The Transformation of Higher Education in South Africa: How Much Have We Achieved? Perceptions of Policy Developments 1997-2003 and Outlook for the Next Five Years

Luescher, Thierry; Symes, Ashley

Abstract:

This report has been prepared on the basis of research conducted to inform discussion at the Fifth Consultative Conference of the Council on Higher Education (CHE). The CHE Consultative Conference 2003 marks the first five years of the CHE’s work. It takes place at a juncture of accelerated, if contested, policy implementation, which in itself marks a new stage in the policy-making process for higher education. The conference thus serves as an opportunity for the CHE and higher education stakeholders to reflect upon and to debate:
􀂙Higher education policy and its achievements at a systemic and institutional level in the period 1997-2003;
􀂙The role of different actors and circumstances, as well as active and passive choices that have shaped the current state of the higher education system;
􀂙The extent of what has been achieved in relation to what was intended;
􀂙The achievability and value of policy goals;
􀂙The roles of individual organisations into the future, with a focus on their vision, their concerns, and how they envisage their interaction and engagement in the emerging higher education scenario.
