Abstract:
This working paper represents the outcome of a three-year project that investigates interventions for widening participation  in public and private universities in Ghana and Tanzania.  The project aims to explore factors that facilitate or impede participation in higher education.  The authors describe the role that universities play in poverty reduction programmes and achievements of the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs).  Policy frameworks as well as codes of practice for widening participation of under-represented groups in higher education in Ghana and Tanzania are examined.  The study includes scrutiny of statistical data and interviews with various groups in order to evaluate the success of widening participation initiatives.
