Commission for University Education chairman Chacha Nyaigotti-Chacha has raised concern about the rise in the number of low-quality courses offered at institutions of higher learning.
Speaking at Moi University’s main campus during the orientation of acting Vice-Chancellor Laban Ayiro on Thursday, Prof Nyaigotti-Chacha said a policy framework needs to be developed to guide the classification of degree courses.
“When you go to these institutions you find that there are degree courses like bachelor of early childhood or even kindergarten (instead of bachelor of arts). Where are these institutions benchmarking?” he posed.
Prof Nyaigotti-Chacha also urged academic scholars to break their silence over the declining quality of education at some universities.
He urged scholars to collaborate in research and other areas, saying universities should partner with not only international institutions but also local and regional ones.
Uasin Gishu County Deputy Governor Daniel Chemno challenged universities to offer market-driven courses.
During the event, Prof Ayiro pledged to turn around the poor financial and academic state of the university.
