Africa Higher Education Research Institute (AHERI)
Human resource development is a key component to the development of any society and higher education is vital to the process. In most developing countries ,Kenya specifically, research in higher education is limited, which leads to making development policy decisions based on inadequate scientific information.
The Africa Higher Education Research Institute, (AHERI) aims to promote and engage in research of the higher education sector to make it more relevant to the countries' development agenda. It aims to do this by encouraging more researchers to focus on higher education as a field of study, implement projects that will generate necessary data to assist in effective decision making, and advocate for changes that would lead to growth and development of higher education institutes and the country as a whole.
