University Education for Youth Empowerment: Policy/ Management Issues and Strategies for Improvement

EP Ndidi


Policy and management issues that inhibit quality university education for
youth empowerment in Nigeria were discussed in this paper. These issues
include access, gender disparity in enrolment, high enrolment growth, staff
quality and quantity, funding, cultism and poor quality of infrastructure.
Unless these issues are addressed, the extent to which university education could enhance youth empowerment would remain limited. Relevant policy and management strategies for improvement were suggested.
