The Education Collaborative at Ashesi

 “We want to reach people who care about influencing the impact of higher education through the systems and practices used by their institutions, right from their lecture halls to their offices. We will showcase successful teaching experiences that have worked at Ashesi and other partner institutions, with the hope that by beginning the conversation, we will co-design replicable models for greater output in higher education.” - Rose Dodd, Faculty Lead 


In 2002, Ashesi University College was founded to achieve an African Renaissance driven by a new generation of ethical entrepreneurial leaders. Our unique model has resulted in extraordinary alumni and has brought Ashesi overwhelming attention from institutions across the continent and beyond. With a vision of an African renaissance, we are leading the creation of a collaborative platform to facilitate the sharing of best practices in university teaching, management, and administration among institutions in Africa.

The Education Collaborative at Ashesi, will bring together a network of higher education institutions and individuals committed to addressing Africa’s biggest challenges in education. Our first workshop will run from June 4th to 9th 2017, and will include an immersive set of activities focused on building a student-centered campus. The six-day workshop will be held at the Ashesi’s campus in Berekuso, and will cost a $1,000 per participant.*

Accommodation will be provided at the Lansdown Resort, close to the university’s campus. Participants will closely interact with, and experience first-hand, the combined liberal arts and sciences approach to institution building, and get to explore ways to develop tools for similar approaches in their home institutions. All workshop resources, meals and transportation will be provided.
