Research is one of the core functions of KAFUCO. This is embodied within the mission of the institution in which the University Colleges pledges to be “University of excellence providing quality education and training, research and innovation to meet the needs of a dynamic society”. The Directorate supports training of graduates to not only acquire knowledge but also contribute to generation of services provision to the society and Human Resource Development and take part in nation building to contribute to the realization of Kenya’s Vision 2030, Sustainable developments and the Big 4 Agenda. The Institution requires all members of the academic staff and students to be involved in research activities at several levels of their training and professional career. The KAFUCO small pool of researchers is relatively young and enthusiastic which attracts collaborative projects and enhancement of the research capacity and capability.
