This year’s annual report highlights HED’s impressive portfolio of international partnerships and the program’s key roles in strengthening the capacity of higher education faculty, institutions, and communities. Between October 2011 and September 2012, HED managed 70 partnerships in 37 countries involving 83 host-country and 57 U.S. institutions. These partnerships bring forth innovative courses, new degree programs, advanced teaching methodology, improved access to education, and the engagement of thought leaders at local, regional and national levels.
Higher Education for Development, through funding from the United States Agency for International Development, commissioned a study by the Association of African Universities to map a strategy for institutional capacity building in senior and middle level management and leadership for sub-Saharan African higher education institutions.
