ASC 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.

We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, ASC needs you—because the world needs Victors.
