The School is actively involved in environmental management activities including tree planting and landscaping. Between 2011 and 2013, SENRM partnered with various ‘friends of environment” such as Kitui Government’s Ministry of Energy, Kitui field office of the Kenya Forest Service, and Tiva Youth Group in Kwa Vonza in a project to green SEKU during the November-December rains and planted over 5,000 tree seedlings at the University’s Main Campus. In 2013, the school spearheaded the establishment of the University tree nursery, which currently serves as a source of tree and flower seedlings for greening and beautification of the university grounds and for income generation. SENRM has provided over 10,000 tree and flower seedlings which have been planted in the university compound and the surrounding community. During the 2015 SEKU Cultural Week, the university nursery provided 2,825 tree seedlings for planting at various points in and outside the University.
On research and outreach, SENRM is partnering with likeminded institutions. Some of the ongoing research includes: SEKU-ICRAF Collaboration on Calotropis domestication; SEKU-Magadi Collaboration on selection of fast growing, drought resistant tree species for fuelwood generation; SEKU-KU Collaboration on LUFORUM biodiversity; Participation in SEKU-Belgian ASALI Project implementation.
