2019 Nigeria Higher Education Forum

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 2019 Nigeria Higher Education Forum!

The forum will focus on “Building the Capacity in Nigeria through the Career Development of Young Faculty”. In collaboration with CAReH Africa, the forum will bring thought-leaders from various disciplines across the US and Vice Chancellors of NHEF-affiliated universities together to engage in an in-depth discussion on the role of academics in Africa, and their responsibility in strengthening and sustaining African economies.

This year’s forum, we will take a deeper dive into developing action-oriented next steps to build the capacity of early career academics within STEM fields in Nigeria, its subsequent positive impact on the Nigerian economy, and improvement of the African landscape.

We are delighted to host distinguished panelists and speakers with insights on opportunities to increase the potential of junior academics in Africa. Through our forum we aim to catalyze the understanding and development of academia in Africa and its impact in improving African economies. We look forward to your attendance and the opportunity to collectively enhance the capacity of junior academics in STEM fields in Nigeria.
