Pan-African Dialogue on Transforming Higher Education

January 24th, 2023

On September 27-28, 2010, TrustAfrica and the University of Botswana organized a dialogue on “Trends, Themes, Challenges and opportunities for Higher Education Transformation in Africa.”  The two-day meeting brought together actors from West, East and Southern Africa, as well as the Diaspora, to discuss and develop a work plan for the second phase of TrustAfrica’s African Higher Education Dialogues. 

The meeting also served as a forum for discussing the preliminary findings of the scoping study commissioned by TrustAfrica on higher education in Ghana and Nigeria. An introduction to the higher education landscape in Uganda and Tanzania also was presented, although these two countries are still to conduct their scoping studies.

The African Higher Education Dialogues are a three-year project designed to offer a platform for the strengthening and transformation of higher education in Africa. The three strategic imperatives of the project include:

  • Build an effective platform for engaging in the formulation and implementation of higher education policies in Africa;
  • Initiate and sustain policy dialogues among key stakeholders in Africa; and
  • Leverage resources for higher education transformation in Africa.
