Our Work in Leadership, Policy, and Governance

This element of Corporation strategy aims to sustain and further advance higher education reforms, improve higher education leadership, and strengthen higher education policy research and practice in Africa. Our work on higher education policy is unfolding at the time of growing realization on the continent that universities are drivers for economic growth and development. Governments and other national leaders are speaking of the role of universities in the context of Africa’s global competitiveness. The policy component supports a key recommendation of the African Higher Education Summit to further improve the environment for African higher education by promoting the production of policy-relevant research on the higher education sector and evidence-based information to guide higher education policies on the continent.
