Educational Advancement training in Africa (funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York)
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education has received a two-year grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to provide resources and training in fundraising and alumni development to 20 universities across Africa.
As part of the grant, CASE will provide online training courses, in-person conferences and various tools and resources for vice chancellors, deans and professionals who work in fundraising and alumni relations at the 20 universities. The training will be tailored to meet the varying advancement needs of these institutions. The online training and in-person conferences will be available for a fee to advancement professionals at any African university.
Since 2003, CASE has received about $1.5 million from the Carnegie Corporation, including this latest grant, as part of an initiative by the corporation to strengthen higher education in Africa. Specifically, the Carnegie Corporation has worked with CASE and other organizations to help universities build an infrastructure for raising funds to cope with increasing costs and declining government support.
Online advancement training available from October 2012 - this comprehensive programme involves 24 online training seminars taking place over the next 24 months. Forthcoming sessions include:
Our 2013 Educational Advancement in Africa Conference will take place in Accra, Ghana from 29 - 31 October. CASE will join with our local partner university, the University of Ghana, to deliver a comprehensive three day programme of training for advancement practitioners, managers and institutional leaders. The conference programme and faculty information will be announced shortly. Registration will open on June 1st.
