HERANA Forum: Makerere University

An important HERANA III activity is to hold Institutional Forums with university leadership. The purpose of the Forums is to discuss progress regarding the institutionalisation of data collection at the HERANA universities. This includes the analysis of the data collected to contribute to evidence-based strategic planning and strengthening knowledge production at this group of emerging research-intensive flagship universities. Three Forums were held in June and July 2016 at the University of Ghana, Makerere University and the University of Mauritius.

"Makerere University has been part of the HERANA project since 2008. Several developments have emerged from this network. These have ranged from the perspective of exploring the academic core, community engagement to knowledge production and university as an engine for development. HERANA has further articulated how Makerere University, the flagship university in Uganda, defines itself in terms of mission and vision; and how these compare with other flagships on the African continent. As Makerere University, our strategy is to move towards a research-led university. The HERANA programme explores parameters that point to how research-led universities can and/or should function."
Prof. John Dddumba-Ssentamu, Vice-Chancelor, Makerere University
