Description

Getting Our Universities Back on Track is a broad narrative on the state of higher education in Nigeria, undertaken within the context of the author’s experience as Vice Chancellor at Adekunle Ajasin University (AAUA), a pub­lic university in the country, from 2010 to 2015. The process by which the author negotiated the challenges presented by AAUA in those years are care­fully unveiled in a manner that speaks to the emergence of new paradigms for university governance, predicated upon an untrammelled commitment to meritocracy. It is a narrative on the success story of modernization of a public university operating in a particularly difficult policy and politics terrain. It equates a practice manual for university governance in Nigeria, and arguably beyond.
