Phase 1 in Zimbabwe brought together 17 participants, from across ZULC's Executive Committee and various working groups (representing 11 different universities), to discuss what future success would look like for the consortium. Over the course of two full days the group took part in a variety of activities and discussions focusing on ZULC's values, capacity and structure - marrying future aspirations with realistic and achievable aims. This included refining and strengthening the ZULC strategy 2014-2018, culminating in collectively lifting the vision, mission and purpose of the consortium.
