USAID Identifies Lack of Strategic Planning in Pakistan’s Higher Education Sector

The process of developing a strategic plan goes beyond the scope of a single administrator; it necessitates effective coordination both vertically and horizontally among internal and external stakeholders. This coordination involves consolidating various micro-plans, including academic, research, financial, student services, and sustainability plans. The USAID has highlighted a deficiency in Pakistan’s higher education sector, stating that there is currently no structured practice for creating and implementing long-term plans to enhance the institutional performance and governance of public sector universities.

To address this gap, the USAID’s Higher Education System Strengthening Activity (HESSA), implemented by the University of Utah, has enlisted the support of the Society of College and University Planning (SCUP). The goal is to assist 16 partner public sector universities in building their capacity for strategic planning. SCUP, a U.S.-based organization for higher education planners, facilitates the exchange of resources, best practices, and innovative ideas to address challenges and move towards integrated planning.
