Institutional continuity and change in higher education in Sub-Saharan Africa: An overview of trends and issues

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper explores changes and issues on two broad dimensions of institutional and organizational behavior in higher education in Africa: institutional diversification, and the development of institutional capabilities and responsiveness. Secondary sources—mostly case studies—constitute the bulk of the information base used here. Using databases constructed from these sources, the paper examines changes in the areas of: institutional diversification; the climates for institutional authority and levels of autonomy; the nature of institutional leadership; processes of institutional strategy development; reward and incentive structures; financing and revenue generation activities; and innovation practices related to delivery and outreach.
The paper addresses the question of the source of university reforms and the relative weight of internal and external forces.
The major finding is that successful university transformation programs are possible and that they have come from within those institutions; they were conceived and carried out by those who best know their institutions and the complexity of the issues and problems confronting them.
