Abstract:July 1970 will by all accounts see the birth of three new Universities in East Africa - one at each of the capitals, Dar es Salaam, Kampala and Nairobi. The author attempts to propose some positive aspects which could promote a useful dialogue between the University and the Government on the one hand and the University and the public on the other. The direct issue at African universities is not really academic freedom. The direct issue that does need to be seriously considered is the whole positive question of how the University can participate vigorously in the exciting process of national development in an African country such as Kenya. To this end the author examines some ways in which the mobilization of the creative resources of the University and the State could be pooled and sharply focussed on the problem of national development.
