The University Administration Support Program (UASP) is funded by the Carnegie Carnegie Corporation of New York.

With primary support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, IREX has designed the University Administration Support Program (UASP) to contribute improving administration in a selected number of universities in the following countries: Armenia, Belarus, Georgia,Ukraine, Ghana, Tanzania and Uganda.

The University Administration Support Program provides competitively awarded short-term fellowships for mid and senior-level university administrators to spend approximately eight weeks with counterparts at respected US public universities to work on specific university administration reform projects. While in the US the fellows are required to prepare a case study on the management issue addressed. The case studies are then published and distributed to universities participating in the program.
Management Topics: Admissions Management, Faculty Development, Human Resources Management, Campus Life/Student Services, Quality Assurance, University Governance/Trustees, Alumni Relations, Community Relations, Fundraising/Development, Research Management, University Financing, Strategic Planning, Corporate Relations, Government Relations, International Relations, Technology Transfer.
