ABOUT AHERI

For higher education to be entrusted to combat illiteracy among the citizens and foster development,  there is need for a greater understanding of institutions of higher education and the resources available to them to enable them to achieve this task. The greatest advancements and most instrumental inventions in our times have been in the area of information technology. Information technology is billed to be the most influential factor in any undertaking, improving efficiency and increasing quality tremendously in the long term. It is for this purpose that (AHERI) was established.

OUR GEOGRAPHICAL FOCUS

AHERI will eventually focus on Africa as opposed to individual countries because the initiative would be more sustainable. This is due to the fact that the overhead cost of individual country or institutional investment into the initiative would be prohibitive. The countries in this region are also interconnected economically and socially hence gains made in one country can easily be lost or have reduced effect if others are not taken into effect.

OUR BACKGROUND

The demand for higher education in Africa far outweighs the spaces available in the higher education institutions. The situation has partly resulted from the disproportionate increase of primary and secondary enrolment and completion rates compared to limited increase of higher education spaces. Further, Africa has the highest growth rate of enrolment in higher education compared to other areas of the world. If the situation is not managed then Africa will remain a paradox of great knowledge resource but limited development.

The situation has been compounded by the fact that higher education as a field of study and profession is still new in most Africa higher education sector. The unique context of the challenges facing the countries in Africa requires research on the circumstances with a view of developing local solutions. This will not only help in solving the present challenges in management of higher education but provides an opportunity for the higher education institutions to act as catalysts in providing solutions to developmental challenges.
