Message from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics, Research and Extension)

Egerton University's Commitment to Research Excellence

Prof. Bernard O. Aduda,
DVC (Academics, Research and Extension)

It is with immense pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to all participants of the 15th Biennial International       Conference, representing the pinnacle of academic inquiry at Egerton University. As Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academics, Research, and Extension), I am honored to witness the culmination of our institution's steadfast dedication to fostering research excellence.

At Egerton University, we hold steadfast to our commitment to prioritize research across all fronts, from budgeting to infrastructure and staffing. Our Strategic Plan serves as a compass, guiding our endeavours towards world-class status by emphasizing the quality of students, teaching and learning facilities, research outputs, ICT resources, and prudent funding allocation and utilization.

This year's conference stands as a testament to our unwavering dedication to advancing knowledge. By opting for a blended conference format, combining virtual and in-person participation, we have ensured that researchers from diverse backgrounds and geographical locations can come together to exchange ideas and forge meaningful collaborations. I urge all participants to fully engage with the programme, seizing the opportunity to interact with presentations and speakers of interest.

With an impressive array of abstracts from esteemed institutions worldwide, including universities and organizations, we anticipate lively and thought- provoking discussions during the conference period, spanning from the 19th to the 21st of March 2024. I extend my deepest appreciation to the Organizing Committee, led by

Dr. Miriam Charimbu under the direction of the Director of Research and Extension, Prof. Nancy Mungai, for their meticulous planning and execution, ensuring a seamless and enriching experience for all attendees.

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the 15th Biennial International Conference at Egerton University.
