2nd Edition – AAU/AVCNU University Advancement Workshop

SPECIAL INVITATION TO AAU: UNIVERSITY ADVANCEMENT WORKSHOP “THE ROLE OF THE
REGISTRAR, CFO AND CHR IN 21ST CENTURY UNIVERSITY”
It is my great pleasure to formally invite you to attend the upcoming workshop on the theme:
“University Advancement – “The Role of the Registrar, CFO and CHR in 21st Century
University” from the 26th
– 28th September, 2018.
The Africa University of the 21st century faces many challenges – challenges of relevance, sustainability,
student access, student success as well as, very important so, a myriad of staff challenges.
The call is therefore for a new type of Professional and Support Service staff (PASS), senior and
executive staff who fully understand the imperatives of the 21st century and who are able to translate
the institutional goals of the Higher Education Institution into aligned Registry, Human Resources as well
as Financial Objectives, policies and procedures as well as actions to support the sustainable success of
the particular HEI.
PASS environments that are not fully aligned with and able to support the VC and other academic
leaders in the HEI, can seriously impede the HEI in it’s strive to fulfill the desired vision of the particular
institution.
This is the reason why the AAU, in response to the needs as articulated by its member universities, have
decided to focus during the next workshop on the key roles that need to be fulfilled by the Registrar and
Heads of respectively Finance and Human Resources.
The offering of this workshop at this particular point in time is very appropriate. All Africa
HEI’s, albeit to a varying degree, are subject to unprecedented external pressures – having
significant impacts on both the expectations of PASS environments as well as the value adding
services that need to be provided by these important PASS
Do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity.
Looking forward to our discussions.
Yours faithfully
Prof. Etienne Ehile
Secretary General
