Future Directions for Higher Education in Africa
Please join us on June 11th for a discussion of higher education in Africa.
Africa is going through a demographic boom with the continent’s population expected to double by 2050. There is a rising middle class which has different spending habits and desires. Almost all African countries are rapidly urbanizing. Many Sub-Saharan African countries are on their way to becoming middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank. As a result of the changing landscape in Africa, demand for higher education has skyrocketed. Many public school systems are poorly funded and are not able to provide quality education to their growing populations. New entrants like private universities and online programs have begun to fill the demand for higher education in Africa. Join us on June 11 for a conversation on future directions for higher education in Africa.
This event is made possible through general support from CSIS.
