Haramaya University, supervised by the Ministry of Education
The FDRE Ministry of Education Supervision and Support Team conducted supervision and field observation at Haramaya University.
During the four-day stay (November 2–5, 2023), the supervision team discussed with the university’s top and middle management, academic and administrative staff, as well as with the students. The discussion was about the strengths and weaknesses of the university’s teaching, research, and community service-related activities. After the discussion, the supervision team has provided feedback to the university’s top management regarding the ideas raised in each of the forums and the field observations.
Haramaya University, which is one of the universities that will soon make the transition to autonomy among the higher education institutions of the country, needs to strengthen its strong effort. The university is expected to do so in order to achieve the given mission as well as solve the problems that need to be solved in the short, medium, and long terms, according to the team.
Mr. Solomon Teshome, who is an expert in the organization and management of institutions in the Ministry of Education, said that Haramaya University is a classic institution with great resources and that it is making enormous achievements in the assigned missions. Mr. Solomon also said that if it is measured according to the structural criteria of becoming an autonomous university, the university will come out with a better image than other similar universities.
Appreciating the supervision and support team for their unreserved support, Dr. Yishak Yusuf, delegated President of Haramaya University, promised that they will take fast corrective measures as much as possible for the raised limitations and requested the Ministry of Education to help them solve the hindrances that are beyond the university’s capability so that the university can achieve its mission successfully.
