Dear USIU-Africa Community,

Our attention has been drawn to a story aired on Saturday Feb. 17, 2017 on Citizen TV in both their 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm news on Saturday Feb 17, 2017 where United States International University – Africa (USIU-Africa) featured. The story, purportedly based on the recently concluded Commission for University Education (CUE) Quality Audit report, clustered USIU-Africa among universities that had improper graduation lists.

We wish to confirm that the University went through a quality audit inspection in January, 2017. During the process, our teams provided information and feedback as required. All the issues raised were responded to satisfactorily and the report was eventually signed by both USIU and the auditors.

Presented at the Ali A. Mazrui International Symposium, Southern Sun, Westlands, Nairobi, July 16, 2016.

Let me begin by thanking the organizers for the singular honor of presenting closing remarks at this important symposium. It has given me the opportunity to meet many old friends, some that I haven't seen for many years.

I wish to thank all of you who participated in the demonstration this morning. It was truly an impressive event. We showed the world the real character and quality of USIU-Africa. It was peaceful, powerful, and even joyful, a model on how to exercise democratic and constitutional rights responsibly. I felt immensely proud of being a member of this extraordinary university.
