The University College has made a request to the Kenya Rural Roads Authority to assist the in construction of 3km of collector roads and streets within the institution to paved standards in order to improve transportation within TMUC and links with main urban corridor.
Since establishment in 2016, the University College has expanded through increased number of students without a commensurate increase in human resources due to the inadequate funding from the government.
This has led to a big challenge in recruitment of staff to enhance the quality of teaching and research and widen access to higher education and therefore staff recruitment has been prioritized based on needs taking into consideration the available resources.
The current total number of staff is 89 consisting of 30 teaching staff and 59 Administrative staff.
The staff in-post against the projections as per the Strategic Plan 2018 – 2023 are as indicated below.
