The Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) wishes to announce a call for applicants to participate in the 2017/2018 staff mobility programme in the EAC Partner States for member universities.
IUCEA is an institution of the East African Community (EAC) whose mission is to promote the strategic and sustainable development of Higher Education systems and research in support of East Africa’s Socio-economic development and regional integration. Section 6 (i) of the IUCEA Act, 2009, stipulates that the council shall “encourage the exchange of students and staff between member universities”. This is one of the main functions of IUCEA. The Staff Mobility Programme’s objective is to encourage the sharing of academic human resources, exchange of knowledge, skills and experiences and hence contribute to the EAC regional integration while at the same time helping address capacity gaps in member universities. Participants in the exchange programme are expected to offer their services in teaching, research, external examination, and community engagement.
