Over the past decade African higher education institutions, universities in particular, have been keen to mainstream gender into their core functions of teaching and research, as well as administration.
- Academic leaders, managers, staff and students familiarized and educated on the basic facts and concepts about gender so that they can understand issues of gender concern in institutions of higher education. This can be measured through the inclusion of gender issues into course outlines, teaching and research.
- Academic leaders, managers and students sensitized to the basic gender dynamics inherent in teaching and learning processes as measured in their course content and teaching methods.
- Basic gender concepts imparted to students and staff who are involved in developing and managing interventions that will enhance gender equity and justice in institutions of higher education. Indicators for measuring how far gender equity and justice have been incorporated into the institution developed and utilized.
- Students’ and staff’s ability to recognize and incorporate gender issues into their personal and professional lives enhanced beyond the institutions of higher education into the private, NGO and other sectors. Better linkages will be established between the academic institution and its surrounding institutions.
