LEADHER - Previous competitions
Striving to increase its direct support to members in developing countries but in ways that engage the whole membership, IAU launched the Leadership Development for Higher Education Reform (LEADHER) Programme in May 2007.
Since its pilot phase, several competitions have been organized; grants provided thanks to Sida and IAU funding have acted as catalysts for the development of unusual and interesting partnerships, involving South-South or North-South collaboration with more than 45 IAU Member Institutions benefiting from LEADHER.
Following the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, IAU held a special edition of the LEADHER programme focusing exclusively on contributing to the rebuilding effort of Haiti’s higher education sector. The Association hoped to respond to the needs of the Haitian higher education stakeholders, in modest but concrete ways. The grants allocated in that competition enabled a few IAU Members to create and carry out collaborative and/or planning projects which hopefully laid the groundwork for future, longer term partnerships for reconstruction. Each involved at least one HEI located in Haiti.
