AAP Public Dialogue Series | The Engaged University: working with policy makers and the private sector to advance African higher education transformation: 22 September 2021
Increasingly, universities around the globe have recognized that they must actively engage beyond their campuses and across sectors to upend the traditional perception that they are “ivory towers” that only focus on theory and leave application to disconnected others outside their proverbial walls; or that they engage in research purely for academic purposes and communicate it amongst themselves via journal publications and conferences, with very little engagement with the people outside academia. The universities are now seeing themselves as catalysts for positive change in their communities and beyond. The emergence of the Times Higher Education Impact performance ranking, which assesses universities’ contributions toward achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, is evidence of this trend. To ensure that their work in teaching, learning, and research translates into solutions for global challenges like climate change, poverty reduction, and the global COVID-19 pandemic, higher education institutions are finding creative ways to build bridges to policy makers, the private sector, and local communities. African universities have begun to draft plans, policies, and structures to increase their engagement with external stakeholders who can benefit from the research conducted at the institution and who can inform educational and research programs. This session will examine innovative strategies for African universities to engage across all sectors and the impact these engagements are having the transformation of the African higher education sector.
