Estimates for 1993, based on population survey of 1984 (in LOPEZ-ESCARTIN, 1992).


  • Motivations:

  • Kivu: among the most densely populated provinces, but also one of the worst situations in education

  • Difficult access to existing universities (Kinshasa, Lubumbashi, Kisangani)

  • Challenges

  • Increasing student population: presently about 3000

  • - Few and overloaded academic staff

  • - Lack of experience in research

  • No financial support from the State

  • Many years of instability (wars)

LESSONS LEARNED

&

POINTS NEEDING ATTENTION


  • LESSONS LEARNED

  • Slow appropriation of program

  • at beginning the program was perceived as special structure not owned by the university

  • Initial inertia in reporting and submitting supporting documents & Persisting need for a push to meet the deadlines for submissions

  • Results

  • Measurable outputs becoming evident

  • Training of Masters and PhDs on good way.

  • But dispersion and needed collaboration between projects


  • POINTS NEEDING ATTENTION

  • To increase visibility of UCB as center of expertise in post-conflict issues :

  • Publications: scientific paper on post-conflict issues

  • Meetings/conferences:international/regional/local; multidisciplinary.

  • Training programs:

  • Setting up of a training program on Peace.

  • Work with «Institut de Paix pour la région des GrandsLacs » in planning

  • Lifelong postacademic training of public administration staff (supported by the World Bank)

  • Communication strategy: to be improved, e.g. via web site.


  • POINTS NEEDING ATTENTION

  • To increase impact of program on institution

  • Improving ICT:

  • New Project: mainly for training of ICT personnel (equipments largely supplied via UniveriTic)

  • Direct effect: improved data processing and communications

  • Indirect effects: improved English learning (language laboratory; online learning/TOEFEL examination); improved international Cooperation
