A reflection and training workshop held in Accra (Ghana) brought together African university presidents, vice-chancellors, rectors, and top-level administrators to discuss three themes: first, the nature and functions of higher education institutions; second, leadership and organization of the higher education institution; and, third, resource planning/allocation and cost effectiveness. This proceedings document summarizes the presentations made and the discussion that took place in these three theme areas. A summary of the participants' views and recommendations is presented, focusing on the mission of the African university, internal policy, operational strategies, interuniversity cooperation, management techniques, and financial policy. Appendixes contain: (1) the Legon statement on the future mission of the African universities; (2) texts of two opening addresses; (3) a summary of background documents prepared for discussion; (4) a list of participants; and (5) a list of working documents.
