Adam Habib, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa.

A Professor of Political Science, Habib has over 30 years of academic, research and administration expertise, spanning five universities and multiple local and international institutions, boards and task teams. His professional involvement in institutions has always been defined by three distinct engagements: the contest of ideas, their translation into actionable initiatives, and the building of institutions.

He has been working with government, students and other stakeholders to find solutions to the recent wave of protests around funding for higher education. He has also focused on building African research excellence, and together with the University of Cape Town, Wits initiated the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA).

Join us on August 27 at 2PM in International Center room 201! This is a special event put on by the Alliance for African Partnership.
