The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), established by ten Vice Chancellors in 2004, is a consortium of 85 African universities operating within 35 countries spanning the African continent. RUFORUM is coordinated by a Secretariat hosted by Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.
The organisation evolved from its predecessor, the Forum on Agricultural Resource Husbandry (FORUM) program of the Rockefeller Foundation. RUFORUM is registered as an International Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) and has mandate to oversee graduate training.
In October 2018, Capital One Group was contracted by RUFORUM to conduct a two day communication training at the Nairobi Safari Club in Nairobi, Kenya. The aim of the communication training was to build the capacities of RUFORUM member universities PROs with regards to their marketing communications skills especially around information sourcing, sharing and dissemination information to stakeholders, improvement of website content, traffic flow and visibility, increasing media access to research done at universities as well as engaging with more stakeholders.
