The establishment of the University of East Africa in June 1963 brought together in a formal association, Makerere University College in Kampala. the former Royal College in Nairobi and the newly established University College in Dar es Salaam. The purpose of the association was to help the three constituent colleges to use scarce educational resources as effectively as possible and to meet common problems through joint action. The University of East Africa Development Plan for the first triennium was developed with these objectives. 17.73. The most striking feature of the University scene in East Africa. from its inception, has been the speed of growth and development. At University College Nairobi. undergraduate enrolment has nearly trebled in 4 years. rising from 602 in 1964/65 to 1,743 in 1968/69. Accompanying this numerical growth. there has been a corresponding increase in the range of subjects offered at each of the colleges. including Nairobi.
