ACE for Impact Centres and COVID-19

 Activities in many African higher education institutions (HEIs) were suspended by their governments in order to contain the spread of the virus. Many of these institutions are host universities of the Africa Centres of Excellence for Development Impact Project (ACE Impact) and as a result, activities of these Centres were affected. However, it is pleasing to note that the ACEs have initiated measures to support the containment and management of the virus in all 11 participating countries within the West African sub region.

This page has been created for two reasons:

  1. To profile the contributions by the ACE Impact Centers and partners in responding to the COVID-19 particularly focusing on three main areas namely, Innovations in teaching and learning, Innovations in research and community service.
  2. To share relevant resources for use by the African Higher Education community in order to cope with COVID-19 lockdowns and related disruptions
