West Africa Hub Convening


While the Education Collaborative June Convening brings together stakeholders across Africa, the West Africa Hub convening offers a dedicated platform for institutions and educators from the region. Held annually at a chosen location within the region, this focused event harnesses the collective expertise of West African institutions to address challenges and opportunities specific to the sub-region. Participants collaborate on innovative solutions to drive West African higher education towards excellence and contribute to the broader development agenda of the continent.
