The role of universities in promoting cooperation between social and pure scientists for human development in Kenya

Nafukho, Frederick

Abstract:
This paper discusses the development of university education in Kenya with emphasis on the premise that university education and training programmes are expected to respond to the demands of national development and emerging socioeconomic needs with a view to finding solutions to problems facing society. The author claims that this implies that Kenyan universities must adopt an indisciplinary approach to instruction and research in order to serve the country effectively as an engine of social and economic transformation. The paper examines five mojor issues, namely, ( 1 ) the development of university education in Kenya; ( 2 ) the link between university education and job market in Kenya; ( 3 ) the development objectives of African countries with special emphasis on Kenya; ( 4 ) the function of universities in the process of human development in Kenya; and ( 5 ) problems confronting universities and how they should be addressed.
