Africa Center

Our Mission

The mission of the Africa Center at ICRS is to expand and enhance knowledge and understanding of Africa, and its engagement in international affairs. In doing so, it works to foster a rigorous academic program for faculty and students in the Denver community and beyond who have an area studies interest in Africa and Africa in the diaspora, to promote excellence in teaching on Africa, and to facilitate research, dialogue, and immersive experiences and exchange for both students and faculty.

“As countries continue to grapple with COVID-19, the pandemic's impact on the African people has been less severe relative to the Western world. The Africa Center this year will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on the economy, democratic institutions, peace, security, and human development in Africa. We will also develop partnerships within the school, across campus and with African universities to foster learning, research and cultural experiences.”
