Roudani Campus to transform education in Casablanca
The new Roudani campus in Casablanca, Morocco, is the first campus to co-host students from different Honoris member institutions. Uniquely located in the city centre, the campus is open to students of three top institutions, as well as city residents through a programme of open debates and conferences. The 10,000-square-metre space challenges the classical approach to universities, bringing education into today’s Africa by inspiring cross-speciality collaboration, and by supporting innovation through its entrepreneur’s hub.

Africa has one of the world’s youngest and fastest growing populations. By 2050, the number of Africans below 18 is due to reach about 1 billion. Realising the potential of this demographic dividend cannot rely on a ‘just add people’ strategy. Africa’s rising prosperity must be rooted in sound leadership underpinned by a skilled, dynamic, African labour force. The continent therefore requires a robust, diverse and well-funded educational ecosystem.
