APLU's Knowledge Center for Advancing Development through Higher Education contributes to development through a focus on higher education institutions and systems.
The Knowledge Center recently completed two projects funded by USAID. The first is a report on African higher education, identifying challenges and opportunities and providing recommendations for future investment.
The second major report of the Knowledge Center was on good practices in leveraging long-term training for institutional capacity strengthening. This report was in part based on the outcomes of a webinar series focused on good practices that brought together training program implementers from around the world for in-depth discussions on specific topics.
