Carnegie Corporation of New York’s Africa program focuses on higher education and libraries. This focus has the larger goal of contributing to human capital development in selected African countries, a goal that is in alignment with Corporation’s overall mission. This work in higher education and libraries is seen as an entry point to help African nations produce the necessary human resources and knowledge that can effectively address the larger issues of development and peace and security in Africa. For over a decade, the Corporation has engaged these issues through a series of systematic grants aimed at strengthening the capacity of eight African universities in five countries: Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. With investments from Carnegie Corporation worth about US$150 million and working collaboratively with six other private US foundations in what is known as the Partnership for Higher Education In Africa, the Corporation and its partners have contributed significantly to building institutional capacity and also improving the larger terrain of thinking about and managing universities in these countries. The report on the programme can be found here.
