Dean's Message

Welcome to the School of Spatial Planning and Natural Resource Management (SSPNRM). It is both an honor and a privilege to welcome you to this amazing school. If you are there feeling different emotions and asking yourself different questions like “Did I make the right choice?” (without a doubt); “Is this worth the sacrifices I have made to get here?” (absolutely); and you are not here by mistake. You are here because you deserve to be. So welcome!

The SSPNRM was established in Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology after the approval by the University in 2010. The School has a mandate to conduct training, innovative research and outreach programmes in spatial planning and natural resource management. The School endeavors to inculcate a problem-solving approach in training in the disciplines of Planning and that of Natural Resource Management as well as in addressing emerging concerns in these two disciplines.  Innovation and application of Science and Technology (STI) is the driving force to maximize the opportunities presented by our natural resources. In human capital development the school is at the forefront in contributing to the National Development Vision 2030 Pillars and Global Sustainable Development Goals through undertaking training, innovative research and outreach programmes. The school of Spatial Planning and Natural Resource management offers transformation (figuratively, not literally), community, and development. These three words will embody your experience at SSPNRM. We will expound this by introducing you to the two departments in the School.
