Moi University was established in 1984 by an Act of Parliament (Moi University Act, 1984) as the second public university in Kenya.
The University was established with an intention of making it a science, technology and development oriented institution which would focus on problems of rural development in its training and research programmes.
The University is located in Kesses, 35 kilometers from Eldoret Town, and 310 kilometers Northwest of Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. Moi University has expanded tremendously over the past decade and this can be attributed to the commitment of the entire Moi University fraternity, government investment, strategic partnerships, and the visionary leadership of the University Council and Management. These achievements are a testament to the resilience and fortitude of every faculty and staff member who enabled change at a pace and on a scale never experienced before in the country.
