|BUILDING CAPACITY FOR LEADERSHIP AND QUALITY|
SARUA hosts strategic events to engage with senior leadership and stakeholders on key higher education trends, and their implications for higher education in the SADC. The perspectives that these events will provide will inform the Association’s medium-term strategy and 5-year strategic priorities.
Leadership and management development
The need for the professionalization of higher education leadership and management is acknowledged internationally. SARUA will work with international agencies, as well as national higher education organisations to provide capacity development opportunities for university leaders and managers, such as faculty deans, departmental heads and the heads of administrative and support sections. These opportunities will range from shorter workshops and seminars, to short courses and formal programmes.
