Higher Education Strategic Planning in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Case Study of Cameroon.
Ngwana, Terfot Augustine
This paper argues that a framework for strategic planning in universities in Sub-Saharan Africa can be developed with the background of global, regional, and institutional realities. Using the specific case of the University of Buea in Cameroon, the paper attempts to expose the global trends of polarization in knowledge production capacity as an input to the process of strategic planning in institutions. It uses the national policy background to highlight the context and inherent role of the central government in the process of institutional strategic planning. Research reported was based on data derived from in-depth, semi-structured interviews with a sample of faculty members at the University of Buea and documentary evidence. Buea was chosen as a showcase on strategic planning because it was the only university of six state universities that developed a 5-year strategic plan after the 1993 reforms.
