It is imperative that leaders in higher education have a global perspective beyond their national borders and building networks and communities of leaders is one of numerous ways to achieve this.

‘’We need to engender in our leadership, a global perspective and discover that we have a lot more in common with our global peers, than we have differences,” says Dr Oliver Seale, Director of the Higher Education Leadership and Management (HELM) programme at Universities South Africa (USAf).

Dr Seale (above) was in conversation with Professor Dolores Guerrero – President of the Council of Colleges of Arts and Sciences (CCAS) and Dean at the Texas A&M University at Kingsville in the United States. This was at the HELM Summit, held from 15-17 November 2022, whose aim was to explore developing leadership for sustainability and change in higher education in South Africa, on the African continent and globally.
