The program offers a minor, develops courses related to Africa, promotes study-abroad programs and internships, raises funds to expand African Studies resources, and organizes campus and local community events pertaining to Africa. In addition, the program supports faculty and student research on Africa and facilitates dissemination of research through the African Studies Lecture Series, for faculty and guest presentations, and the Acacia Seminars, for presentations of student research and experiences.
