Prof Enala Mwase says the institution has maintained its world ranking of 3,395 out of 27,368 other universities, but still seeks to do better.
Speaking when she featured on ZNBC radio 4’s The Platform programme, Tuesday, Prof Mwase explained that UNZA had maintained their ranking of 3,395 out of 27,368 universities globally.
“As University of Zambia, we have maintained [our ranking] at about 3,300 if not less in the world and here we are talking about universities over 27,000 ! And in Zambia we are still ranking [as] number one. Of course, we are not impressed with that and we are working everyday to improve our image, our ranking and we do look at those issues that would put your image as a university up there. And of course as a university, the main core functions of course teaching, research and community service and all these things require quality. So, those are the issues that we are always working on,” Prof Mwase said.
