Internationalization at Ethiopian Universities Is Strengthened by U.S. Scholar Assistance

From the 1950s, when President Truman’s Point Four program established Jimma and Haramaya agricultural colleges, Ethiopia’s higher education system has benefited greatly from American assistance.  Since then, a large number of American colleges have collaborated with Ethiopian public universities and the Ministry of Education with a tenacity and intensity that is uncommon in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Universities in the United States and Ethiopia are working together to raise the quality of instruction in several subjects, including public health, business, agriculture, and peacebuilding.

The U.S. Embassy and the Ministry of Education co-hosted a workshop in Addis Ababa on January 16 and 17 to support public universities in strengthening their international engagements, particularly with U.S. universities, in the spirit of the Point Four program and the 120th anniversary of U.S.-Ethiopian relations.  The session was attended by the vice presidents and directors of foreign affairs from the first 10 institutions to transition to autonomy as well as five additional universities that are actively seeking internationalisation.  Dr. Erich Dietrich, vice provost of New York University Abu Dhabi and a specialist in equal access to higher education and internationalization of higher education, oversaw the program.

Dr. Dietrich is now in Ethiopia on a Fulbright Specialist exchange funded by the US Department of State.  Dietrich’s program in Ethiopia includes working with the internationalization team of the Ministry of Education to improve their internationalization guidelines, policies, and frameworks; Addis Ababa University, which has made internationalization a top priority in its transition to autonomy; and Arba Minch University, which is setting up an international relations office as a model that other mid-sized Ethiopian public universities can follow.

The United States government is dedicated to continuing to be a vital partner of the Ministry and Ethiopia’s public universities as it advances with the country’s transition from public institutions to autonomous administration.
