The Interdisciplinary Unit for African Studies aims to connect the University’s research, education, and public service activities related to Africa across departmental boundaries, as well as serving as a hub for all members of the KU community with a connection to the continent. Over the next two years, its core members representing 10 different departments will lead efforts to collect relevant information from across the University, and make this available for Africa-related research and activities. Additionally, the Unit will work to promote academic exchange between the University and its African counterparts, serving as a main point of contact for matters related to the continent.
