Promoting and managing links with universities in Africa

Ebong, M.B.

Abstract:
Today in many universities of the world the International Office handles international relations and co-operation with other universities. The University of Port Harcourt does not have an International Office such as most other universities. Rather, the Exchange and Linkage Programmes Unit of the Vice-Chancellor's Office deals with matters of co-operation. This unit also has responsibility for all relations with all outsiders, dealing with donor organizations, and in particular, for developing university' industry- relations and university-university co-operation, within and outside Nigeria. The Exchange and Linkage Programmes Unit has been involved with the establishment of collaborative links with a number of tertiary institutions in Africa during the past three years. Although three years is a rather short period in which to appraise this effort, the experience acquired in the process has been as rewarding as it has been challenging. The high points of the effort of developing links between the University of Port Harcourt and universities in the ECOWAS and SADC sub-regions are presented.
