Kampala 16 July 2020 Many policies to widen access to University Education in Africa have been put in place by several Governments. As a result, there has been an increase in demand for Universities to demonstrate the value for money invested in Higher Education. In Africa, many Universities are consistently doing their best to visibly show their relevance in teaching, research and Community engagement. However, the controversies surrounding University rankings have always existed, and yet it has still remained the common means of informing the public about the status of universities in research and teaching.
The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) strives to build capacity of its member universities to deliver quality education through training, research, Innovation and academic mobility to enable them rank higher globally. According to the recently released 2020 uniRank Universities Rankings, Twenty four (24) RUFORUM member Universities were ranked among the top 100 Universities in Africa.
