The research focus of this project is the transformation of higher education in South Africa to meet the challenges of poverty reduction, economic development and social transformation in the 21st century. Specifically, the lens of professionalism and professional education in universities has been identified as a measure for evaluating the barriers, bridges, negotiations and interpretations of pro-poor transformations.
The project aims are to:
Three leading South African universities, each of which has a different historical genesis, are the case study sites. One professional site in each university was chosen and documentary, statistical, survey and interview data collected.
A research working group at each university advises on the generation and refinement of metrics constituted by pro-poor dimensions and specific indicators to evaluate University transformation and professional education in relation to the MDGs and poverty reduction.
