The African Studies program exists to enhance campus awareness of African cultures, as well as to provide a framework within which students may integrate the specific knowledge they gain about Africa from the various courses they take. African Studies cooperates with campus and community groups and individuals to develop linkages of mutual benefit with Africa. The African Studies program is actively exploring possibilities to establish linkages with academic institutions in Africa. Students who are interested in programs being developed in Africa should consult the director.
