Adequate funding of higher education.

Kayongo, Paul

For any institution to provide the desired quality higher education, adequate funding is a must. It is only when funds are adequately available that the institution, be it public or private, is able to facilitate the implementation of its core educational function. In the face of the increasing inability of the state and parents to adequately fund higher education, how then can an institution of higher learning realize adequate funding? This paper proposes other sources and means, other than the state and parents, can be used to realize adequate funding for higher education. The paper is organized in three parts. The first part is devoted to the desired quality of higher education. The second part focuses on how funding facilitates the achievement of this quality and the third part is about means and sources that institutions of higher learning can use to raise adequate funding.
