WISCAPE's Radomski speaks with African leaders visiting UW

July 19, 2016

Noel Radomski, managing director of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE), delivered a presentation to 25 young African leaders visiting UW-Madison for ​a six week academic and leadership institute as part of the Mandela Washington Fellowship program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and hosted here by the African Studies Program.

The fellows represent a variety of fields, including medicine, public health, law, education and community activism.

Radomski spoke to the fellows about the history, evolution, and contemporary issues in higher education. ​He also engaged in conversation with ​them about challenges and opportunities in African countries. 

“We exchanged ideas on how to improve relationships between African colleges and universities with their K-12 systems, health care and mental health systems, and governments,” ​said Radomski. “ I believe I learned more from them and gained a greater appreciation for tertiary education in Africa.”
