dc.description A Speech by the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister Raila Odinga, during the 37th Commencement ceremony at USIU-Africa on 22nd August 2015 en_US
dc.description.abstract Vice Chancellor Prof Freida Brown, trustees of USIU, administration, faculty, students, friends of USIU and, most important, the graduating class of 2015, it is wonderful to be here with you. Let me congratulate you Prof Brown for the steady hand with which you have guided this university and ensured planned growth, solid infrastructure, flexible fee payment plan and world-class degree programs. Prof Brown has made a tremendous contribution to our nation. I understand this is the last commencement event under your leadership. I wish you success in your next undertakings. I am proud of you. I admire the diversity of the student body; an international mix from 67 nations from every continent. For a reason, Americans call this commencement day. This is an end and a beginning. It is a great beginning for the class of 2015. You graduate at a time of great changes and momentous challenges both here at home and across the globe. The Millennium Development Goals are coming to an end. In a weeks’ time, world leaders will gather in New York to declare an end to the MDGs and unveil the Sustainable Development Goals. The post-2015 university education agenda is moving from “Education For All” to “Education 2030”, which focuses on ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all. We are equally struggling with significant challenges including insecurity, problems of ensuring inclusion in public affairs, marginalization, corruption, how to strengthen devolution and unemployment. In a very strange twist, tribalism is becoming a problem particularly in public universities. en_US
