The need for a strong and effective public-private partnership in the provision of higher education in Uganda.

Kayongo, Paul

Abstract:
The provision of the desired quality and accessibility of higher education has been and continues to be a major challenge facing tertiary institutions in Uganda. Notwithstanding the fact that the public and private sectors have each contributed remarkably to the expansion of Uganda's higher education, its accessibility continues to elude many high school leavers; yet the didactic services provided to those who join it continue to fall short of stakeholder expectations. This paper asserts that this scenario has persisted because the public and private sectors have largely been working independently of each other in this sector. It therefore argues that the scenario would have been avoided had the sectors effectively worked together. Subsequently, the paper recommends that the desired breakthrough can be realized by forming a strong and effective Public-Private Partnership (PPP). The paper is divided in five parts. The first part focuses on the methodology used to come up with the paper; the second part is on the quality of higher education, third on accessibility of higher education; and the fourth on forms of PPP, and the fifth part focuses on the need for a strong and effective PPP in the provision of the desired quality and accessibility of higher education in Uganda. It also highlights areas that demand critical attention if the PPP is to be as strong and effective and desired.
