New Scott Christian University VC vows to awaken the 'sleeping giant'

By Erastus Mulwa | November 12th 2021

The new vice-chancellor of Scott Christian University has pledged to steer the institution to a rapid path of recovery, expansion and transformation.

Speaking during the university’s 56th graduation in Machakos today, Dr Morompi ole Ronkei (pictured) said his administration will embark on identifying new opportunities as well as reigniting and exploiting Scott’s full potential.

“Scott is a 60-year-old brand. This is probably one of the most underutilised brands in the academic circles. The task for my team and I is to awaken this sleeping giant,” said the VC.

One of his priorities is the proposed collaboration with the AIC Kijabe Mission Hospital to offer medical degree courses.

Ronkei also plans to develop the institution’s 100-acre land in Konza. “Scott is sitting on unrefined gold... We will build a perimeter forest around the piece of land to ensure a minimum of 30 per cent will be under tree cover,” he said.

Chief Justice Martha Koome, who was the chief guest, urged the institution to play its dual role of providing academic fulfilment and spiritual grounding and guidance.
