The African Studies Program hosts and co-sponsors a rich and diverse array of Africa related educational programs and activities that complement the curriculum and highlight interdisciplinary scholarship on Africa. The events are designed to encourage critical conversations about issues facing African countries and help to enhance understanding of Africa in the global context. The events also promote cultural exchanges and critical conversations about ways to solve problems and help generate information that will inform what needs to happen to improve lives in African countries. Faculty affiliates interested in hosting an event focusing on Africa can reach out to us with a request for co-sponsorship and support. We are open to working together to host and co-sponsor successful educational events and programs.
