JGU’s research centres and institutes play an important role in advancing our research agenda and a significant part of our collaborative research work is carried out through them. Our research centres are conceptualised around subject areas of particular interest to the JGU research community and which also serve our research charter and overall vision. Over the past nine years, the University has established 52 research centres, in addition to three institutes that focus on behavioural sciences, executive education and leadership development and higher education research and capacity building.
