NDU-K Participates in International Military Education Workshop
The Vice-Chancellor (VC) of NDU-K, Maj Gen Said Farah, was among African military education leaders who recently participated in a workshop to deliberate on the role of that military education plays in advancing military professionalism.
The workshop, whose theme was ‘Advancing Military Professionalism Through Professional Military Education (PME) was held at National Defence University (NDU) in Washington DC, under the auspices of the African Centre for Strategic Studies (ACSS). It brought together military education leaders from eighteen African countries, to participate in cross-country networking, peer learning and experience sharing by African and U.S. PME institutions. The event also aimed to bring to light opportunities to advance professionalism and create common culture through PME and highlight relevant areas of collaboration.
Accompanying the VC were Commandant, Kenya Military Academy (KMA), Maj Gen John Nkoimo and Director International Peace Support Training Center (IPSTC), Brig Joyce Sitienei, who also doubled as a member of the ACSS facilitation team. KMA and IPSTC are Colleges of NDU-K.
The VC also took the opportunity to have a series of strategic meetings with key NDU leaders on the sidelines of the workshop. Talks during the meetings revolved around best practices with particular emphasis on university structure, relationships with Colleges, research collaboration, and library development, among others.
