MMUST students will benefit from joint supervision by lecturers from Ball State University and MMUST.Addressing a delegation of Faculty members from Ball State University, U.S.A who had come to pay him a courtesy call on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 Prof. F.A.O Otieno lauded the collaboration between the two institutions. He noted that joint supervision will help students to gain different perspectives on issues.

Prof. Winnie Muchera, team leader of the Ball State university delegation of six professors noted that joint research teams between the two institutions will enhance the quality of education. Prof. Otieno observed that there is need to re-think the positioning of Early Childhood Development education in Kenya. He conceded that Kenya as a nation has got it wrong as young children of ages three to seven are subjected to a rigorous system that calls for the children to leave home as early as 5.00 am to acquire an education. He said that the children risk their lives due to the stringent system and this negates the overall objective of provision of education. The VC challenged researchers to carry out studies that should address the anomaly.

The visit by the faculty members from Ball State University, U.S.A is a culmination of the collaboration between MMUST and Ball State University which started way back in 2007 and has seen staff and students benefit from the collaboration. Plans are underway to cascade the collaboration from the Education Psychology department to the rest of the university.
