28th Conference of the Association of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (AVCNU) – FUTA 2013

The Nigerian University System and the Challenges and Prospects of Globalisation
The Nigerian population is now estimated at 170 million, yet our current systems and institutions only directly reach a small minority. Besides, the country faces daunting social and economic challenges. Unless we come up with a very different vision for the future, large segments of our population will be excluded from the benefits afforded to a highly educated and skilled population, and most of our products would be unable to contribute meaningfully in the development process. We propose that education, and specifically higher education, has the potential to shape and connect the lives, cultures and endowments of people around the country and the world. To do this, however, would call for us to radically re-think the nature of our universities. Just how radical can we permit our vision to be? Are the traditional institutions equipped to create the new reality that is desired or do we require much more dynamic thinking? How do we translate the new vision to reality?
