The Education Collaborative June Convening is the central platform for all stakeholders in African higher-ed to share innovative resources and strategies for the sector’s advancement. Held annually in June at Ashesi University, the week-long event harnesses the collective expertise of institutions and educators on ways to create educational systems that support the development agenda of the continent.
