In an era powered by technology and globalization, higher education transcends national and continental boundaries.
   
Tertiary education are designed to respond to international challenges, and instruction is conducted to suit the global market.

These realities call for a multi-dimensional and intercontinental conversation on tertiary education from time to time. 

For this reason, the CULTIVA International Education Solutions, in collaboration with the African Union (AU), will hold the first African Union Higher Education Summit at the Marriott Hotel, near the Washington-Dulles Airport, United States from March 13 to 15, 2019. 

The summit is expected to generate an avalanche of strategies to infuse global best practices on which higher learning institutions rely for effective scholarship. 

It is also designed to improve the visibility of the AU and to provide a platform for positive interactions among African and American universities, colleges, and other institutions of higher learning.

The summit aims at providing a platform for formulating and implementing strategic interventions that will chart growth initiatives and open future avenues for a strong and sustainable partnership.

Sheila Schultz, Director of Marketing, CULTIVA International Education Solutions said, the summit will also delve into the reliance and sustainability of these interventions through institutionalization within the AU organization and corporate culture.

Sheila Schultz Said the project builds upon previous projects of similar nature and global partnerships that have been formulated by CULTIVA and  is part of continental initiatives of the AU to revitalize and strengthen higher education and research in Africa.

“The thematic areas of discussion will include Joint Research Opportunities, Going Green, Advanced Academic Opportunities, and Building Productive Partnerships in the African and American academic fraternity. 

“Other areas includes Addressing Public Health Needs, Sensitivity to Cultural Needs, and International Accreditation of programs to elevate the African continent to another level of scholarly excellence”. 

An educationist, Dr. Mohammed Marzuq Abubakar and a Lecturer at the University of Applied Management, Ghana describes the summit as a tool  to improve teaching, learning, and research at the tertiary level on the African continent. 

He calls on academic institutions, education trust funds, civil society organizations, and individuals interested in the intellectual development of the youth to attend.
