Student organization of Kibabii University with their dean of students Dr. Alice Mutai and the chaplain Dr. Leonard Juma were received by the acting dean of students Kabarak University Dr. Dorcas Githaiga, assistant dean Mr. Dishon Mngoda, the chaplain Rev. Justus Mutuku and the Kabarak University Counselling team at Kabarak University Online Center (KABUO). They visited the University to benchmark the Kabarak University student Organization (KUSO) led by the president miss Lorraine Koskei and to understand how Kabarak counselling and chaplaincy departments work.
The chaplain in his introductory speech invited the visitors to take the most they could from that visit and thanked them for choosing Kabarak University.
The two student councils from Kibabii university and Kabarak University had a very serious interactive forum on matters of leadership. Kabarak University student council has 15 members who run different dockets like spiritual affairs, hostels, social affairs, health and catering, library, and academics and sports. The members are duly elected by the students to represent their needs. From the laughs and the smiles from the boardroom, it was evident that the Kibabii student organization was having a moment of a lifetime with our student council.
The counsellors in a separate room had real engagement on counselling and mental health. The Kibabii counselling team got to understand how the counselling department runs effectively. The counselling department is one of the most active departments in this university and a lot has been seen from their desk recently including the mental awareness week that ran successfully for a week towards the end of last semester.
The chaplains discussed chaplaincy and pastoral duties in universities. The synergy of Rev Justus Mutuku, chaplain Kabarak University, and Dr. Leonard Juma was on another great level and you could tell they were learning from one another.
