Makerere University was first established as a colonial university and its challenge is to consolidate and improve on previous bold eforms.
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.

Makerere University has shown tremendous resilience from its establishment as a colonial university, through the economic hardships, political instability and mismanagement that began in the 1970s. It has embarked on an impressive road to recovery involving numerous bold reforms. The challenge now is to harness, sustain, improve and consolidate these changes.

In association with Partnership for Higher Education in Africa; Uganda: Fountain Publishers

NAKANYIKE B. MUSISI is an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto.

"...the book is grounded on empirical data gathered from the university: students, administrators, academics and policy documents. The resulting text is a compelling read for HE administrators, both at government and institutional level, and for researchers and scholars in HE. By interpretation, the book chronicles lessons on how to balance policy decisions, and acts as a guide on how to lead a HE institution to recovery. ...The book is a wealth of information for researchers and administrators alike and is highly recommended for academic libraries. -" Mahlubi Mabizela, MODERN AFRICAN STUDIES
