The Pan African University (PAU) is a continental academic and research institution established by the African Union and partners, founded on the guiding principles of academic freedom, autonomy, accountability; quality assurance for strengthening existing African institutions at graduate and post-graduate levels. The PAU is intended to serve the whole continent, striving to achieve excellence and international partnerships in academic and research activities; gender parity and equality in all its university functions. The PAU also aims at promotion of African integration through the mobility of students, academic and administrative staff, collaborative research linked to the challenges faced by African countries. The PAU is considered to have an appropriate framework to enable the African Diaspora to contribute towards the development of higher education and research in Africa; promotion of inter-disciplinary and multidisciplinary research programs linked to policy making processes. To enable it to function in today’s technology influenced economies, the PAU will promote productive linkages with the industrial sector for innovation and dissemination of new knowledge, make full use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for pedagogy, research and management.
