The University also aims to attract, develop, motivate and retain qualified and compefenf sfaff and ensure at least 5% representation of persons with disability in the University.

  1. Sensitizing staff and students on disability issues
  2. Monitoring and evaluating all disability mainstreaming activities to ensure that SEKU environment is disability friendly
  3. Intensive accessibility audit involving staff from National Council for Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD)
  4. Designating parking areas for persons with disabilities
  5. Sensitising those with disabilities on the importance of registration with NCPWD
  6. Introducing of sign language interpretation during graduation ceremonies
