About the Organizations United States International University-Africa (USIU- Africa) is located in the Kasarani area, off Thika Road in the suburb of Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi. The university is an independent, not-for-profit institution having around 6000 students from all over the world, from undergraduate to PhD level. Kenya School of Government (KSG) formerly Kenya School of Administration combined together with other government training institutes is Kenya’s senior-most institution training policy makers in the country. The Kenya Vision 2030 provides for the establishment of the Kenya School of Government (KSG) as one of the flagship projects to build competences for Government, develop and grow leadership in public service for improved performance in all aspects of service delivery. KSG is responsible for capacity building towards successful devolution in line with the 2010 Constitution of Kenya. USIU-Africa and Kenya School of Government have partnered together since 2011 in running the Crime and Violence Prevention Training which has now completed 4 phases and devolved to the county level, training county level stakeholders from Vihiga and Nakuru. USIU and KSG, with the support of OSIEA and the World Bank Institute have also been involved in bringing county governors and national government administrators together in a meeting in May 2014 (at Enashipai Lodge, Naivasha), to discuss the implications of devolution on security dynamics and management. © Copyrights USIU-Africa/KSG reprinted 2016

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
