The University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) is proud to announce an opportunity to take a delegation to South Africa, March 8-14, 2020. This delegation will be developed in cooperation with one-on-one interactions and roundtable discussions with South African university and school administrators, meet with the Council for Higher Education for a high-level overview of issues facing your counterparts, discuss issues with teachers and students, compare a city school to one in Soweto, once South Africa’s biggest black township under the Apartheid system, and meet with a grassroots after-school organization, based in Johannesburg.

Be sure to enroll before December 12 to take part in this exciting opportunity.

  • Training and education standards in educational administration
  • Current government educational policies and challenges
  • Changes taking place in higher education and the associated challenges
