Higher Education Policy and Research

OUR WORK IN HIGHER EDUCATION POLICY AND RESEARCH


Support for higher education policy and its implementation among African policymakers, philanthropists, and educators is essential to meeting the continent’s growing needs. Gaining such support requires evidence-based data that demonstrates how universities are contributing to socio-economic and national development. The Corporation’s investments to date have created a baseline set of data on a select number of African universities, which has been used by national and continental policymakers and a cohort of institutional planners. To advance higher education policies and practice, the Higher Education Policy and Research subprogram supports efforts to generate and disseminate data-driven research and publications on Africa’s higher education sector, and build capacity for research management. Grants aim to gather and disseminate evidence-based research and advance expertise.
