Egerton University Broadens Its Revenue-Generating Activities

Egerton University Broadens Its Revenue-Generating Activities.

Egerton University has begun plans to revamp its revenue-generating units in order to reduce its reliance on government funding.

Prof Isaac Kibwage, Vice-Chancellor of the University, stated that the university has established a Mini-mart on its Njoro main campus to help the institution sustain itself beyond the funding it receives from the government and research.

The VC stated that diversifying the University’s products and services would provide long-term revenue streams in addition to meeting market demand for goods and services.

During the launch of the venture, Kibwage told staff and students that the University Council had a vision of establishing Income Generating Units (IGU), and that the opening of the minimart was a step towards their goal of increasing and diversifying University income.

He went on to say that through IGUs, the University would be able to commercialize its innovations, making them more marketable.

The VC was pleased that all IGUs would embrace cashless payment services, particularly the use of till numbers rather than the pay bill option, which he claimed would attract more customers, particularly students.

He also stated that the University intends to expand innovative products and services for each IGU to meet customer needs in the retail market and that the mini-mart would house various University units such as the Gift Shop, Guilford Dairy, University Press, Knitting and Tailoring, Agro park, and Catering IGU.
