The College held its highest enroll ment in its 23 year old history at 1,307. The School ofTheology (SOT) is the larg est Institute in the College followed by Christ the Teacher Institute for Education (CTIE), Institute of Social Communication (ISC), Institute of Social Ministry in Mis sion (ISMM), Institute of Spirituality and Religious Formation (ISRF), Institute of Youth Ministry (IYM), Maryknoll Institute of African Studies (MIAS) and the DePaul Program, School for New Learning. Given the concern of the Global econo my and the struggles for school fees and re lated expenses, the College has faired well. Most of our Institutes and the School of Theology held Symposia's on a variety of issues of concern that are current and both, internationally and nationally recog nized in academia as well as in social issues particular to the continent of Africa and localized as well to the country of Kenya. Two of our Lecturer's authored seri ous studies in the form of publications. These are: "Caught In-Between" a publica tion well researched in a school setting in Kenya by Dr. Nyambura Owinyo,Assistant Co-ordinator of the DePaul Program and "Ministerial Formation in Africa Today" au thored by Mr. Aloys Ojore -Assistant Di rector, ISMM. We continue to encourage both, re search and publications among our Admin istration, Faculty and Staff as well as our students as the future unfolds. Our first Graduation of the newest program here in Tangaza, the DePaul School for New Learning, took place as the first semester concluded with thirteen students successfully completing a first degree. This year, School ofTheology had their own Baccalaureate Mass and Commence ment exercise in January, 2009 with I 0 I theologians graduating. In recent months, the Institute of Christ The Teacher, MIASMU, Institutes of Spirituality & Religious Formation and of Social Ministry in Mission all held their Graduation Liturgies and commencement ceremonies - May 2009. In October, the Institute of Social Min istry, Social Communication and the Insti tute of Youth Ministry will participate in the degree Commencement at Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Nairobi. The Tansa Council and the various student commissions were most active throughout the year, both in the develop ment of academic excellence and in the areas of social events and community ser vice. The elections which took place in April were well handled by the electoral com mission and the process was completed without a hitch. The challenge of revising the Student Constitution has been a long and arduous task. However, this year found the Council determined to finish the task and move it to the administration for ap proval. It was approved in April this year. Strategic Planning continues to be a priority at Tangaza College and this last year the Board of Governors, now called the Board of Trustees (such is the legal status in Kenya for Higher Education Insti tutions), approved a new structure to fur ther enhance the growth and maturation of the College.
