About CLIG

At CLIG, we seek to develop current and emerging innovative and transformative leaders. We have in the last five years held training programmes for university leaders where we have trained Chairmen of Councils, VCs, DVCs. This has had a huge impact on the sustainability and development of the participating universities. As we continue to focus on university leadership, there are other emerging sectors that need capacity building for leaders. CLIG, in collaboration with the University of Iowa, has identified the health sector as a priority area for training. In this regard, we are planning to hold our first Health Leaders’ Training Workshop in April 2024 in Iowa, USA, using the university leaders’ training model.
