Vice Chancellor's Message


Prof. Laban Ayiro
Vice Chancellor, Daystar University

 


I am extremely delighted to join the Great Family of Daystar University as your 4th Vice-Chancellor. I must admit that this task is far beyond my talents and sincerely ask for your prayers and support as we shepherd our University to far higher greatness than it has achieved before.

Daystar being a faith-based institution of higher learning, my mission will be to provide quality and value-added education motivated by a spirit of faith and zeal. I therefore give my commitment to uphold the tenets of our Christian teachings and philosophy within the context of the existential realities of our time. I am determined to offer leadership that will prepare our students for a life dedicated to achievement, leadership, and service to the church and society in line with the University’s vision and mission. I hope to evoke a deep awareness of God's loving presence in our lives and arouse within us a consciousness of our dignity if only we seek to always do what is right. During my tenure as the Vice-Chancellor of Daystar University, I hope to:

  • Foster and invigorate a community of Faith.
  • Celebrate the value and dignity of each person and nurture the development of the whole person by enhancing opportunities in faith formation, academics, and extra-curricular activities.
  • Call for collaboration and shared responsibility in our mission as a Christ-centered University providing Quality Education.
  • Pursue excellence in all our endeavours.
  • Promote Servant Leadership as a way of life well beyond our time at Daystar.

Finally, at Daystar, I envisage a renewed University that will provide a safe and modern learning environment where each student's educational experience will be expanded through the use of technology, and that our diverse learners will be presented with more opportunities for academic enrichment. Under my watch, we will more fully develop each student's social conscience by fostering increased opportunities for meaningful service to humanity.

This is my commitment.

Deputy Vice Chancellor's Finance & Administration Message

Prof. Michael Bowen
Ag. Deputy Vice-Chancellor Finance & Administration

 

Education as Light that Brings Cohesion

The world is facing many challenges and especially problems related with cohesion and unity. This is particularly acute in Africa which is wrought with wars and other forms of dissension.

It is clear that even the most educated people in society have challenges living harmoniously. This is where Daystar University’s education offers the difference.

First, knowledge is seen as bringing light to a person’s mind, illuminating areas that were hitherto dark. In this context, the graduands have received substantial knowledge through the many lectures and interactions as they went through training that took various forms. We can therefore confidently say that our graduands have some measure of light. However, I wish to advise that there is much more that is waiting to be discovered. The quest for knowledge therefore has just began. We challenge you, to continue learning in the school of life. Daystar University equips its students to become servant leaders who will foster cohesion. As Jesus Christ taught, servant leadership focuses on others and not on self. Further, the University seeks to influence not only the minds of its students but also their hearts so that we produce individuals that have emotional intelligence and can be agents of positive change in society.

The Bible admonishes us to live at peace with all men. As graduands, I implore you to be agents of peace and reconciliation wherever you will find yourself. We believe that you have been well trained for this challenge and will, by God’s grace, manifest harmonious living in the world you are being sent to serve.

Remember to keep to the word of God that you have been taught, for it is your light as you go out. Also remember that you carry the name of Daystar University and therefore you represent the University wherever you will be. Go out therefore and be BEACONS OF LIGHT FOSTERING COHESION.

We wish you God’s blessings and favour.
