Gender in the Making of the Nigerian University System

by Charmaine Pereira

  • Description
  • Reviews
Maps the changing character of the university system in Nigeria, focusing on gender.
The Partnership for Higher Education in Africa commissioned case studies of higher education provision in Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa, as part of its effort to stimulate enlightened, equitable, and knowledge-based national development, and to provide guides to understanding.

This study asks four major questions about gender in the Nigerian university system: How have gendered structures and processes at thecontextual and systemic levels affected universities? In what ways have the workings of the university system contributed to gender differentials? How have women contributed to policy issues in university education? What are thegender implications of existing reforms of the university system?

In association with Partnership for Higher Education in Africa; Nigeria: HEBN
"The volumes [in the series] provide an invaluable source of comparative financial and institutional data for what one hopes will be a growing field of African higher education studies. -" David Mills, AFRICAN AFFAIRS
