Your Well Being

Academics should not be pursuit in isolation. We aim at developing the ‘whole’ student. We also recognize that each student has unique qualities and aptitudes and we should provide each one of them an opportunity to do their best and exploit them.

Message from the Dean of Students

Welcome to Chuka University Students Welfare Website. I would like to personally welcome you to Chuka University and to the Division of Students Welfare. A primary goal of the Office of the Dean of Students is to support and provide leadership to several offices and services that will impact your experience at Chuka University. The Assistant Dean of Students and I have the privilege to work in tandem with a team of professionals dedicated to supporting you. We strive to nurture and mould that unique, differentiating factor in each and every one of you by cultivating a healthy, safe and inclusive campus environment where you can maximize your potential while pursuing your educational goals. 

We are advocates for your learning by providing engaging learning experiences for you outside the classroom, and this includes students who may be experiencing crisis, need help in understanding university policies and procedures, need assistance navigating the university experience, or seek advice regarding avenues to resolve an issue.

We collaborate with other departments to bring a range of expertise to respond to individual student needs and challenges effectively. Challenges can include personal or interpersonal issues, family and financial problems, communication problems with faculty or staff on campus, or not knowing where else to go. Each student can expect to be listened to and receive appropriate guidance in working towards a resolution. 

We hope your respective involvements in the university’s more than clubs and associations, or numerous of student life activities we have organised and designed will allow you to become not just future leaders ready to take on the world, but compassionate human beings with a heart for others. I would encourage you to cultivate new friends, attend each other’s events, concerts, ball games and presentations throughout the year, while learning to appreciate the value of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints of your fellow students.
