Case III: University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Githinji, Philip

Abstract:
In this chapter, Githinji provides a brief discussion on the history of the University of Dar es Salaam.  Included are a description of the bodies and councils as well as legal instruments that were formulated to govern and manage higher education in Tanzania.  The functions of  The Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education as well as the Higher Education Accreditation Council are identified.  The promulgation of Tanzania's National Higher Education Policy Document , 1998, stemmed from a serious concern about the lack of a clear and consistent national policy on higher  education. The author identifies some of these problems that occurred in the wake of the changing political and economic environment in Tanzania.  Important policies on provision and governance of higher education and sources of financing higher education are discussed.  The chapter includes a description of the university's transformation process and ongoing transformation activities.
