Second Supra-Regional Conference in Beirut

Thursday, March 14, 2013 to Friday, March 15, 2013
Beirut Arab University


The second Supra-regional conference in governance with UNAM took place at the Beirut Arab University on 14th and 15th March. Governance experience of project partners was aimed to be exposed at the conference, generating interchangeable learning and networking, leading to potential institutional collaboration. As such, the conference gathered deans, director of programmes, financial managers, HR managers, academic members, from HEIs and other higher education stakeholders.

The increasing concerns on this topic attracted the attention from the Ministry of Education in Lebanon, four other local HEIs and one from the UK, who are not UNAM consortium. Their involvement delighted and brought extra value to the conference.

Speakers and participants shared their insights and experience in the following themes:

  • Governance in HEIs
  • Transparency in HEIs
  • Operating models of HEIs
  • Financing HEIs
  • Autonomy in HEIs
  • Fundraising in HEIs
  • Quality Assurance in HEIs
