Higher Education Reforms in Africa

The University of Dar es Salaam Experience

edited by Daniel J. Mkude, Matthew L. Luhanga

The purposes of this publication are to record the experiences of the University of Dar es Salaam's reform programmes initiated in the early 1990s' and to present information and the positive aspects of the reform programmes to other African universities or other institutions of higher education in developing countries, so that they may pursue their own programmes without re-inventing the wheel.

Chapters cover: the university in the contexts of higher education delivery in the world, in developing countries, in Africa, and in Tanzania; the historical development of the university up until the time of the reforms; an account and evaluation of how the institutional transformation process began and what it achieved; principles and parametres that might account for the relative success of the reforms; and lessons to be learned.

The book also includes sample questionnaires and notes from interviews with four Vice Chancellors of the university and student leaders.
