Coping with the challenges of higher education in the twenty-first century.

Kajubi, William Senteza

Abstract:
The importance of education cannot be overemphasised. Education is the key to addressing some, if not all the major problems confronting the world. Challenges such as respect for human rights, democracy and the promotion of peace, preservation of the ecosystem, combating corruption, ethnicity, genocide and all forms of violence against society are intimately linked to the problem of education. The chapter discusses the importance of higher education in poverty eradication and the challenges faced in Africa, such as economic challenges of widening gaps between the rich and the poor, economic growth without social development, challenges of education access, relevance, and quality among others.Suggestions include the need to use existing  university talents to adress the above problems. Providing enabling environments in universities in order to harness the available talents to the full is emphasized for the way forward.
