dc.description An Interview with Prof. Frieda Brown, outgoing V.C with Jackson Biko, a Writer at Business Daily en_US
dc.description.abstract After 21 years running USIU-A – and about 15,000 students later – Prof Freida Brown is curtsying out. It’s been a long road for a girl who was born in the small town of Hopkinsville, Kentucky, US, but grew up in St Louis, Missouri. When she came back to Kenya in 1994 as the VC (she first came in 1990 as a visiting lecturer), she didn’t plan to stay, but the universe conspired and 21 years later, she is still here, having seen two generations pass through her hands at the institution. Fittingly, she sat at the head of a large moody-surfaced table in her boardroom for this interview. Behind her, on a large glass-wall unit, sat numerous trophies illustrating her career. She was contemplative, reflective, funny and, often, emotional. Twice, tears sprung to her eyes. Prof Freida Brown - Vice Chancellor, United States International University. AGE: Retirement age. Career: Founding Chair | Kenyan Association of Private Universities Academia, Education and Training Board member | Kenya Commission for Higher Education Academia, Education and Training Board member | Federation of Kenya Employers Academia, Education and Training Secretary to the Board | United States International University Education Michigan State University Masters - Developmental Psychology Michigan State University PhD - Developmental Psychology Washington University en_US
