In an effort to participate in solving various problems affecting the country, Kisii University aims at promoting and participating in research, consultancy, and dissemination of knowledge, skills and competency development. The Research and Extension Division has thus been established to co-ordinate research and extension activities for staff and students. This includes co-ordination of linkages, exhibitions, workshops and seminars; soliciting for research funds, and extension. A high premium on continued research and publication by both staff and students is imbedded into the Kisii University’s Strategic Plan.
Currently proposals are being accepted for evaluation and each proposal will be funded to a maximum of 500.000/- Kenya shillings. This is aimed at encouraging academic staff to undertake scholarly activities in research and community service.
Kisii University is also seeking research linkages/collaborations alongside supporting Kisii University Alumni Association. The division is currently preparing a comprehensive policy to provide a framework for guiding research activities.
