Scaling impact through hubs and across Africa

Over the next 10 years, the Education Collaborative will continue to build out the regional clusters of exemplar institutions, while working together with them to create the needed transformation, collaborations, and partnerships with key stakeholders in higher education.

The Education Collaborative is a network of higher education institutions that are uncompromising in achieving excellence in teaching and learning, research, innovation, and quality student outcomes in Africa.

Through an affiliation of institutions across Sub-Saharan Africa, 

we will transform over 1.1million students to be ethical, entrepreneurial leaders who create jobs, transform industries and lead economies, by 2030.
