The Committee of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (CVCNU) have organised a five-day leadership course for women in academics.
The five-day leadership course scheduled to hold in Istanbul, Turkey is to build the capacity of women in academics and higher education leadership.
The Secretary General of the Committee of Vice Chancellors, Prof. Yakubu Ochefu said the programme organised by the WIN Institute for Gender Studies WIGs, Nigeria in collaboration with her Turkey based learning partner is a Fellowship Induction for spouses of Vice Chancellors in Africa as well as women in academics and higher education on the continent.
Prof. Ochefu said the programme is not specifically targeted at wives of vice chancellors of Nigerian Universities but creates opportunity of engagement and capacity building for all the women in academic leadership positions in Nigerian and across the African continent.
He noted that the invitation for the programme, scheduled to hold between July 18 and July 23, to the spouses of Vice Chancellors of Universities in Nigeria was not peculiar to them as speculated in some quarters.
