Welcome to the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Moi University. The importance of Agriculture in Kenya’s socio-economic development, agro-industrialization and above all, achievement of food security, is widely acknowledged. The School of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Moi University was re-established in 2014 following the elevation of Chepkoilel campus to a University College and subsequently to University of Eldoret. The school has launched academic programs that are both market driven and solution oriented to the industry.
Through its programs, the School provides a foundation that enables students to engage in scientific, societal, psychological and political dimensions of agriculture and environmental change. Further, the focus on solutions in Agricultural Sustainability with its orientation towards applied learning help students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills towards challenges posed by climate change.
