CEM REPORT, EDUCATION | Pan-Atlantic University, is collaborating with Ashesi University, Ghana to host a meeting of The Education Collaborative scheduled to hold in Lagos on April 27th and 28th .
According to the notice published by the University, the meeting will provide an opportunity for Nigerian universities to learn about The Collaborative’s mission and goals and explore possible ways to engage with the network as well as develop cross-institution collaborations.
Initiated in 2017 by Ashesi University, The Education Collaborative is a network of higher education institutions across Africa, collectively working to improve educational systems and student outcomes on the continent. The Collaborative operates along the key focus areas of entrepreneurship development, career and employability, ethics and leadership development, and faculty development and research.
The Collaborative takes a bottom-up approach, where regional hubs drive context-relevant programs and solutions for higher education stakeholders in the region.
Through an affiliation of institutions across sub-Saharan Africa, The Education Collaborative network will transform over 1.1 million students by 2030 to be ethical, entrepreneurial leaders who create jobs, transform industries, and lead economies.
So far, there are 268 higher education institutions under the network reaching 149,000 students and engaging more than 380 educators and administrators across Africa.
PAU is convening this Nigerian Institutions’ meeting to establish the West-Africa Hub of The Education Collaborative. It is meant to bring together anchor institutions in Nigeria to network, share their strategic focus areas and strengths, learn about current and active programs in The Collaborative, and explore possible ways to engage in the network as well as develop cross-institution collaborations.
