Kenya Methodist University is a chartered Christian university, with the main campus situated in Meru and campuses at Nairobi and Mombasa. KeMU offers PHD, masters, undergraduate, Diploma and Certificate programmes. Kenya Methodist University is the product of a long process of educational planning and development envisioned, proposed and facilitated by the Methodist Church in Kenya. Its conception was brought about by an idea to set up an institution that would respond to the needs of ordinary Kenyans as well as answer to the areas on demand in the market that would encourage communities to develop. In July 1997 the university was officially authorized to operate as a private university through a letter of interim authority from the commission of higher education. Subsequently, the pioneer group of students was admitted in September 1997. The University’s philosophy is to foster the intellectual, spiritual and physical development of the wholesome individual in order to recognize and utilize the available opportunities for enhancement of human development with the appropriate recognition and respect for other creations. This philosophy is therefore based on the belief that God is the creator of Heaven and earth, and the fountain of knowledge, and that the application of knowledge and skills should be guided by Christian values and principles.
