The Purdue University and Moi University, Eldoret, Kenya, Partnership is a long term partnership, with a short term focus on water issues. The initial planning for this university level partnership with Moi University involved each of Purdue’s colleges and schools.
The primary expected benefit of the partnership with Moi is to develop institutional capacity to work in Africa, to contribute to the development of Moi University, and to partner with Moi to solve challenges such as water issues. The partnership with Moi also offers Purdue the opportunity to partner with the Indiana University Medical School and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).
For Moi the expected benefits of closer links to Purdue include access to educational opportunities for their junior faculty, easier access to experienced collaborators in research, grant writing and scientific publication, and a committed partner in the areas of learning, discovery, and engagement.
