Engineering Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in University Education Service Delivery in Africa
Odeleye, Donald A.
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v8 n2 p21-30 Fall 2012
University education remains a major player in the socio-economic revamping of Africa even though most African national governments have not leveraged the high output of the private sector for educational development. For the most part to date, private universities are running as parallels to their public counterparts. With fewer infrastructures, the private schools seem to be thriving much more than their industrial-action infested publicly-funded schools. It is on record that private schools seem more proficient and effective in service delivery than their public counterparts. It is high time that African national governments began to partner the private sector in evolving cutting-edge service delivery in tertiary education. Specific PPP (3Ps) approaches such as privatization of selected public institutions, private sector endowments and partnership of property developers among others are suggested. It is also proposed that synergy could be encouraged between public and private universities in linkage programs and sabbatical appointments.
