The Staff Exchange Programme is a strategic intervention for enhancing sharing of
human resources among universities in the region, and for the promotion of regional
integration. Facilitation of staff exchange has continued to be one of the main
activities of IUCEA since the institution was established in 1970.
The Programme aims at strengthening inter-university cooperation through
academic mobility and enhancing quality of teaching and research in university
institutions in East Africa. It provides university institutions with experts in fields
of study that may be lacking in the host university as well as availing opportunity
to visiting lecturers to gain experience from the hosting institutions, and hence
enhancing their career development.
