The University of Ngaoundere, located in the Adamaoua region, unveiled its strategic development plan for the period 2021-2025, on August 28, 2020, in Yaoundé. Its “implementation should enable our university to be more proactive and actively shape its future,” said the rector, Uphie Chinje Melo.
According to her, the current university context, marked by profound reforms, including the entry into force of the bachelor's master's doctorate system, requires more than ever universities to redefine their guiding project.
“The development of a strategic plan is also important because sharing the same values and working with common objectives is fundamental for the development of a corporate culture in which the entire university community of Ngaoundéré could recognize itself. The strategy would also facilitate university cohesion and an atmosphere conducive to study,” the rector said.
The Minister of Higher Education, Jacques Fame Ndongo, recalling that universities, to be competitive and efficient, must be empowered, invited the partners of the University of Ngaoundéré to support the implementation of this plan.
The plan is divided into five areas. The first is based on the modernization of administrative and financial governance. The second is to improve the internal efficiency, quality, and relevance of training to make it more attractive. The University of Ngaoundéré will therefore be able to boost research within the framework of the 3rd axis. And by making the diversification of funding sources a priority, the institution should improve the living conditions of its 30,000 students.
