The 13th Annual General Meeting 2017

RUFORUM AGM Background

The AGM is the supreme decision making organ of the RUFORUM Network; it oversees Network interventions and performs functions as deemed relevant for the achievement of RUFORUM objectives. Since 2005 when the first RUFORUM AGM was held, the AGM has evolved into a valuable convening event that provides a platform for RUFORUM members and Governance Organs (the Board and its committees- the International Advisory Panel; the Technical Committee and the Committee of Principals and Deans). Recognizing that the adoption and institutionalization of a number of RUFORUM initiatives vary across African Universities due to variation in capacities, RUFORUM offers a platform for African universities to share and learn from each other for capacity development for the continent. Thus, the AGM also provides a forum for RUFORUM member universities to share and learn from non-member universities as well as key stakeholders in higher education and agricultural development who are normally invited to attend as observers or partners. Within this framework, the AGM has served as a springboard for leveraging resources and has fostered many mutually beneficial partnerships between and among universities in and outside the Network.
