Governance, Quality Culture and Future Directions - A Malawi Perspective

by Ignasio Malizani Jimu

This book is empirically grounded on Ignasio Malizani Jimu's firsthand experience of governance and quality control in Malawi higher education. Informed by the liberalisation of higher education and the quality turn in Africa, this book reflects on higher education policy, how higher education institutions manage their core business processes, the dynamic character of their stakeholdership and governance and management arrangements that are involved. Its primary purpose is to contribute to the discourse on increasing access to, regulation of and more importantly the pursuit of quality culture in higher education. Key questions, insights and directions have been packaged in eight chapters, some of which are: the purpose and inclusion in higher education, stakeholdership, context and quality culture in private higher education institutions, peer reviews as quality control mechanism, quality rating of institutions and setting and operating quality assurance units. It is intended for higher education managers, policy makers and students of higher education management.

"In this must-read book, Dr. Jimu raises critical questions about governance and quality in higher education. He meticulously demonstrates what quality is and how it can be achieved in Malawi where conflicting interests, dishonesty, and shortage of resources blemish the integrity of higher education institutions."
