Kenyatta University was established in 1985, as Kenya’s third university. It is based in Kahawa, which is a suburb of Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. It is a modern institution, with well-equipped laboratories and other teaching facilities, state-of-the-art digital communications, including a fibre-optic cable network linking administrative and staff offices, and well-qualified teaching and administration staff. The declared aim of the management team is recognition as a ‘world class university’. However, in spite of the effort to achieve a modern image in teaching and research, the university has embraced the centuries-old tradition of wearing academic dress on certain occasions. [Excerpt].
