South African Institute for Advancement

Woodstock, Cape Town, South Africa



From 2006 to 2010, the institute, known as Inyathelo, managed the original $10.5 million Kresge Special Initiative in South Africa, which focused on building private advancement capacity at five large teaching institutions. This grant funds the planning, grantee selection and initial implementation of a second round of the program, the Kresge-Inyathelo Advanced Initiative, which will promote university advancement through training, consulting, structural reforms, better data management, an annual conference and bonus grants at four South African universities.
