KCA University Vice-Chancellor Noah Midamba departs next month after 10 years at the helm of the institution. He is the second VC to head the institution after taking over from Prof Daniel Oruoch in 2010.
In 2014, he was decorated with the International Award on Outstanding Contribution to Education by the Advisory Council of World Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors Congress in India for his role in Kenya and Africa.
He is credited with spearheading the review of university admission and placement, a move that led to the creation of Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) to replace the Joint Admission Board (JAB).
Before joining KCA, he served as the CEO and senior partner at US-based International Education and Consulting Services.
Prof. Midamba is an active member of numerous organizations including the Social Enterprise World Forum, Executive Committee of the United Nations Non-Governmental Organizations, International Association of Educators for World peace, College Consortium for International Studies, the Big Brothers and Big Sister Organization, the Rotary Club of Nairobi and the Caux Round Table International. In keeping with the KCA University’s support of national, regional economic development, Prof. Midamba is an active member of the Consortium of Private Universities in Kenya, member of the Inter-University Council of East Africa, Chairman of Samburu Girls Foundation and Member of African Mental Health Research and Training Foundation.
