The theme for the HEFAALA symposium is “Academic Collaboration in Africa, Asia, and Latin America in the Post-COVID World”. The 20th International conference on Private Higher Education in Africa will also be held under the theme: “Embracing New Realities and Paradigms: Africa’s Higher Education Response”.
The conveners and partners for these important events include the African Union Commission; the Association of African Universities; Saint Mary’s University, Ethiopia; the International Network for Higher Education in Africa; The University of KwaZulu-Natal; Mastercard Foundation; Carnegie Corporation of New York; the Program for Research on Private Higher Education (PROPHE), USA ; and the Ministry of Education, Ethiopia.
The events will also feature Masterclass Workshops (restricted enrollment) under the theme “Building Leadership of Young Academics: The Power of Academic Collaboration” . These will run from 25 to 29 April 2022 and are effectively embedded in the Conference and the Symposium.
We look forward to your participation and contributions, as we jointly discuss practical ways to foster collaborations and embrace new realities and paradigms in African Higher Education
