Higher Education Convening Tanzania: The Role of ICT in University Governance in Tanzania

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are widely deployed in Tanzanian Universities mainly for the purpose of provision and accessing information and automation of administrative processes. In this paper we review briefly the challenges faced by Tanzanian Universities in integrating ICT and the role of ICT in University governance. We also explore ICT trends which are having or likely to have impact on University business processes including teaching, research, community engagement and administration. We conclude by noting that ICTs have the potential to considerably improve University governance when properly and adequately deployed taking advantage of mobile and cloud computing applications.
