Abstract:This book tells the story of how Vice Chancellor Walter Kamba (1931-2007) and the new cadre of Zimbabwean academics of the early 1980s engaged in the process of transforming the University in Zimbabwe into the University of Zimbabwe in the first decade of Zimbabwe's independence (1981-1992). Writing from different perspectives, the authors pay attention to the history of the university (Ken Manungo), transformations in the governance and management of the university (Ranga Zinyemba), the transformation of human resources processes (Lemuel Tsikirayi), the transformation of the student population and student governance and administration processes (Victor Ngonidzashe Muzvidziwa), developments in the academic curriculum (Obert Maravanyika), research and outreach programmes (Christopher Chetsanga), reconnecting with the larger world and international linkages (Ranga Zinyemba), and the University of Zimbabwe ten years later (1992) (Ranga Zinyemba).
