Reforming a National System of Higher Education, The Case of Cameroon

The higher education system of Cameroon experienced a series of reforms from the 1960's to the 1990's. The most recent reform, introduced in 1993, was designed to provide quality education at a more manageable scale. Six geographically dispersed universities were created to replace one large university (the University of Yaounde). This involved several important adjustments in the areas of accessibility, quality education, and capacity-building, and introduced new challenges such as developing information technology and experimenting with distance learning.By presenting the successes and drawbacks in implementing the reforms, as well as relevant statistical information, this report provides a succinct account of the process and impact of the reforms on the higher education system in Cameroon., eng
