One of the greatest achievements a person who has achieved a Bachelor’s degree, a Master’s degree and a Doctorate degree can achieve is: the founding of a University that will award degrees. Professor Philliph Mutisya, is finalizing the Kenya University Project - PhD Founders Plan that will have 30 Diaspora doctorate degree holders and scholars who shall become founders of Diaspora University.

The founding scholars will contribute education courses that will become the knowledge each scholar transfers back to Kenya for Kenya development. The scholars will also input professional expertise as they open the university schools and departments working hand in hand with WPI University.  

In 2006, Professor Arthur Gerstenfeld and the late Professor Raphael Njoroge, when in WPI would start the idea that has today become the Diaspora University. Prof. Mutisya who visited WPI University and met with the Deans of business and engineering, head of departments, director of project based learning and also toured the WPI fire protection engineering research laboratory liked the WPI project-based learning approach that will be implemented in the new university.    

The diverse knowledge the 30 Scholars will bring to the new university will empower young men and women with knowledge to develop Kenya for themselves and for future generations.
