The Africa Initiative at Washington University in St. Louis was established in 2018 to document the University’s formal and informal programs in Africa and to determine the level of interest in expanding and/or creating additional programs and initiatives. The initiative is an interdisciplinary endeavor committed to expanding knowledge and creating teaching, learning, and cultural opportunities for faculty, staff, and students. Washington University has programs and initiatives in over 36 countries in Africa, focusing on research, education, and innovation. The Africa Initiative works to create a framework to support and or strengthen these current engagements, build capacity and create opportunities for future collaborations.
Join the Africa Initiative for a conversation on current work in Africa. Featuring our colleagues in Africa, this event series fosters learning and offers opportunities for collaboration.
