CODESRIA Higher Education Policy Initiative (HEPI): Call for Proposals
Deadline: September 15
The overall outcome envisaged from the HEPI initiative relates to contributing to the emergence of a critical mass of internal and external stakeholders within the higher education sector who can continuously secure the management capacities, autonomy and resources the institutions need to deliver on their academic missions. As a component of this initiative, CODESRIA invites proposals from academics in African universities and media personnel working in the area of higher education to undertake profiles of higher education leaders within the continent.

This annual conference will bring together regional college faculty with the aim of increasing research on and teaching of the European Union at universities and four-year and two-year colleges in Illinois and the Midwest.

The conference will include panel discussions in which participants can present their research on the EU, as well as sessions on effective teaching of EU-related subjects.
Presentations on any topic relevant to EU studies are welcome.
Colleagues with only a nascent academic interest in the EU are invited to join us without being obliged to present any materials.
Graduate students are welcome. We can also consider participation by graduate students. Pending availability, travel support may be possible for graduate students whose abstracts are accepted for presentation.
