University of Nairobi Gender Policy
PDF version

The University’s overall aim is to create and sustain a fair and just academic environment where men and women have equal opportunities, voice, rights and access to resources, so that persons of both genders can realize their full potential and contribution within a community of scholars with a culture of mutual respect.

In order to achieve this aim the University will:

  1. Ensure gender-responsive management and administration of the University and equity in all teaching and research programmes
  2. Reach out to marginalised groups especially women, girls and boys from poor backgrounds (ASALs, rural areas and slums) to enable them enjoy the benefits of University education
  3. Establish appropriate administrative structures for carrying out the policy; and
  4. Work closely with the Government of Kenya and its partners to obtain the necessary resources for implementation of this policy
