Strathmore University is a chartered university based in Nairobi, Kenya.
Strathmore College was started in 1961, as the first multi-racial, multi-religious advanced-level sixth form college offering science and arts subjects, by a group of professionals who formed a charitable educational trust (now the Strathmore Educational Trust). Saint Josemaría Escrivá, founder of Opus Dei, inspired and encouraged them to start the college. It is a Catholic university. Strathmore has a particularly successful accounting program: 60% of the CPA finalists in Kenya come from it in the past ten years, dating back from 2007.
The current Vice-Chancellor of the University is Professor John Odhiambo.
