Dialogue #1 - Covid-19 Pandemic: Responses and lessons learned from African universities

 

29 April 2020

 

As nations continue to come to terms with coping and finding solutions to the challenges that have beset them with the onslaught of COVID-19, the Alliance for African Partnership has established a public dialogue series with speakers including the Vice Chancellors, researchers and other relevant staff at AAP consortium universities, as well as representatives of the public and private sector, funding partners, think tanks, and NGOs, among others. The first of the dialogue series focussed on the first responses and lessons learned from African universities in their approach to tackling Covid-19.

University leaders from across the continent came together to discuss their institutions' response to the crisis and shared best practices on how to move forward. The following university leaders joined the dialogue:

  • Barnabas Nawangwe, Vice Chancellor, Makerere University
  • Ibrahima Thioub, Vice Chancellor, Cheikh Anta Diop University
  • Rose Mwonya, Vice Chancellor, Egerton University
  • David Norris, Vice Chancellor, University of Botswana
  • Moderator: Paul Zeleza, Vice Chancellor, US International University - Africa
