    A Canada-Africa Venture in University Building

    Edited by Michael J. Larsen and James H. Morrison     January 2006

    Education is the only self-generating energy source ever discovered by human beings, and higher education has proven to be the most effective and efficient route to our social, cultural and economic growth and well-being. Tragically, the poorer nations of the developing world must send many of their most promising students abroad for higher education only to lose them to the brighter prospects of the developed world. This was a dilemma known all too well to the people of The Gambia, West Africa. Partners for Progress: A Canada-Africa Venture in University Building is the inspiring and instructive story of a partnership for progress between Saint Mary’s University in Canada and the government of The Gambia. This collaboration led to the foundation of The Gambia’s first university, enabling it to provide vastly enhanced opportunities for higher learning and research to its citizens.
