The African Studies Center (ASC) at the University of Michigan
provides strategic guidance and coordination for Africa-related education, research, and training activities on campus, and promotes opportunities for collaboration with African partners on the continent.
Founded in 2008, the center serves as a conduit for the university’s many Africa initiatives in the sciences, arts, humanities, social sciences, engineering, and medicine.
Funded by the Office of the President, these intiatives are African Heritage (AHI); African Social Research (ASRI); Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM-Africa); and U-M African Presidential Scholars (UMAPS) Program.
