Abstract:The two-fold need for independence and relevance can be summarized in the terms 'Africanization' or 'localization'. The most urgent suggestions for Africanization of the universities are: 1. the establishment of national Research Councils which will determine research directions and fund African scholars; 2. the granting of scholarships to African students for advanced study so that they can replace expatriate staff; 3. the improving of the reward system to induce talented Africans to go into university teaching instead of business or government; 4. the localizing of curriculum especially through African language studies and the production of 'applied' materials; 5. experimentation with all forms of curricular adaptation to the African scene.
