development activities of the community. The launch of the Mara-Mau Outreach and Resource Centre has helped the University to successfully realize some of the community related activities. The institution contributes significantly to the conservation of natural resources by engaging the student fraternity to plant trees especially in the Mau Forest. It also contributes to preservation of the cultural heritage of Kenya, by promoting the rich culture of the local and indigenous communities, such as, Samburu, Ilichamus and the Maasai whose culture has withstood the test of times, through the cultural week which is held once every year. During the cultural week students are engaged in cultural shows which enhance understanding amongst different communities in Kenya.
