On November 04, 2017, the Third Meeting of the Independent Forum of Rectors was held in Durrës with the participation of Rectors and other managing authorities of private higher education institutions (HEIs).
The Independent Forum of Rectors represents a platform that ensures the continuous communication and cooperation between the participating institutions and also serves to convey the achievements, opinions and views of participating HEIs to public authorities, stakeholders and to the wider public.
During the Third Meeting of the Independent Forum of Rectors, representatives of private HEIs pointed to the importance of the convening of the Rectors’ Conference as a legal obligation deriving from the new 2015 Higher Education Law as well as to the relevance of the finalisation of the adoption of by-laws that will ensure the full and proper implementation of the said Law as a crucial element of the Higher Education Reform.
Given that the current year represents the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the first private higher education institution in Albania, the representatives of participating HEIs agreed to organise a joint conference at the end of January 2018 that will focus on the contribution of private higher education in the social and economic development of the country.
