Governance challenges of the 21st century in the East African universities.

Kiganda, Christine R. M.

Abstract:
The paper reviews some of the generic challenges that regularly confront the governance of universities in the Eastern Africa region. From the perspective of University Councils, the challenges presented are viewed  as both positive and negative forces that spur the leaders forward to improve their systems of governance. They include issues of governance, financing, unplanned university growth, staff welfare and training, students’ welfare, ICTs, and gender-related governance challenges. Using the Makerere University perspective, the author draws from direct engagements with some of the mentioned critical challenges as well as some glimpse of the outstanding progress that have been achieved by many of the universities. The paper retreats into the 20th century where most of the challenges originate while focussing on the 21st century  to stimulate a discussion that would forge a common path  for universities in the region into the future.
