Abstract:
A summit held in Dakar 2015 aimed at revitalizing higher education in Africa. This was done despite many efforts to “revitalize” higher education in Africa. The difference is that this initiative has been supported by the African Union because African Heads of State would like to see higher education play a role in helping them achieve the vision outlined in their Agenda 2063 for development. There are various regional initiatives such as the ARUA and HERANA projects to support Africa’s development agenda. The presentation maps out strategies that are being put forward to advance higher education in areas of growth and expansion of systems, funding the systems, expanding research productivity and supporting collaborative work and partnerships.
