Pioneer International University, whose vision is to be a world-class market-driven university of excellence for the good of society attaches great importance to this collaboration with VMware, which is a subsidiary of Dell, gaining yet another major partner in the effort to help educators teach in innovative ways in addition to helping institutions reduce cost through the virtualization product that makes it possible to partition a single physical server into multiple virtual machines.
Dell introduced ‘The 2020 Legacy of Good Plan’ in 2013, with ambitious sustainability and social goals to put technology and expertise to work to do good for people and the planet. Pioneer International University intends to pursue further opportunities with Dell to do Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that will tap into the blue economy in an endeavor to continue impacting coastal communities through job creation, women empowerment, digital and financial literacy. Previously Pioneer International University has carried out social projects in Lamu thus creating good working relationships in the area.
