Institutional Structure and Implementation Strategy

Various offices and institutional arrangements exist. These include: the top management level (offices of the presidents, mainly for funding decisions); university-wide directorates such as the CSE Directorate, the UIL-TT Directorate; colleges and academic departments; research institutes/centers; and specialized offices such as JU-Jimma City Linking Office, Offices of Special Advisors of the top management;

The strategies for implementing CSE in JU mainly include: community mobilization/participation activities; facilitation of stakeholder forums; CS projects funded through centrally managed competitive schemes; centrally coordinated programmatic and multi-year CS projects; and college level funding schemes (competitive or possibly programmatic). Public-Private Partnership (PPP) is also an additional strategy that can be employed.
