Government-to-University Steering Committee

Government-to-University Network logo

The Government-to-University initiative is governed by a steering committee comprised of members from local universities and government leaders in the region. Multiple academic disciplines and government sectors are engaged to ensure diverse representation. Members are committed to successful implementation of the G2U initiative and sufficiently senior in their respective institutions to make meaningful commitments and decisions in real time. The steering committee is co-chaired by one representative from government and one representative from higher education.
