COREVIP 2007 will discuss "The African Brain Drain – Managing the Drain: Working with the Diaspora"

A particular aim of the Conference will be to help members of the Association of African Universities to identify and develop specific, concrete activities that they can undertake to reduce the negative aspects of the “brain drain”, while taking full advantage of the pool of African talent worldwide.

The Conference of Rectors, Vice-chancellors and Presidents (COREVIP) is organized every two years by the Association of African Universities. It serves primarily as a platform for the chief executive officers of AAU member institutions, but also for a wide range of stakeholders to examine topical themes and priorities for the development of higher education on the continent. It also acts as a mid-term conference for taking stock of the implementation of the decisions of the Association’s General Conference.

Previous COREVIP themes have been: Revitalising Universities in Africa: Strategy for the 21st Century (1999), African Higher Education Management and Leadership in the information Age (2001), The Role of African Higher Education in the Building of the African Union (2003) and Networking of African Higher Education Institutions for the Renewal of the African University (2005).
