Our History

The Kenya Methodist University (KeMU) is a Christian chartered private university. It was founded by the Methodist Church in Kenya (MCK). The Church first established Kaaga Rural Training Centre for training
the community in Agriculture and later the Methodist Training Institute (MTI), which became a centre for training Ministers for the Methodist Church. In 1984, the Church decided to establish a university in Kaaga, Meru. In 1987, a committee to develop modalities for establishing the university was formed. In 1995, the Commission for Higher Education (CHE) made an inspection visit of the proposed university and later in June 1997, granted a Letter of Interim Authority to establish Kenya Methodist University. KeMU became a chartered university in June 2006 upon being granted a Charter by President Mwai Kibaki.

University Growth and Development

Since its inception, the university has continued to grow and develop in terms of academic programmes, student numbers, staff, infrastructure and campuses to cater for increasing demand for higher education in
Kenya. Currently, the ccademic programmes are organised within four schools, namely, School of Business and Economics, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, School of Education and Social Sciences and School of
Science and Technology. The establishment and enhancement of the schools and programmes continues to be guided by the university’s Vision, Mission and Philosophy. There were 28 academic departments with a
population of 7,180 students as at December 2017. The university has well-established campuses in Meru, Nairobi, Mombasa and Nakuru. In view of the current developments in Open and Distance Learning (ODL), the university started the ODL mode of learning in 2002 and migrated to the digital platform – Centre for Virtual Learning (CVL), which was renamed Digital Campus in 2016. The digital campus has grown tremendously and currently has over 2,000 registered students, including those from other countries.
