New Multi Media Centre at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa

Nairobi, September, 22nd, 2016 (Amecea). The Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), in Nairobi, Kenya, is set to establish a Multi Media Centre that aims at producing material on justice and peace for sensitization purposes after having received a collection of video cameras, computers and editing software for the Centre.

According to the Vice Chancellor, Justus Mbae, the centre also aims to prepare videos which will be used for University distance e-learning mode of study, and produce media footage for the promotion of the University to the outside world. “As can be seen, through ICT and the Media Centre, CUEA is moving towards the full digitization of its operations,” he said.

Prof. Mbae said the Media centre was made possible through CUEA’s collaboration with Loyola University-Chicago.

He further challenged every member of the University to aim more at using technology in their work more especially the lecturers. He lauded students who have been engaging in creative and innovative ventures noting that the University has launched a Business Incubation centre.

Cardinal Njue urged the lecturers to teach by experience, and model out what students need to become. “As Pope Paul VI (1965) put it, be at the forefront to explore the mysteries of humanity and of the world, clarify them in the light of revelation,” he said.

The cardinal observed that there is need for a connection between the knowledge offered at the university and improvement on the people’s quality of life in the society.

He challenged every member of the University to make CUEA become the University of choice in Kenya, in the AMECEA region and beyond. Cardinal Njue assured the University of his support.
