Association of African Universities

The Association of African Universities (AAU) is a pan-African organization that was founded in 1967 and is located in Accra. The AAU promotes cooperation between universities in Africa and between African universities and the international academic community. AAU is the apex organization and forum for consultation, exchange of information and co-operation among institutions of higher education in Africa. It represents the voice of higher education in Africa on regional and international bodies and supports networking by institutions of higher education in teaching, research, information exchange and dissemination. More than 100 universities belong to the AAU. The AAU Web site has a list of its member universities, with email addresses and URLs, where available. A list of AAU monographs will be found on the site and information on ordering them, although the monographs are not available electronically. In addition the AAU maintains a research program on higher education management, which is described on the site; there is also a list of researchers, papers, and the full text of some of the research papers written for the program.
