Agricultural Education and Extension

The Department of Agricultural Education and Extension was established in 1966 by the then Egerton College in response to Kenya’s recognized need for training manpower to staff positions in agricultural education throughout the country. Its purpose is to provide both ways and means of implementing the mandate given to the University to assist in this worthy endeavor by encouraging and promoting agricultural education throughout all types of agricultural work. This Department and its staff are committed to facilitate the acquisition, accumulation, preservation and dissemination of knowledge and the development of requisite skills and attitudes to effectively tackle the challenges of agricultural development of the 21st century and beyond.
