Universities in Africa--The Need for Adaptation, Transformation, Reformation and Revitalization.
Amonoo-Neizer, Eugene H.
Higher Education Policy, v11 n4 p301-09 Dec 1998

Despite their substantial accomplishments, African universities must evolve from their European heritage and re-form themselves for greater contemporary relevance. (Author/MSE)
