The Directorate has continued to create Gender and Equity awareness among staff and students through workshops, seminars and international symposiums. The issues discussed during these engagements have always emphasized the critical mass of knowledge that can be gained through transformational leadership styles by all genders. The emphasis has also been on nurturing the virtue of inclusivity as a necessary input for the creation of a fair and just society. All these are in line with what has been captured in the strategic direction and implementation matrix of our universities strategic plan and the Directorate’s objectives.
At the moment, the Directorate’s committee is planning to host a symposium on Gender, Peace and Security in an effort to engage all and particularly the youth in activities that will eventually contribute immensely to their own development and that of their respective nations.
Maasai Mara University currently enjoys cooperation with Aarhus University-Denmark and Justus-Liebeg- Universitat Giesen in Germany, the University of Nairobi, Karen Blixen Camp and Mararianda Community. This was initiated by the Directorate. The focus is on the challenges of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve ecosystem.
