Yale University president Peter Salovey is next month expected to arrive in Kenya on an official trip, marking the first ever visit by a senior official of the Ivy League institution since its establishment.

Kenya leads Africa in annual student admissions to Yale University, where Central Bank of Kenya Governor Patrick Njoroge graduated with a PhD in Economics.

“I’ll be travelling to Kenya with Yale’s President, Peter Salovey, March 14-16. It will be the first ever official trip by a Yale President to Kenya since the university’s founding  in 1701,” Yale director for Africa Eddie Mandhry told the Business Daily.
