The African University of the 21st century faces many challenges – challenges of relevance, sustainability, student access, student success as well as, very important so, a myriad of staff challenges.
The call is therefore for a new type of Professional and Support Service staff (PASS), senior and executive staff who fully understand the imperatives of the 21st century and who are able to translate the institutional goals of the Higher Education Institution into aligned Registry, Human Resources as well as Financial Objectives, policies and procedures as well as actions to support the sustainable success of the particular Higher Education Institution (HEI).
PASS environments that are not fully aligned with and able to support the VC and other academic leaders in the HEI, can seriously impede the HEI in it’s strive to fulfill the desired vision of the particular institution.
This is the reason why the AAU, in response to the needs articulated by its member universities, has decided to focus on the key roles that need to be fulfilled by the Registrar and Heads of Finance and Human Resources, during the next workshop.
