The Association of Commonwealth Universities

About the Association of Commonwealth Universities
 

The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is the world's first and oldest international university network, established in 1913. The ACU has over 500 member institutions in developed and developing countries across the Commonwealth. Drawing on the collective experience and expertise of our membership, the ACU seeks to address issues in international higher education through a range of projects, networks, and events. The ACU administers scholarships, provides academic research and leadership on issues in the sector, and promotes inter-university cooperation and the sharing of good practice – helping universities serve their communities, now and into the future.

Patrice Ajai-Ajagbe, Programme Officer, The Association of Commonwealth Universities

 

Patrice coordinates the ACU’s Research Management activities – which facilitate the sharing of good practice between universities, and encourage better communication between universities and funding bodies in this area.  This includes providing support for universities (and related professional associations), with little or no tradition of research management, to develop their capacity.
