Every year, we mark Dedan Kimathi week on the week that falls on the 18th February. During this week, we celebrate the hero Dedan Kimathi Wachiuri after whom our institution is proudly named. The significance of 18th February is that it was on this date in the year 1957 that Wachiuri died. To commemorate him, the University staff and students engage in various activities with and for the community like charity work, town cleaning, public lectures in line with liberation; history and the place the community holds in freedom and on the final day (Saturday), the University in collaboration with the Nyeri Golf Club hosts a Golf Tournament towards building the University’s Endowment Fund.
