The Universities Information Technology Teaching Professionals (UITTPs) with better ICT integration index can have better influence to the graduates’ ICT integration level. ICT integration index levels of University ICT teaching professionals reveal that they would still not integrate ICT at transformative levels .Situational analysis of the UITTPs ICT integration index is the foundation for continuous improvement of the UITTPs ICT integration. Situational Analysis is an important technique in designing progressive systems especially social or socio technical systems. It ensures continuity and therefore improves integrations. The aim of this study was to determine current ICT integration levels, The study adopted design based mixed research approach by undertaking a desktop research and descriptive survey to identify existing metrics by purposively sampling 3 public and 3 private Kenyan universities Professionals teaching Information Technology and computing departments and chairs of departments. The surveyed findings were quantitatively and qualitatively analyzed descriptively and inferentially using Kendall’s correlation coefficient. Currently UIITP integrate ICT at level III , despite the existence of essential conditions, these University ICT Expert Lecturers would still not integrate ICT at transformative levels .Therefore it is recommended that there is need to continuously support integrators and monitor them . The UITTPs current index of ICT integration can improve the graduates’ ability’s effective use of ICTs. The UITTPs with higher index will expose students to relevant ICT experiences during their teaching while those with low indexes can be supported more through continuous learning.
