The Zaforum is promoted as an advocacy body concerned with challenges and opportunities in the landscape of higher education in South Africa. The leaders include representatives from all stakeholders of higher education and industry. The sole objective of the forum is to participate in building future universities in South Africa that would offer a world-class education. This encompasses the creation of appropriate structure, strategies, processes and technology. The higher education system plays a very crucial role in the development of a nation in view of its forward linkage with the corporate, as well as, society at large. It is a human capital-intensive sector where people and knowledge mean everything. It is an inevitable fact that a robust, innovative and ebullient higher educational system can only help in the transformation of South Africa among the league of developed nations.
